We had the tiramisu flavored. It was very tasty. Cool little area in downtown. Several tasty looking options are available. I would try again.

Gelato is worth a trip to find truly good little ices, and also exquisite chocolates. Limited seating, good coffee.

We spent a few years living in Europe, so when we walked past a gelato place, we were excited. They have an ok selection, not the largest we've seen. There was one girl working there and she definitely wasn't the friendliest person we came across on this trip, but the gelato itself was very good and my kids loved it.... More

It's more of an adult place than your typical kid driven ice cream parlor with unique flavors like strawberry basil, mojito, blueberry thyme, lemon verbena...Very strong delish coffees too! I really love this place.

The mint chocolate chip is great! The peanut butter as well. Don't miss the opportunity to ask the crazy 8 balls a question or two on the way out!

After traveling to Italy and then trying gelato in the US, it is hard to find a place that has decent gelato. The gelato at Dolce is fresh and homemade! It's the closest you can find to real Italian gelato. We were very impressed and they make unique flavors.

So nice to have our gelato favorably compare to the "Masters of Gelato" in Italy. We do make our gelato fresh daily with fresh, whole food ingredients. Thank you! More

The chef invents ice cream flavors: one made with the local beer, others with fruit or veggies in season, or one of my favorite 'regulars' pear with blue cheese. Samples are offered freely--making your choice even tougher. Ah, but what a problem to have!

Had the tiramisu gelato and my friend had the raspberry which I tasted. Soooo good. Made there and the owner said she makes her gelato without eggs and 100 calories less than ice cream. What's not to love? Had a wonderful lunch at Dharma Blue Cafe but saved dessert for Dolce's. It was worth it. Will def. go there next... More
