Carnevale poem:

By Anne Marie Clarke


Dolcino is Loughborough’s new, independent dessert diner.

Founded by a local Italian family descended from three generations of ice-cream makers, Dolcino brings you authentic Italian gelato, lifestyle and a whole range of waffles and crêpes to add a touch of sweetness to life.

Our promise is great products, great people, great place. We are a friendly, hard-working and fun-loving bunch of people who are passionate about hospitality and about making our guests’ day, every time.

Whatever else you do this summer, why not drop in and enjoy the funky, retro feel of the place; sit back, relax and sample a touch of la Dolce Vita!
