Last weekend, after eating at the Barbecue Market across the street, my family and I stopped at Pitango for gelato. Having recently returned from a trip to Italy where we ate good gelato every day, we wanted to give this place a try. It turned...More

Pitango is a gelateria of a different kind. They do not offer too many flavours but all are excellent. The gelato is creamy but not too creamy and also, the flavours are not too sweet. Very refreshing gelato for a summer day. My favourite gelateria...More

I ate here twice on a recent visit, and four times on a previous visit. Seriously the most creamy, flavorful, delicious gelato (and sorbet) outside of Italy. Order the chocolate hazelnut gelato and raspberry sorbet. The crema is also very good. For a small (you...More

Small and cozy place, surprising combination of flavours but very expensive. Not enough place to sit down and it was really busy.

My nephew and I had stopped at this place. It is a rather small place and you will likely eat your gelato standing up against the counter. On my nephew's advice I tried the Affogato - a gelato that is served side by side with...More

We went to Pitango after having delicious gelato in Rome last spring. The ice cream was very good, but it was not gelato. And it was not cheap. Disappointing. Staff were nice, though

The place looks authentic and it's on a busy bustling street near a lot of other excellent eateries. The service was adequate but without any smiles. And when we asked for a 2nd sample, they were not happy. You know when the staff makes you...More

Pitango Gelato creates authentic gelato focusing on classic Italian flavors rather than novelties or trends. Made with grass-fed organic milk from a single-herd farm and fresh organic fruit and nuts, our products contain no flavorings, no colorings, nor artificial ingredients of any kind. We also our coffee very seriously. It is made with organic, single-estate beans roasted especially for us in small batches by a local boutique roaster. We use a traditional espresso machine that requires some fussing and banging but delivers a perfect shot every time. And we make our cappuccino with organic grass-fed milk, steamed for every individual order.
