If you can't get to Italy...

Cold Spoons is my favorite spot for gelato in the Milwaukee metro area. The portions are generous, and the flavors are fresh, authentic and numerous--always plenty to choose from, and they are hard choices, too!

The service was really good, we were offered many cheerful tastes before we settled in on some truly yummy selections. My only disappointment was there was nothing chocolate on the menu when we went!

We were both very pleasantly surprised. It tasted like being in Italy. As soon as we saw the pistachio gelato, and saw it was tan instead of neon green, we knew we were in the right place. We loved the rich, authentic taste of both the pistachio and the roasted almond, which we got to go. We had half lemon... More

This place has great gelato. Everyone loves theirs and so did I. This is a great alternative to ice cream and they have a wide variety of flavors.

My family loves going to Cold Spoons!! If you have a dairy issue, the sorbeto is a must... if you like to indulge, the gelato flavors are unbelievable! Tuesdays are a great day for a bargain!

We stopped here during a Milwaukee Pizza Bus Tour. It was the perfect ending to our pizza-tasting escapade. The gelato servings are generous and the flavors are amazing. We were told all flavors are handmade - no goos or artificial flavors. My favorite was the almond, but I also enjoyed the caramel.

The hand made gelato reminds us of our travels throughout Italy! AWESOME!! We backpacked from Rome through Venice with a few stops (via local train) between and LOVE the gelato at Cold Spoons as much as at any place in Italy!

This is FANTASTIC gelato that mirrors gelato available throughout Itally! The owners / operators greet you with a smile and choose to both work & live in the area. they have state of the art displays / coolers and a cool modern vibe throughout. The gelato is so authentic (good) that its served at all the Bartolotta Restaurants. ENJOY!!!

In my book, hard to beat a good dish of gelato. Cold Spoons has a decent variety of flavors to pick from. Even better, the young lady who helped us was super friendly, even tough we slipped in just shy of closing time. We'll definitely be back.

Cold Spoons...how do I love thee? Let me count the ways! 1. Your staff is always an adorably friendly mix of highscool aged kids...GOOD kids, too. Polite, patient, smiley. Major plus. 2. Cleanliness. The Gelato parlor has always been spotless, including the beautiful Italian gelato cases! 3. Design asthetic. Great use of colors and simplicity make for a really cool... More
