Description: 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!

Sad but true. The Gal is no longer offering her exquisite gelato and BBQ - they are permanently closed. Let us now take a moment to contemplate our futures without fresh fabulous gelato.

A bit off the beaten path, this stand alone treat shop is worth the visit. Homemade fresh and original gelatos and sorbets for the whole family to enjoy!

Maybe I'm comparing it to amazing gelato I just had in Europe, but this was pretty good, that's the best I can say - no complaints. Servings were large and the staff was VERY nice!

I have been a fan of Gelato Gal since they opened. Their gelato is very good and they have many interesting flavors to keep everyone happy. I recently tried their new location and tasted the smoked salmon. It was just ok and the sides were tasteless. The platters servings were small in size and frankly overpriced by several dollars.

Our visit last evening to Gelato Gal was a very positive experience. The two gals that helped us (and provided us with MANY samples of gelato) were very sweet, kind and welcoming. This was our 1st try of gelato and YUM! Our favorite was the cherry vanilla. I had the smoked salmon pita sandwich, and again YUM! We love trying... More

The service was fast, informative, and friendly. The food was plentiful and inexpensive, I would rate it as a step-above average. Great if you're there with kids and on a budget.

Had a friendly conversation with the server and 4 excellent, creamy scoops of gelato between the two of us. I had Amaretto and chocolate zen while my sis had the zen and coconut. The chocolate was some of the best, most intense chocolate flavored ice cream that I've had in a long time. We loved the other Flavors too.

Hubby and I loved it. The owner was there and she took the time to explain the different flavors. Definitely plan on going back!

I've purchased gelato, bbq & chocolates many times from Gelato Gal. Last nite I took pints of hot chocolate & chocolate zen gelato to a friends for dinner & got rave reviews. The hot chocolate has a peppery finish & the chocolate zen is heavenly. Amanda , Deb & the staff are friendly, professional & committed to delivering an excellent... More

I have enjoyed the Gelato, homemade candies, pulled pork and smoked salmon many times at Gelato Gal, last week I held a reunion for old friends and served some of my GG favorites. Many of my guests were from out of town and were blown away from the huge flavors of the pulled pork and smoked salmon. Needless to say... More
