I got into some great gelato while in Italy. I really like flavors with genuine flavor, coconut, lemon, coffee and above all chocolate. I had the two later flavors. Great!! Authentic, fresh.

We tried this place after having frost. Very good gelato and I'd reccomend. But I have to say frost is just a step above!

My friend took me there to meet her friends and I absolutely loved their gelato! I got different flavors and all really good! The store is small and full of people. Popular!! :)

Doesn't even come close to comparing with Frost. The flavors are nowhere near as delicious, and service was sub par.

Dear Andrew, I want to apologize for your less than perfect experience regarding the service that you received with us. Since I am making the gelato in another kind of philosophy I am aware that some people could not like it. Thanks anyway for your honest point of view but I hope you could give us another chance or at... More

Rotating freezers. Unique flavors. Creamy, melt on your tongue texture. We tried the coffee, chocolate mint, and cream custard flavors. It is worth the trip to find it, located near the University of Arizona in a lively, interesting neighborhood. Stop by, and you won't be sorry. Absolutely wonderful gelato.

I wish I could go back and try everything! They have both gelato and sorbet, and you can get a combination even in a "small" cup, which is a very generous size. Be sure to try the orange cardamom! (They will give tastes, so you can sample before deciding.)

What a great, small place- gelato experts! The owner even went to Italy to learn the craft from the masters! A multitude of flavors, and they give samples! Peppermint is divine; I had the lemon and it was bursting with freshness and flavor! Thanks Allegro il Gelato Naturale for a great gelato and wonderful dessert experience! I loved the mini... More

I lived in Italy for a number of years, and this is hands-down the best gelato I have had anywhere in the US. It is truly fabulous. The fruit flavors are great; the cream flavors are great. I like it better than GROM! My special votes go to: lemon, pistachio, chocolate, vanilla, salted caramel, basil pineapple, I could go on... More
