Delightful gelato

I've been going here since it opened. The Italian style pistachio flavor is my favorite but there are many flavors to choose from. 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... read more

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

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

The best gelato around if you can't take a trip to Italy. They have a great selection and if you don't see the flavor you want in the showcase, be sure to ask because they have lots more out back. The owner and staff are so friendly. Trust me, my husband is from Italy and we've been there several times... More

I live down the street from Dolce Freddo Gelato and we love it. The place is always packed in the summer. They have a lot of flavors to choose from so you can keep going back and never have the same one twice. It's quite small but they do have a few tables and chairs both inside and out. They... More

After eating at Taza across the street we decided to treat ourselves to some gelato. It brought us back to Italy. Wonderful. Just wonderful.
