The owner of a well-known gelati bar on Corydon Avene has passed away.
Gino Nucci of Nucci’s Gelati was one of the original owners of the establishment at 643 Corydon.
Gino, with the help of his wife Rosa and children Emilio and Maria, maintained the famous restaurant for the past 50 years.
“The Nucci family will continue on with his business legacy,” a statement from the Corydon Avenue BIZ read.
Nucci’s Gelati was one of the first gelati establishments to create non-dairy and sugar free gelato in Winnipeg.
UPDATE: We’re told Gino passed away on Sunday, March 20 from a heart attack.
