Before going to Belgian Gelato, I had only tried gelato a handful of times. I never really found it to be very different from ice cream UNTIL I had this gelato. It is so rich, creamy, and absolutely decadent. They make their gelato fresh every day, and you can tell. I was able to meet one of the owners, and... More

We went here 2 out of 4 evenings after dinner. We would have gone more but felt we needed to try out some other places for dessert. We also had coffee here. Highly recommend! Close to the park so you can eat while watching the harbor and listen to the fountains.

Thank you for validating us - Belgians can make great gelato! For those who say gelato is not Belgian they are right it is traditionally Italian. Homemade Italian gelato inspired by Belgian Chocolate flavors that is how we roll at Belgian Gelato. More

We had been ruined by gelato in the market in NYC but this was right there in flavor and smoothness. Very good! Now to find the next great gelato.

If you're a gelato fan, it's worth a visit. We had the Chocolate Extreme and it cost us $10, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do! LOL It was very good and we're glad we passed up the regular ice cream parlor and even Ben and Jerry's just to have 15 minutes of pure pleasure.
