We always stop here to have a gelato. Our favorite is coconut. I highly recommend stopping here and having a gelato. On a hot day its the best.

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

What can you say about a place that just has lots of ice cream to try out and eat. I had one almost everyday to the dismay of my stomach. The staff always gave me good choice to try and it was heaven.

Caught them right before closing, but we were not rushed as we tried a couple of flavors first. Very tasty gelato...very rich flavors.

In the Comm Street Food Court; we got there right before closing and then went and sat on the Aqua Bar deck to enjoy the weather. It was decent gelato -- but I guess after you've had gelato in San Marco Square in Venice, everything else comes up a little lacking. It tasted great, wasn't grainy, and had a decent... More

Okay, so this place is awesome. We've been here almost every day this week and can't seem to stay away. It's all delicious and so addicting. If you haven't been, it's a must to explore, you won't be sorry.

Took a vacation last year and had gelato for the first time in Italy and was hooked. I live in NYC where you can find all type of delicious goodness everywhere you look, but not in the gelato section. So 1st time visiting Ptown and the word on the street was to check out I Dream of Gelato. It was... More

The gelato was delicious. Service was pleasant and we ate on a bench overlooking the harbor just beyond.
