Fusciardi’s, Eastbourne’s much loved ice cream parlour, has been sold.

Established in 1967, Fusciardi’s has since been run by the same family and is a much-loved part of Eastbourne’s seafront experience, not just for tourists but also locals looking for a taste of real Italian gelato. 

Its reputation has spread far and wide, with Chris Evans recently plugging the business on Virgin Radio – he called it the “best gelateria in the country”

GPS – who organised the sale – said: “Luckily, the new owner James has the same passion for gelato and will continue to provide delicious treats for everyone to enjoy. 

Regular customers will be pleased to know the secret recipes have been passed on and the wonderful staff who create and serve the delicious gelato will remain.”
