I have heard ravings of this little gelato shop and decided to give it a go. It was very good but it didn't knock me off my feet.

This is definitely the place for a creamy gelato. there were probably 16-20 flavors available. They allow customers to sample prior to purchase, but request that you limit it to 3 flavors. I highly recommend

After reading all the reviews, we were so excited to try it. The flavors were good and it is not too sweet, but I did not think it was worth the cost. Save your money and get a scone or a croissant down the street.
