Beat in Tucson

Most like gelato in Italy, made by an Italian gelato maker. Lots of flavors, smooth and rich, supposedly low calorie and low fat, but so delicious it's hard to believe!

We've been in Tucson twice now, both times for 3 or 4 days. We've gone almost every night to enjoy a gelato. The choices are amazing. We'd have to go every night for weeks to try all the flavors. There is nothing like this where we live and maybe that's good, it makes it all that much more special. Great... More

Frost Gelato is the best dessert to happen to Tucson. It is a guilt free pleasure for the whole family. There are so many different varieties and you can taste them all! I am stuck right now on the cheesecake gelato. Just can't get enough. You can put 2 flavors in one bowl for the medium and large sizes. I... More

What a delightful treat. They have about 50 flavors or so, all made fresh on site daily. My favorite is Limoncello. You can taste as many samples as you want before you order. Be prepared for a wait on weekend nights, this Frost's is pricey, but worth it.

So many flavor so to choose from. My favorite is pistachio so I had that and some caramel macchiato. Oh my gosh! Best I've had since Italy. I'll be back soon and if you haven't been, you need to go!

Do not waste time reading this review. Just go to Frost Gelato.  Great selection of gelatos and sorbets, pleasant atmosphere and good service.  The hazelnut gelato is amazing.  So are many of the others. Make your sweet tooth happy.

Cool Gelato and nice that you can order more than one flavor . However it's not amazing as all the reviews claim. I had the cappuccino and coconut. Coconut was not the best. Cappuccino was better. My daughter had the lemon, WAY too sour! She's 11 and she couldn't even eat it. I think the presentation is better than the... More

Started by local guys, this is a wonderful ice cream parlor. We have been to the one in the La Encantada Center at Campbell and Skyline many times (not just once!). Great variety of flavors, and I've never been disappointed. If you have room left after eating at one of the several great restaurants nearby, go to Frost for dessert!... More

Best Frost Gelato in Tucson! A perfect substitute for Ice cream. For the health conscious, this is perfect for you not to mention their wide variety of flavors. The Dark chocolate and Pistacchio flavors are perfect. I will probably be a regular customer. You can try samples first if you're still not sure of the taste. A little pricey but... More

Can not get enough gelato from Frost! There are so many different flavours you will be able to find one you like. You can taste a variety of flavours before making your decision. The servers are friendly. We will be back many more times.
