With spring well and truly underway, morning temperatures are getting slightly more bearable and good ol' summer feels like it's inching closer every day. And what better way to celebrate, than with a brand new beachside gelato store?

Already a firm neighbourhood favourite in both Hawthorn and Collingwood, Piccolina Gelateria has spawned a third location in St Kilda

The new Acland Street store sports a Hecker Guthrie-designed fitout like its siblings — the design a playful nod to the 1950s in Southern Italy — but it'll also has a few key differences tying it into this new locale. A big, open facade embraces St Kilda's streetside buzz, with gelato-hued interiors offset by a glorious serving bench of square-cut Italian tiles.

Here, you can get your mitts on 20 of Piccolina's all-natural handmade gelati, as well as four granita varieties. And prepare to go a little bit nuts with the chocolate and hazelnut — Piccolina St Kilda is kitted out with its own liquid chocolate fountain, drizzling signature house-made Nutella-style sauce 24 hours a day.

Piccolina St Kilda is now open at 137 Acland Street every day from noon till late.
