Shoppers soon will have a place to grab ice cream as they stroll down Worth Avenue.

Jose-Luis Duran, manager of Renato’s, Pizza al Fresco and Al Fresco, said he plans to open a gelato shop at 66 Via Mizner with his mother, Arlene Desiderio. The new business will be called Piccolo Gelato and is scheduled to open in November.

Duran said the shop will serve authentic gelato and sorbetto on fresh, hand-rolled waffle cones. He said they’ll eventually include gelato cakes, pops and bom-boms.

“We had been unhappy with the ice cream/gelato suppliers to the restaurants for a while, so we decided to produce for ourselves,” Duran wrote in an email. “We think that it’ll be really nice for the neighborhood.”

The shop will be run by chef Samuele Carannante, a native of Naples, Italy.

The space used to be the home of Barzina, an antique store filled with items owner Gretchen Bentley gathered from around the world.
