Gelato & Sorbetto


We create artisanal gelato and sorbets, made freshly every day in store. With ever-changing flavours, based on fresh seasonal products there is always a new one to try. We are passionate about the quality of the ingredients we use - our pistachios come from Bronte and our almonds from Avola and we personally source everything that goes into our products. 

Life is like a gelato, enjoy it before it melts.” 



At La Mucca Nera we strive to provide you with only the best Italian pastries, cakes & desserts. We use traditional recipes with a modern twist and use only fresh, high-quality ingredients. 

Our selection includes cannoli Siciliani, tiramisu, cantucci, chocolate salami and baba rum, delicious enjoyed with a glass of bubbles.......

“Dessert is like a feel good song, and the best ones make you dance.” 
Coffee is so much a part of Italian culture that the idea of not drinking it is as foreign as the idea of having to explain its rituals. 



Aperitivo in Italy is a pre-dinner drink, meant to “open” the palate. It gives you a chance to socialise, relax, and nibble as dinner approaches or is overlooked altogether. 

We offer a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks including cocktails, Italian wines and beers.

Bringing the aperitivo to Brighton.....

On Fridays, I prefer my espresso in a martini.
