Each time I've had gelato at Sonny's it was tasty and rich. On a recent visit to Boca Raton, we decided to eat lunch there..... wow! I had a rich, full-bodied salad and a chicken pesto sandwich.... both were well-prepared and fresh. I also have tried various desserts, ices, and coffees there... Sonny's never disappoints. The charming staff is friendly... More

While we were in Boca Raton, we stopped a Sonny's for gelato at least four times not including the time we ate lunch there. Open late and the Gelato is as authentic as it gets.

Sonny's has changed hands. We were apprehensive when we settled in for dinner and found out. No worries! The new owners must have the gelato recipes because we tried several flavors, and they were all outstanding as usual. Oh yes, we did eat dinner too. There were five of us. We each had a different dish, and everyone was happy.... More

This is a great place to grab a gelato and sit outside. They have many flavors to satisfy your cravings. They also have other food and coffee drinks but gelato is their focus.

We have been getting gelato at Sonny's for six years but I must say that this year was a big disappointment. The mark of great gelato is smoothness and intense flavor. This year's experience was terrible. The gelato was crystalline and the flavors were very weak. The pistachio pieces were so small that they were barely noticeable. The mint chocolate... More

we asked at gumbo limbo where to get some ice cream and 3 ladies at once, and with great enthusiasm, said SONNY'S!!!! Off we went. It was actually a few miles away but it did not disappoint. It is on HWY1, a very, very busy road however they have a great hedge that blocks off a lot of the traffic.... More

We ate here based solely on the reviews from trip Advisor, and were quite pleased. The grilled antipasta plate was excellent, and large enough for two. Although the dinner menu is limited, the pasta putinesca was excellent, and also large enough to split especially if you plan on the great gelato. Somof the best I have had outside of Florence....

Yes, there is plenty of gelato here and its wonderful. What is also amazing is the food for lunch and dinner. Extremely creative paninis, executed perfectly. A nice stop for lunch, casual dinner or good coffee and a treat!

Delicious hoboken panini and also took a bite of my husband's chicken parm sandwich...this place is very good. Came here with our kids for a last minute anniversary dessert treat, end up having dinner as well. Sonny is very kind and had us laughing. The gelato selection is very very good and am hoping someday to try the spicy chocolate.... More
