MARIo & LuigI
We just love ice cream!

The Borza family, originally from the beautiful Italian province of Frosinone, has roots in Ireland that date back to the
nineteenth century, and a long history in the food industry.
Today, the Borza & Iacobelli familes are proud to have a presence in both the green island of Ireland and its ancestral hometowns of Casalvieri & Montattico (Casalattico) in Italy. Back in the 19th century, Ercole Marsella, great uncle of Mario Borza, was involved selling Ice Cream in Limerick & Dublin, also Mario's Father, Silvio Borza, was selling Ice Cream from a traditional Ice Cream mobile in the early 80's Dublin. The tradition continues with Mario Borza & Luigi Iacobelli
bringing memorable culinary experiences to the Irish people with Mario and Luigi Gelato, Ireland’s most exciting gelateria.
