“a nice finish after a meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Delicious gelato, creamy or icy what ever you choose. A large variety of flavors,only wish prices were a little better. The chocolate chip is out of this world.

“Nice Afternoon Break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice spot for an afternoon break or evening desert. We had 4 flavors and all were bursting with flavor. We are looking forward to returning soon. Pleasant staff and fair serving sizes and price.

“Good for not being Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We had a nice afternoon break at this gel atresia. It was good. Fair sized servings for the price. They tried to capture the feel of Italy a little with pictures and using the metric system for serving sizes and using Italian to define the portions. Although in all of their signs the had litre mis-spelled at liter.....I guess they tried.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

This gelateria is on the main street and I tried it after visiting the Haagen-Dazs franchise across the street.

It offers a choice of gelato and sorbets, I had the gelato which was absolutely superb and less expensive than the franchise.

“Smooth and tasty! Delicious.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

Stopped by last night. Will be back again to try more flavors. The gelato was fresh, smooth, creamy, and had good rich flavor. I loved that they let me have 1/2 and 1/2 on the small size! Prices are comparable or less than what I've paid in Houston, Miami, and NY. $3.75 for small; inexpensive when compared to big chain ice cream shops like marble slab.
