The nice thing about Dolce Freddo is they stay open a little bit later when you just want to go out for a lite dessert.

No one compares! Their gelato is authentic, creamy, and delicious. They have too many flavors to list. If you are unsure which flavor or flavors to order, you can have a small sample to try. My favorite is the chocolate. They offer personal size gelato by the scoop or you can bring home a large styrofoam container full of your... More

Excellent gelato and sorbets all made fresh in-house. Good value for the quantity of gelato or sorbet that you get. The roasted almond gelato is wonderful, if they have the flavor when you visit.

The nice people behind the counter will happily give out samples on tiny spoons to help you make up your mind. I've had gelato in Italy that wasn't as good. They also make gelato cake. Espresso is...

Smooth & refreshing gelato. They will let you sample the flavor you wish to try. Staff very friendly. A little pricey, but well worth it.

I absolutely love this place. The ice cream is incredible. The owner studied and worked in Italy making ice cream and has blessed us with his amazing skill to deliver that delicious ice cream here. Great environment and atmosphere, great Italian ice cream and a great caring owner who is constantly working and bringing us new, creative flavors. I suggest... More
