Forget about antibiotics, or classical art, or the internet, this gelato may be the quintessence of human skill. It has a gentle balance of flavor and texture that cannot be described well in words. The flavor choices are diverse and exciting. The portions are nice, and the value is superb. This place serves the best dessert I have ever had.... More

Fun place to go with friends. Reasonably priced beautiful and delicious gelato. They also have coffee. It's right next to Dartmouth so it's great if you're visiting!it's right on mainstreet with a bunch of other shops like bookstores and bakeries. I recommend the coconut cream. YUM!!

Although ranked as the top restaurant in Hanover, this is a dessert place with gelato. I can easily see how it would beat any restaurant though, if such a comparison were possible. This is pretty much the best gelato I've ever had! I made a cup with the dark chocolate, hazelnut, and espresso. Wow!!! Anytime my girlfriend and I are... More

Being a gelato freak and seeing a sign will make us stop in our tracks. I had hazel nut, Torrone , and English pudding all in one cup. My husband had his standard pistashio.All very good. We like that they are not to sweet. We did hit one hiccup when a boy leaned on the counter and knocked over the... More

A gelato heaven on par with the best gelato I've had. A "gotta go" place. Open at very convenient hours.

Fabulous gelato!!! The gelato is made on site and the flavors are wonderful. Morano Gelato quickly became a favorite in Hanover, expanding quickly and capturing a following.

Dartmouth graduation weekend so the lines were long but Morano had planned ahead and there were quite a few flavors left even at 9pm! Besides Italy I have not had as good gelato anywhere. Even though there was no lemon or ruby grapefruit (favorites) my pistachio was awesome! Lemon Basil interesting - more of a sorbet. Dark chocolate overwhelming chocolate... More

Summer in Hanover, NH has taken on a whole new feel since Morano Gelato expanded their space. On a warm, delightful evening you can count on meeting a host of interesting people in the line waiting to taste and decide which of the luscious flavors of gelato they will order. We aren't talking about an ice cream experience - this... More

I can't imagine that Gelato anywhere could be better than this. Creamy and rich and wonderful variety. A plus is it's near the movie theater and convenient to shopping. Plenty of seating and wonderful service.
