All gelato is not created equal....This gelato is, as they say, to die for ! It is almost impossible to get gelato in the US that tastes like what is sold in Italy....but Caffe Gelato Bertini has nailed it. Wonderful flavors that are not overpowering....but can be tasted to the last lick..... consistency so creamy....not gritty like many others I... More

We stopped for gelato after a long day exploring the Cape. It's down off a side road. The gelato was good but not the best we've ever had but we enjoyed it. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, greating everyone and chatting with the customers when there wasn't a long line. It's worth a stop.

Gelato reviewers frequently being by writing, "I've tasted gelato in Italy and the gelato at (pick a place in the U. S.) was/was not.......". I have never been to Italy so I can't comment on gelato found there but I do know what tastes good here in the United States. We live near and frequently visit an establishment in New... More

My wife and I looked forward to this place after reading the Tripadvisor reviews. We had been in Italy 2 months earlier and anticipated a great gelato. Unfortunately, this was not the case. The gelato was gummy and, actually, not very good. Come with low expectations and you may be satisfied.

We were introduced to Caffe Gelato Bertini on a foodie tour. The owners have developed their own unique flavors. The gelato is top quality. Flavors range from Cardamom to Salted Caramel. Don't set your heart on any favorite. Flavors change frequently based upon availability and the owners whim. We tried several flavors and enjoyed each and everyone. We will be... More

We stopped here after dinner because I usually trust Trip Advisors recommendations. The location is very central, small selection, very small sizes, average to high prices. Please do not go here if you think it will be anything like Italian gelato, it doesn't come close. I ordered a small 2 flavor cup (chocolate/espresso) and my family ordered small cones (pistachio).... More

Yes, it is the best gelato place ever! The staff is a bit peculiar, but you can tell they love what they serve and are very proud to do so. I enjoyed both visits and all four flavors. If only we had been in town for one more day… Closed on Wednesdays – so plan accordingly.

The best ice cream I have eaten outside Italy. The owners went to Bologna to learn how to make true gelato. Find it down a side street off Main Street (side street next to a bull themed restaurant).
