Sitting on the outside under the lights set a great atmosphere. Meals were generous in size and very tasty. Our group was 10. I stayed for coffee and some chocolate gelato that was excellent. The servers were attentive. I would go there for food or gelato anytime!

Stopped here for an afternoon treat based on the great reviews. The place is not the nicest looking, but I wasn't there for the atmosphere as long as the gelato was good. There was a wide range of flavors available. I couldn't decide between the salted caramel and maple walnut, so I got 1/2 and 1/2 in a large cup.... More

Best Gelato's, Sorbets, Cookies, Milkshakes, Expressos & the list goes on. You can usually find Sonny sitting outside speaking Italian to his customers. Sonnys has the best selection of authentic tasting gelatos & sorbets around. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Everyone is always helpful & friendly. Have yet to try an entree here but they always... More

First let me say that we have been going to Sonny's since it opened, at least a decade or more. I always recommend it for dessert and have brought a ton of people here over the years. I know in recent years they have added food, and I thought, what a great idea! We ate there a few times, mostly... More

I had the mango gelato and it was one of the best desserts I ever had! My wife had the pistachio which was also very good. The prices are high but if you are looking for top notch authentic Italian gelato there is no competition. The live singer with accordion was a nice touch as well.

The building is small with only a few tables, but the service and gelato were both exceptional!! There is an extensive selection of gelato (I'd say 40+ flavors). There's also a drive thru if you're in a hurry.

When you walk in, it's not picture perfect. The quirky building has been converted and they have made the best of it. Now... this place offers great treats- best gelato (sometimes 25+ flavors, favorite is cinnamon ), a dozen local made italian bakery goods (ours was fresh and perfect), good espresso and even full dinner entrees (haven't tried but they...

Used to go here more often and then other places opened that had better gelato. Why discontinue the pistachio flavor saying that the ingredients cost too much ? Other places do not have the same problem !
