We spotted Gelato Gal and found it easy access and plenty of parking. The building is adorable and very inviting. The wonderful aroma of smoked bbq had our mouths watering...even though we came for the wonderful gelato experience. We have enjoyed their delicious gelato on...More

We really wanted this to be a great place since it is so convenient for us, and we are bar-b-que lovers. But it was a big disappointment. The gelato lacks the rich flavor of other gelato and has the texture of refrozen ice cream. Not...More

Having recently arrived from Italy, we've missed our daily gelato. When we came upon the Gelato Gal and read its reviews, we were hopeful and ready to dismiss the BBQ smell. The door was locked and the young man who opened the door had food...More

Thank you for visiting my restaurant! It was unfortunate that you arrived shortly before we opened for the day. I ask my staff keep the door locked until the official opening time, but often they will open the door and try to accomadate early customers....More

High-qualiy, European-style gelato with a nice flavor assortment. AND in-house-smoked pork for dinner. We've been disappointed every time we've tried gelato in the US, but the owner of this shop makes very good gelato. She studied in Italy to learn exactly how to make it...More

Full confession, I'm a foodie, even a snob. And I love their gelato. Peach Sorbetto, coconut, and especially chocolate zen. But I now will drive down Rt 1 in summer just to get their smoked chicken and salmon too. Perfect to make salads. Who cares...More

The gelato is average. The chocolate was pretty good, but some of the other flavors were not good. More importantly, the place has an overwhelming barbecue smell. I get it that the place sells barbecue meat, but that doesn't go with gelato. And whenI got...More

I really wanted to love gelato gal. It's in a cute beachy looking building with easy free parking. But that's where the charm stops. When you wak through the door (actually even in the parking lot) the smell of barbecued meat is overwhelming which is...More

Having eaten gelato in many, many towns in Italy, I think Gelato Gal's gelato is as good as, if not better, than the gelato I've had in Italia, especially the pistachico!!!!!!!

The sorbetto selections were flavorful and worth the trip: peach, strawberry, blueberry, watermelon, melon (cantaloupe). The peach was especially good, with locally sourced peaches. The gelato was fine, but not spectacular, but, then again, we just returned from Italy, so it's probably not a fair...More

The gelato at Gelato Gal is nothing short of awesome. And now they've added BBQ to their offerings. Delicious and well priced. Our family particularly liked the ribs and chicken. Highly recommend Gelato Gal. Our next treat will the be the handmade chocolates at Gelato...More

It's a Gelato worth pushing through squalls to find, worthy of a pilgrimage, a goal noble enough to inspire you to craw out of a fire-warmed home and sail forth into the night. But, don't take our word for it - see for yourself how our Gelato makes your eyes mist and your knees weak!Not only do we offer the finest award-winning gelato, but we also create hand-made chocolates and smoked/BBQ meats, fish and chicken! Everything is made from scratch using authentic methods to give you a most tasty experience!
