Simply the best Gelato in the world! Sea Salt Caramel is to die for! An absolute must visit - plenty of samples too.

Great gelato with lots of choices. They encourage you to taste any number of flavors and with any size gelato you can ask for them to put in multiple flavors. I went two nights in a row and their flavors had already changed! It has a pretty modern interior with nice seating (but can be a bit crowded with local... More

Excellent gelato and so many flavors to choose from. Don't be deceived --- the small size may look small but they pile it up so it's plenty. Also, if you can, try the giant chocolate chip cookies --- they are so good!

This little spot is worth a visit. We stopped in for an after dinner treat. A huge selection of flavors. The smallest dishes were piled high for us and the staff was all really friendly in spite of a very busy night. Definitely will go back if I am in the area again.

Wide selection to choose from. This is a clean and pleasant facility. Like that you can taste before you purchase. WIFI available to enjoy a connection while eating.

The gelato here is amazing, completely delicious with tons of flavors to choose from! They're also great about giving out free samples so you can pick from the many many flavors!

Can't say enough good about the product and service here. Only caveat - don't go after 8PM on a college in session night cause most of the gelato will be gone and many students taste testing MANY flavors. Love the chocolate with chili flavor.

Great variety of flavors and their drinking chocolate is the best. Get a great discount when the temperature is below freezing.

Not a meal, but a wonderful treat afterward. Or instead of. Interesting flavors allowing combinations in the same container -- cocoanut and double fudge for instance. The rating system did not allow for dessert, so I listed 'coffee or tea' even tho' it isn't appropriate. The rating system did not allow me to say I visit regularly, at least once... More

I am not a big ice cream person, but gelato is different and the Gelato Fiasco is the best. I sampled 6 different flavors but settled on 2 and wished I could have had more. Great place to sit and enjoy a great treat with family and friends
