I happened just to be driving around randomly looking for a place to eat and this place caught my eye. It had just opened up recently when I happened to stop by. I walked in and was felt at home, very warm colors and a nice ambiance all around. This place has such a nice staff that is very friendly.... More

I really liked this place but there is a sign saying its closed. No other information available at this point in time. Too bad when small local places can't make it.

Tried a few oddball flavors, wound up with coffee. As I love coffee ice cream and gelato, it was coffee enough. But it just wasn't as rich and creamy as I expect gelato to be. Still, the "kiddie" size was adequate.

Happen to find Via Gelato through an online search of events. They have jazz music on weekends which is what drew me there. Went for gelato and jazz on a Saturday evening though they have other cafe food and crepes too. The gelato was very good (we had dark chocolate and nutella). The jazz music was super - looked like...

I'm not a huge gelato fan, but when I ate my Birthday Cake gelato from Via Gelato, I ended up getting a pint to go!

Just try it! A nice break from the more expensive meal options in the Glen. The staff was friendly and the food was great. Wish I tried this place sooner as I live close by and have passed it many times.

A small, but good restaurant that is what Corner Bakery wants to be - local, yummy salads, soups, panini and to die for homemade gelato. Often has live guitar music in the corner. Also a great supporter of the community. Very friendly and lovely decor - the walls are painted as a mural of an Italian street.
