After a stint in Italy, Argentine owner César and his Catalan partner Gemma decided to bring gelato to Barcelona. Since 2000, they’ve been producing their own Italian ice cream for their two Arlequino (“Harlequin” in Spanish) shops in Barceloneta and Sagrada Família.
Gelato is lower in fat and sugar than regular ice cream, which means less guilt as you enjoy star flavors like New York Cheesecake, Argentine dulce de leche, orange sorbet and passion fruit frozen yogurt. More than just ice cream shop, Arlequino also serves desserts, smoothies, waffles, crêpes and churros; savory items like focaccias, empanadas and tapas; and cocktails, sangrias and Italian coffee. There are vegan, gluten-free and lactose-free options too.
Grab a quick bite to eat or something to go at the Sagrada Família location. Free wifi.
