Home Made Gelato

The first time I had gelato it was in the Piazza St. Marco in Venice. I have been passionate about the frozen dessert ever since. Finding a place here in my new home town that makes the best is a real blessing. Try the lemon basil if they have it. The pistachio sweeps me immediately back to Italy... read more

Ciska's gelato is nothing short of amazing. Given a choice of dessert at a restaurant or at Cafe Gelato, Cafe Gelato wins every time. Great flavors: Butterscotch was incredible last night. Something unique every visit. If you want something special: ask. They'll text when they make it.

The gelatos are great with a few unique and delicious flavors along with some tasty standards. The atmosphere is charming, warm and fun.

Super service and the best gelato in town. I had the Pineapple with the coconut and it was amazing. I can really recommend this place, it is a cute little café with nice and helpful employees. So wait no longer and get the best there is near you!

I've had gelato in Florence, Rome, Venice, and Budva in Montenegro but I like Cafe Gelato the best. Homemade, delicious, creamy, tons of flavor, etc. It's truly unbelievable we have this gem in this city! And the owner is a wonderful, wonderful woman. Sweet and easy to talk. She even let me off when I forgot my money, and I... More

My husband and I stopped here to try the gelato. It was very good. The texture was smooth and the flavor was rich. I was pleasantly surprised.

Some of the best, and most creative gelato this side of Rome. Always a nice selection of flavors and now other options too. Coffee, tea and more. You can ask for a text when she makes your favorite flavor!

Located in a very nice part of Winston Salem. Not too crowded with several cool shops around. The gelato was some of the best I have tasted. It was very smooth textured and full of flavor.

This little quant place maybe a little hard to find for someone from our of town... But it is well worth the hunt! We have traveled all over the world and only find this quality gelato outside the U.S until now. We will be back for the best Gelato around.. Super nice owner too!
