Leonardelli? An Italian in Klosterneuburg? “Yes, my roots are in Italy,” the ice cream man assures, not without pride. His grandfather, Ludovico Leonardelli, comes from Trentino, a small province in northern Italy. Then Ludovico emigrated to Vienna, took care of the construction of the Stadtbahn arches and then produced confectionery. Then came the idea of ​​ice cream. Ice cream production is now in the Leonardelli family in the fourth generation, because Franz Leonardelli’s daughter Mona took over the business from her father.

None of this changes the fact that the preferred flavors are still the same: vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate are still successful individually, but also in combination. Franz Leonardelli can’t help it either, although one might think it has nothing to do with ice cream consumption: “These are my favorites, too. I like ice cream.”

Therefore, children and diabetics are offered ice cream, ice cream for allergy sufferers, as well as regular ice cream. “The concept arose because, as a young girl, I was never allowed to eat anything sweet for health reasons, and therefore I was very sad,” says Nagy.
