Sorry folks, only tried one flavor, chocolate, not sorbet. It tasted like a dark chocolate, smooth, creamy and frozen firm, not runny. The waffle cone was crisp and fresh. The only sadness was that the spoons were those teeny little plastic Italian spoons and all of a sudden it was all gone. This is serious good Italian gelato. Next time... More

Really great gelato. Super creamy and flavorful. I had the coffee and it was yummy. They'll give you as many samples as you want. Unique flavors. Not very friendly service though.

Love the Strachiatella and Opera gelato. Light and refreshing. 60% less fat than ice cream. Also many fruit options.

Maybe I am just used to really good gelato, but this was not good. We tried a few flavors and only a couple were decent the others were not good.

Delicious, authentic fresh gelato. Lots of choices and even with a small cup, they let you pick 2 flavors in your cup. My favorite is a combo of a dark chocolate scoop with a berry mix scoop. And less calories than ice cream and most frozen yogurts.
