Absolutely delicious!

We asked the waiter in the restaurant to recommend a dessert place. He didn't even have to think, just said you must go to Morano Gelato. He was so correct. It was the best Gelato that I ever had. They had at least 20 different flavors, and a sign stating that the gelato was made fresh every... read more

Took family from Colorado for dessert. The posted menu looked sumptuous. Actual availability was very minimal because the most popular flavors were not in cooler. Disappointing. However, the gelato was excellent. Too bad there was no chocolate for example, or delicious raspberry. Just some unusual flavors. Wish it were as advertised, so we spent less than we would have.

The gelato was very good. We had passion fruit and cherry and both were really good the only reason. Not to give 5 stars is they only had a few flavored when we got there at 7pm. The staff was nice and explained that had more then the usual amount of business that day and they ran out of all... More

This is the best gelato I have ever had! There are always a variety of flavors to choose from -- typical flavors like milk chocolate and exotic flavors like rose. A certain number of flavors is made everyday, while other flavors change day-to-day (and season-to-season). One thing it would be nice to see is more seating. It can be difficult... More

Morano Gelato is quite simply my favorite thing in the upper valley. On a recent trip to Italy, we sampled gelato in every city we visited and did not find any that was as good as Morano!

I was team Morano since the beginning-- when they were selling out of tiny recreational coolers at the farmer's market! They were tremendous back then, and they've kept that quality through and through. I'm always game for a scoop of gelato after a dinner out. However there is one minor setback to Morano: their indoor seating could use some help.... More

Had this after lunch at Molly's. Absolutely delicious and loved the unusual variety of flavors. Tasted fresh and the staff were very friendly.

The gelato is wonderful. Flavorful and satisfying. It was so good we went back the next day for seconds. People routinely stand in line to get a cup of gelato and it is no wonder. A must try if you are traveling to Hanover.

This shop in the heart in Hanover, NH is within walking distance to everything the town has to offer and is a perfect way to make any day better. The product is made in-house each morning with rotating flavors that use fresh products including Mcnamara dairy milk and berries from Upper Valley farms. It is really some of the best... More
