About Us

Mark and Kari England

Mark England is a gelato master, painter, and world traveler (hence the collections displayed in his object tables). Art is his passion as is evident by the walls and ceilings of Dolcetti. Mark loves to create spaces where people come to relax, enjoy the company of friends and family and shape memories.

We’re the O.G. (Oldest Gelato) Shop in Utah

Dolcetti began in 2004 with three Italian ice carts around Salt Lake City. (You may have spotted us in front of the pre-Harmons era Emigration Market.) Since then we’ve found home at our unique space at 9th and 9th in Salt Lake City—serving macarons and pastries, tea and espresso, and a rotating cabinet of over 150 artisanal gelato flavors. 

We Make Everything from Scratch

And we’re obsessed with the cool stuff we get from it. Everything we put in our gelato has the integrity of its original flavor, whether it’s real fruit, pure nuts and oils, local milk, or fresh honeycomb candy. We’ll also delight you with seasonal flavors like eggnog and pumpkin spice. Follow us on instagram and we will take requests for the flavor you’ve been missing.

Ninth Moon Tea

We’ve recently started blending our own tea flavors.  Kari England introduced her Ninth Moon label in 2021 with yummy, rich green and black teas as well as herbal blends that smell as good as they look.  Kari hopes to expand her flavor line to include health oriented blends by 2022.

We Really Like Our Customers

Our proudest moments are when guests tell us they’ve never had anything like our gelato. Some say it’s the closest they feel to being back in Italy, or it’s the very best kind of ice cream, or they love each new flavor more than the one before it…  

And hey, sometimes we run out of Coconut Sticky Rice, or the thermostat breaks in July, or the phone just up and throws itself in the sink. And you guys are just the nicest about it. We’re honored that our treats get to be the fun part of your day.
