Loved the variety of flavors. Always fresh and creamy. Several sizes available. Can do a dish or cone, plus the seating around the corner overlooks the harbor, so a nice experience while you eat it, if you don't want to walk around with it.

We love Gelato, so when we travel we try the various Gelato stores to find the best and then we go back for more. In our book (both me and my partner) this is the best - not only in Ptown, but my partner says he thinks it is better than most Gelatos we had when we visited Rome -... More

Very filling but totally worth it. Creative flavors but nothing too out there. They provided tastings of any flavor we asked for so we could make the right choices. The small dish with 2 scoops was more than enough - and very delicious!

Best gelato in P Town perhaps on the Cape, creamy not grainy or synthetic. My first taste of gelato was almost 40 years ago in Italy and I like to have it when I can it is such a treat to my taste buds. I had the hazelnut (an Italian tradition) and chocolate, very yum. I Dream Gelato is amongst... More

It was not the best gelato I've eaten. Needed more flavor. I tried the hazelnut, salted caramel and chocolate. I like how you can have several flavors in one cup. Just wasn't as good of gelato as I like. Nice how you can walk out and enjoy the view of the water while you eat it. Nice atmosphere.

The best gelato place we found in ptown. They have a good flavor variety and free samples. Grab some walk to the beach overlook and relax in the sun.

I make ice cream and gelato, and enjoy trying the frozen treats and learning from others whenever I can. I've had bad gelato, great gelato, and the gelato at i dream of gelato does not impress me. We tried four flavors between us, and the flavors seemed weak and artificial, and there was more grainy texture than I prefer. There... More

We really do dream of gelato!!! Every time we visit Provincetown we make sure to get a smoothie from this restaurant. The smoothies are a little pricy, but are well worth it. They are so flavorful and taste very fresh. We hope to be back soon! The purple smoothie (can't remember the name, but has pineapple in it) is our... More

No matter where I try gelato, it doesn't seem to live up to the gelato at this place. Perhaps in Italy. She uses a hot method which means that it's really made from scratch and not a mix like that awful place down on Commercial Street. Love the variety of flavors. Very hard to choose one flavor, especially after being... More
