This is a wonderful spot for an after-movie ice cream or otherwise. Gelato is far superior to ice cream (ok maybe not B&J's but it's different...) and we love Morano. Our kids keep begging to go back over and over again. Definitely go.

If you love gelato, you must have Morano. I loved the selection of flavors and really enjoyed a scoop of their chocolate hazelnut (think: Nutella ice cream). It was cold and snowy outside when we went, but that didn't stop us! Plus, it's a great location right in the heart of downtown Hanover.

If you want to have a very delicious treat, stop by and indulge in a Gelato. Close your eyes, savor the taste and pretend you're back in Italy on a warm summer day.

This place is well worth a long trip out of your way. I'm not sure that I would call it the best gelato I have eaten, but it far surpassed many gelatos that I have eaten in Italy over my trips there. You might get a better product in San Gimigiano (Dondoli) or Rome (Giolitti), but this is an extremely... More

This place is really incredible. It's spotless for one. The seating is well done, and there's outdoor during the warmer months. but the highlight of course is the gelato. The flavors are really diverse, the texture oh so smooth and the flavors uber fresh. The fruit flavors truly burst. You don't need a lot- get a large with multiple flavors... More

We got hooked on gelato during a trip to Tuscany several years ago. Since then we have been back to Italy two more times and we've sought out the best gelato in every town we visit (in general, northern Italy does not have very good gelato!). Based on our experience in searching out the best Italian gelato, Morano Gelato is... More

Went because of word of mouth. Husband and son loved theirs. I needed gluten free which only a few flavors were. Surprised that the fruit flavors had a small amount of gluten. They make it fresh daily so some flavors were sold out when we visited in the evening. I found it very good but cannot compare with gelato found... More

Local, fresh ingredients, some regular, always there, flavors, along with changing options. Generous with the tastings if you have a hard time making up your mind. Even with tasting, still can be hard to choose. Oh, and that delicious, THICK hot chocolate they have in the colder months...also, yummy (and very rich). Be prepared for lines out the door when...

The gelato doesn't get any better than it is at Morano Gelato. You can taste the freshness of the gelato, which they hand prepare every day. The flavor selection is massive, with about 20 different flanked, however, depending on the day, they may have different flavors. If you can, I would suggest getting either the Carmel, the hazelnut, or the... More

Purely in the interests of scientific inquiry, we tried out Morano Gelato, and came back, and came back with friends. Each of us, each time delighted in our flavor choices.
