I love that they offer ice cream, gelato, AND sorbet. It seems like a lot of places don't offer a non-dairy option and if they do, they only have one or two flavors. This place had 6 or 7! I had two flavors of gelato and my boyfriend had cookies and cream ice cream. We were both very happy with... More

WoW,,,been driving by here for a long time, decided to stop in today. $3.50 for a half scoop? Not even a full scoop of ice cream. Definitely won't be back here. Can't even say how the ice cream was, there wasn't more than two licks. I asked for a sugar cone and got handed a cake cone. Didn't say anything,... More

After a heavy dinner, we stopped for something sweet--wonderful. Not a huge selection, but so delicious and creamy. We loved the gelato. Wonderful end to the evening. Prices were very reasonable.

Homemade ice cream, sherbert AND gelato! My favorite ice cream flavor is Almond Joy --- vanilla ice cream with fresh coconut, chocolate chips and almonds! YUMMMMMM! Gelato is the best in the area. What a rare treat -- homemade ice cream!

Great gelato and homemade ice cream. Located on the second floor this is well worth the trip. Friendly staff, reasonable prices and many delicious flavors to choose from.

While visiting family in Venice, we were driving around to see the area and came across Bentley's. We had some of their homemade gelato. We sat in their restaurant and ate a very filling cup of gelato and noticed that this establishment is very active in the community. That made it even better to support them. They had lots of...

a++. Large, fresh and smooth. Not to be missed. To spend six bucks on a two scooper and get this huge portion with silky smooth coconut seems like I underpaid!!
