Fiorello's Artisan Gelato

made local in san rafael,ca since 1982


Our Story.

Fiorello Anthony (Tony) Bonviso founded Fiorello’s Artisan Gelato in 1982, after over a year of intensive research and product development to fulfill a dream. Tony wanted to bring to the Bay Area an unfamiliar, yet wonderful and luxurious treat – luscious gelato and mouthwatering sorbets.


His priority and focus has been, and continues to be, to develop and produce distinctively delicious flavors. The parameters of producing such a product require select ingredients, artisan formulas, custom processes, and highly specialized equipment. The results are unmistakable –– products that are –– pure, dense, and intense, with a silky texture that is unsurpassed. He has formulated over two hundred custom flavors including Black Sesame Gelato, Blackberry Cabernet Sorbet, Scarlet Orange Sorbet, and Knob Creek Butter Pecan Gelato at the request of culinary professionals. The categories include gelatos, sorbets, sherbets, no-fats, low-fats, reduced-fats, frozen yogurts, and super premiums using a wide variety of ingredients including… goat milk.


Over the years, he has earned the respect of innumerable restaurateurs, winemakers, business professionals, and personal customers.

His established expertise extends through his affiliation with industry contacts as he continues to be involved in judging seasonal, professional dessert competitions.


He is an immensely dedicated family man with three grandchildren who always make sure grandpa keeps their freezer fully stocked. His commitment to family, friends, and business associates reflect his belief in honesty, responsibility, and the power of kindness.


To this day Fiorello’s remains committed to continuing education, product development and improvement, innovation, and collaboration with chefs, friends, and people who just enjoy good eats. Tony and the Fiorello’s team encourage anyone interested in comments, questions, suggestions, or requests, to contact them.
