Sweet Stracciatella = Summer Satisfaction

In a city where hot chicken reigns, you need something cool and delicious to wash it down and satisfy your sweet tooth. Luckily, we've got the one and only Legato Gelato bringing smiles and filling our sugary cravings. Located in Edgehill Village, next door to Taco Mamacita, it's become a hub for your Italian dessert fix. While we don't have poster designs for Legato Gelato like we do for other restaurants or hot spots in town, we did have the privilege of designing their brand and packaging.


Founder Terri Ann-Nicholls discovered her love of gelato in Spain. After getting married in 2010 and moving to her husband's hometown here in Nashville, she decided to pursue her passion for gelato and start her business. We've done a good amount of artwork for local businesses, and we enjoyed the process of designing a brand that's light, fun, and simple.

While their flavors vary, the ones that are normally featured are: madagascar bourbon vanilla, stracciatella, sicilian pistachio, hazelnut, coffee, dark chocolate, and lemon. Check out their website ( for the other 37 flavors that come in waves. You can also follow their Twitter account (@LegatoGelato) for daily posts on what featured flavors they carry. We recommend stracciatella which is milk-based with little chocolate flakes infused or pistachio for a nutty, Italian taste with a sugary coating.
