Stopped here for a quick dessert after dinner downtown. It is located in a busy shopping area by the college. Overall it was a very quaint shop with neat decor but the busyness of the area kind of ruined it for us. The gelato was your normal gelato. Nothing crazy or special. The staff was very friendly. We would probably... More

I stopped by here cause I love gelato and lived in Italy where it's everywhere. This is some of the worst gelato I ever had. Find somewhere else to go. The flavors did not taste what they were suppose to be.

Everyone in our very picky, diet sensitive, group found something absolutely delicious to enjoy. Both the gelato and ice cream were amazing. The staff was very professional and friendly. One gal even offered to take a family picture and took several for us.

FABULOUS ice cream and gelato! We stopped in after lunch just to peek and the guy behind the counter was incredibly helpful and friendly. I really enjoyed that he seemed to be genuinely interested in the customers. The environment would be great for reading or studying, too. My boyfriend had the Salted Caramel gelato and I had the Banana Cashew... More

These guys have a must try Gelato. Every flavor I've tried so far i have been impressed with. I would definitely recommend either of the chocolate flavors, each very delicious. Will definitely come back next time I'm craving something sweet!

I was in the neighborhood and dying for a root beer float. I wanted what I remembered from my childhood (a zillion years ago). I got plain vanilla ice cream and they gave me a can of A&W root beer. It was WONDERFUL! The ice cream was hard and creamy and had a great vanilla flavor. The root beer with... More
