Italo - a taste of Italy in downtown Stavanger
It is always fun to see new places opening in town! This time it is a new coffee shop and café that is opening in downtown Stavanger (in Smedgata) and it is called Italo. The place is started and operated by two Italian guys and I was very happy to hear from Alessandro Palella that there is a focus on products being homemade and that there is a focus on quality. This means that you get great coffee from a barista with a passion and homemade gelato with flavors that includes pistachio, Stracciatella, strawberry, espresso etc. There will also be some food available and it seems like there is stuff like lasagna, salads, parmigiana and of course sweet stuff like tiramisu and panna cotta.
In the last year we have seen places like Coffeeberry and Baristas Coffee closing down in Stavanger. I hope that Italo has what it takes to make it in Stavanger – and I hope that the people of Stavanger will appreciate and use this place! So far it looks promising and I look forward to checking it out again – for coffee, food and gelato! Read more about Italo on their Facebook page.
