Amazing Gelato

What a treasure to have something this wonderful in Methuen. They also have stores in Newburyport and Portsmouth, NH, but this is the mother ship. The gelato has amazing flavors. Many varieties are seasonal or occasional. The chocolate is a constant and the best I've ever had. The ginger is... read more

Not only is the Gelato wonderful, but the owner is also super nice and has been very generous in lending support to the city schools. Why not have your ice cream and feel good about it, too. I would give this establishment a "5" except that they seemed unable to accommodate my daughter's nut allergies. I realize that this is... More

The gelato here is excellent. The Blood Orange was as good as gelato I had not long ago in Florence. Families were streaming in and happy children of all ages were streaming out. Counter staff were very busy but were smiling and cordial--this is a neighborhood jewel and it appears that Methuen knows that..

This was my first time coming and even tho it's a small place, the ambience was relaxing and the many flavored of the gelato are all appetizing! I try the almond joy; creamy and very delicious! Try it and chill at the alfresco area. I have been there twice in one week! 😋 It can be addicting!

The gelato here has such depth of flavor that you don't get with ordinary ice cream. The staff is friendly and offer a taste if you want to try a new flavor. There is a wide variety of flavors that change constantly. Do your taste buds a favor and visit this place.
