Authentic spots to enjoy the Italian delicacy…

The Suhail star may have been spotted in August, but we do have some time to go before we start feeling that cool winter breeze. If you want a super quick fix, why not slurp on a gelato from one of these Dubai spots?

The frozen treat hails from Italy and has a texture that is denser, smoother, and richer than ice cream.

Here are 5 places where you can get gelato in Dubai
