Great gelato and ice cream with many flavors that push boundaries like Aztec Chocolate, and all the usual suspects too. Great milkshakes and banana splits as well

Great flavors with fresh taste, lots of variety in a very nice setting. Good location on North Nevada, near Costco. Had the lemon raspberry and it was wonderful. Gelato is always pricy but well worth it.

We stopped here for dessert since this restaurant only sells ice cream and gelato. This is the Nevada Ave Location. They offered a lot of rich flavors and both my wife and I really enjoyed what we had. We ended up with four different flavors. In addition to the usual chocolate and vanilla, there were a variety of specialty ice... More

There are lots of unique flavors and something for everyone's taste. I took my family there and even my six month old grand daughter loved the atmosphere and especially the Nutella breakfast ice cream.

We had a hankering for ice cream and didn’t want to drive downtown to Josh and Johns. Glacier is the other good, local option, and we had been to both this location as well as the one in Boulder on other visits before. And anyway, I wanted some gelato. No one was in line ahead of us that Sunday evening,... More

What a treat to beat the heat of a hot summer evening. Interesting flavours to choose from but if you have a favourite, don't depend on it being available the next time you visit as they change the menu often. You never know, you might find a new favourite.

The gelato was great. Haven't tried the ice cream yet...then again, why would you eat ice cream if they offer gelato. The gelato selection was small, but still offered enough to choose from.

I've been there 3 times in the recent past. The last time I had 'Carmelized Orange" gelato. It was the first time I've seen that offered anywhere. I love trying new things. It was delicious. They also offfered a lot of other flavors of gelato, ice cream and coffee. I brought a friend and we both enjoyed it very much.... More

Family and I were visiting Colorado Springs. Ice cream was very good (especially the homemade toffee topping), but service was amazing. Thanks to the personable, young woman with the blue hair (sorry, we didn't catch your name).
