All I know is, the gelato is amazing.

We were walking after dinner, and had not had dessert because we didn't like the options where we ate. So we thought we would have something later when we got back to our hotel. However, we walked past Cafe Del Hidalgo and glimpsed the gelato counter. I am a gelato fanatic and had to go in. The... read more

We had just eaten and I was in search of something sweet. Amazing atmosphere to have a snack. We just had gelato and it was delicious! The peanut butter was especially some of the best I have ever had. They were also cheaper than a gelato store down the street and took credit cards!! A must!!!!

We went in to get something fast so ordered a sandwich and salad. We waited over 20 mins and our food was not ready. We saw them microwaving sandwiches that should be pressed. We requested a refund and left. They need help in the kitchen department.

Our kids love the gelato in the summer months and the hot cocoa here in the winter months. Fun historic setting and the staff gets orders out quickly. Their gelato is the best!

We stopped here for a bite and were pleasantly surprised by the favors of the paninis. I ordered turkey with sliced apples and cherry preserve. I think it was called the Mona Lisa. Perfect balance of meat and the crunch of the apples along with the tart of the cherries. My son ordered the Venetian. I did not get to... More

Referred here by other restaurant staff and was a good referral. Had Tiramisu, cappuccino and sorbet. Very relaxing atmosphere in a convenient location and nice music.

A must stop! Delightful little spot for a delicious panini and dessert. The best in the area. Friendly staff offers samples while you make your perfect selection.

We stopped here for lunch because we were starving and it was the first place we came upon that wasn't pizza. I was a tad confused upon entering but helpful wait staff directed me to the counter where I would order a sandwich (rather than gelato or espresso). I ordered the Mona Lisa panini and it was GREAT. I would... More

I just got back from Boston, and while Mike's Pastry Shop there was excellent, the gelato fell short when compared with Café Hidalgo. We always go to get gelato at least twice here each year. My favorite is the limoncello. You can also eat paninis and sandwiches - paninis are great. My husband loves the coffee. This is a must-do... More
