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

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

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.

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 amazing as well. The sorbetto is just as amazing with... 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
