Back in May, Quay Quarter Lanes officially opened, boasting twelve new restaurants and bars. Among the exciting new additions to Sydney's hospitality scene was Zini, a gelateria from charming dessert enthusiast Matteo Zini.

While the shop nails classic Italian flavours, it doesn't shy away from trying to do things a little differently. The gelato is created right in front of you in an old-school vertical Cattabriga machine, yuzu sake gelato is continually being churned out for neighbouring Omakase restaurant Besuto, and there are regular gelato degustations for those that want to dive into different sides of gelato.

Following a successful vegan degustation, Zini's next variation will focus on truffles. Attendees will be able to taste their way through Matteo's range of truffle-heavy recipes and flavour creations.

The four gelatos are a yolk-based custard gelato with truffle shavings, a portabello mushroom and truffle gelato, pecorino cheese gelato topped with truffles and a white chocolate, truffle and pistachio creation.

Tickets are $52 and include a coffee to perk you up on arrival, a guided tour through the flavours with Matteo himself and a take-home tub containing all four of the limited-edition gelato creations.
