Best gelato in Tucson

We love the gelato here. It is by far the best. The flavors are unique and change periodically so you can always find something you will enjoy.

Great gelato in diverse flavors is what you'll find. And if you have children, the coolest rotary gelato bin that kids will love. I have never had any gelato here that I didn't find to have first-rate flavor and texture. This place is a gem, somewhat hidden away in the Sam Hughes complex at Campbell and 6th.

This Gelato is the real thing. We like Frost, which is the local favorite because it has several locations, but Allegro, in its one spot near the University, is superior. The flavors are intense, lots of choices, and a much more generous serving size. The "small" here is comparable to the medium at Frost. The proprietor is Italian and the... More

Fantastic, authentic gelato in a mind boggling variety of flavors. They have common flavor like chocolate and vanilla and many not so common flavors like basil and saffron. Their gelato is served at a consistency of semi-frozen cream, just like in Italy. These people know their gelato!

Allegro's natural ingredients make for some very creative flavors. I've never been disappointed. It's always fun to first sample some of the unique creations. One time I had carrot and ginger. It was a flavorful balance that was very pleasing. I love their unusual flavors. Tonight, I had their pumpkin - OMG! It was simply delicious. The flavor lingered for... More

Great gelato near UA Campus. Have about 2 dozen flavors to choose from. I had Nutella -- my friend had Vanilla. Both were awesome and come with a cookie. We will be back again!

Tucson is fortunate to have several good places for gelato. However, Allegro is definitely the best. It is always fresh and full of flavor. They also have numerous unique flavors such as pineapple basil which is the wife's favorite. Only real complaint is that the parking is not the most convenient as you have to park in an adjacent lot... More

Allegro has updated their looks with a fresh new appearance inside and outside. The renovations are a dramatic improvement and have added lots of indoor and outdoor seating. The gelatos are still as good as ever. They have also added a new assortment of products like a delicious home made choco-vanilla special ice cream sandwich called Biscotto Felix for just... More

We just returned from Italy, where we had delicious gelato several times, and we found Allegro to be just as good, if not better, than some we had had in Florence. Allegro has a great variety of imaginative favors, along with the standards. It is displayed beautifully in a sort of giant lazy Susan under glass! Cinnamon and chocolate were... More

By the moment, me and my family just tried the ice creams and we loved them. Next time I'd like to try the gelatos and stuff..
