Resides in this Gelato shop. They have a wide variety of flavors including salted caramel (my favorite), rose hip, coffee, and cookies n cream. Absolutely delicious. The staff was great as well.

Great, real Italian gelato all made by hand with love! They use fresh and natural ingredients, and have a variety of delicious flavor choices in cups or cones. They also sell sorbet, sodas, water, cookies, and chocolate. Seats available. The shop is a bit small,...More

Free tastes offered with some unusual flavors. Yes, the pistachio gelato in Italy was delicious but the Rose gelato here was exceptional. It was smooth and subtle as well as beautiful to look at. Everyone was super friendly, too. We'll be coming back again and...More

I don't normally eat gelato, but when the wife wants some on vacation, you just got to stop. I must admit, this is the best gelato I have tasted. Not a lot of selection ( at least eigth today), but that makes for some righteous...More

Generous portions, generous offers of tastes, unusual flavors constantly changing--great place to get ice cream (and much cheaper than gelato in Italy. . .). Try it and you'll keep coming back, as we did.
