This was a great little spot to grab a cup of gelato and the service was excellent, the service in some other shoppes has not been very good. They also have wine and lunch/ light dinner fare. We will be going back.

This pace was awesome. Great gifts, wine, gluten free beers. Lots of homemade baked goods and handmade Italian style gelato, definitely earns the name "sweet duck". I tried the Carribean brisket " meat pie". Amazing, lots of love went into making it and you could taste it. I had a good long chat with the owner, who cooked it for... More

Husband loved cannoli! Said best he ever had. We had gelato and it was delicious. So many homemade sweets to choose from! We all enjoyed visiting with the owner very much as well! Yum!

We went 3 times over the course if the week, once in the morning, once in midmorning and another time early afternoon, they were never open! We even called to make sure they'd be open but then when we got there they were closed! Another couple was there and very disappointed too! Maybe next time.

I am so sorry that we were not there so you could enjoy our goodies. We had a family issue and had to go out of town, and our employee came down sick and could not open. Our seasonal help is not here yet and we had no one to mind the store. If I was there I would have... More

Every time I come here, I get the Donatella gelato - a hazelnut chocolate flavor. The staff was friendly and very patient with my boyfriend who wanted to try about five different flavors before finally deciding. Delicious! We will be back next year!

We stopped in here to check out the offerings, as they have an extensive menu of coffee drinks. They also had some lovely looking chocolates. They offer Nathan's Hot Dogs (The Best), among other things, but the Fresh Stuffed Cannoli's took our eye. Excellent!

Pricey at $3.50 for a small cup, but very good! I likes the Donatella, mint chip & the lemoncillo was the best!

The gelato and sorbets are flavorful and creamy. It's made on the premises with fresh ingredients. I had the Limoncello sorbetto and it was great. Mom couldn't decide between two flavors of gelato, so the owner let her sample both and she decided to go half and half with the two flavors. This shopping mall is a fun place to... More
