A scoop of time-honoured Italian dessert-making tradition, another of savvy Malaysian inventiveness, topped with a confident finesse in execution: Piccoli Lotti should hit the sweet spot for gelato acolytes, serving smooth, sumptuous concoctions that span classic flavours like pistachio or hazelnut, bolstered by newfangled novelties such as blue-dyed pulut tai tai with glutinous rice bits or chrysanthemum with cacao nibs that playfully & pleasurably reinvigorate familiar childhood indulgences. The nuances are clean & clear, distinct & nicely balanced, with a natural-tasting freshness that underscores this parlour's small-batch, hand-crafted philosophies. Founder Nge Seng says he spent a month in Bologna training in the art of gelato, & there's little doubt he learned well. A basic scoop starts at RM8 (with a three-scoop serving costing at least RM18); other flavours include Peruvian dark chocolate, Madagascar vanilla, mango, raspberry, durian, affogato with almond brittles, & matcha with adzuki beans. You can also have a scoop pressed into a soft & fluffy panini-inspired bread roll or paired with a waffle for RM13.
