Pitango lies in the heart of DC, a small ice cream/cofffee joint which is a very popular go-to place for locals. It offers classic Italian ice cream made of organic ingredients, and the flavors are nothing fancy, about 20 varieties which are rotated regularly. There's always a queue, which is a good sign...people love it! The customers stand outside while enjoying their treat, although there are a few stools inside. I tried the Guianduja which is a chocolate hazelnut flavor, Affogato style. That is, a double shot of espresso with a scoop of gelato smack dab in the center. Every scoop/sip was enjoyable till the last drop. I almost went back at the end of the line to get more!!! But, I had to restrain myself. This will definitely be a DC "tradition" for me.
