Have had meals, gelato and coffee drinks here. They are all great! The toasted marshmallow mocha is my favorite!

This is my favorite lunch spot in Knoxville! Beams me right back to Italy every time I order. Aside from delicious gelato, of course, the panini, salad, and soup selections are YUM! And there are dozens of macaroons to choose from...a sweet surprise to the first time visitor. I highly recommend.

While the cups look small, they overflow them with gelato. I got the large the first time and didn't even finish half! Now I usually get the small with 2 flavors and it's more than enough; plus you save some money!

The fruit gelato is incredible! I got peach and raspberry, but was really blown away by the peach flavor. DANG SON. They had a tiramisu flavor that was basically gone when I got there, so I imagine that's probably REALLY good too!

Thisis my kids and I favorite place in downtown to get a gelato. The price is pricey but what a treat! There are different flavors of gelatos which sometimes gets changed around each month. I like how I am able to sample a flavor before deciding what I want to eat. The staff are friendly, helpful and always have a... More

Coolato is always a great dessert choice. We've been going every month or so since they opened. I love that they cycle their gelato and sorbetto selections so often - there's always something new to try. The staff is always nice, the building is always clean, and we love their back porch. The Azteca is my absolute favorite flavor! If... More

Stopped in for the lunch special which was just the right amount of food. Roast beef Panini and side salad and fruit were delicious. The lunch meal also came with a sliver of gelato cake. I was slightly irritated that they brought me the wrong flavor as I do not like chocolate. It was gladly replaced, but when I asked... More

My favorite gelato ... Reminds me of Europe. Too small, too busy, and just great! It always leaves me wanting more...especially on a hot day, but fortunately for me, they also make gelato cakes that you can take home! I would come here year round if I lived here year round.

You can ask for a taste before you decide. I had mango and pineapple sorbet. It was yummy. There a chairs and tables outside and inside. The gelato also looked really good. Definitely need to come back and try more.
