We chose this place because of the reviews and were very dissapointed. They sell mostly ice cream. The gelato section was tiny. The "small size" gelato is like a shot of gelato for $3.50. There was nothing impressive about the taste of the gelato. We've had gelato in Rome and this isn't even close.

After wondering around Providence a few of us stopped into Dolce Gelateria we were impressed with the selection and the flavor of the food. Service was a bit sluggish but overall I rate this place a solid 8.

Wickenden Street is a happening place and this Gelateria is a welcome addition to the restaurants, coffee shops and stores on the street. The owners John and Debbi are... More

This new gelato/ice cream place on Wickenden in Providence is a real find. You won't believe the different flavors...I had a Basil and Mascarpone gelato and it was so unbelievably delicious. I can't remember the many other flavors, but we got to taste a few before deciding and they were all amazing -- home made, rich, delicious. Plus the people... More
