Description: Pitango Gelato creates authentic gelato focusing on classic Italian flavors rather than novelties or trends. Made with grass-fed organic milk and fresh organic fruit and nuts, our products contain no flavorings, no colorings, nor artificial ingredients of any kind. Pitango also takes its coffee very seriously. We use organic, single-estate beans roasted especially for us in small batches by a local boutique roaster.

“Delicious and addictive!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We discovered Pitango when we first moved to the area 18 months ago. The flavor is outstanding and I love that the ingredients are local and/or organic. The coffee is sensational also. In 18 months of coming here we have never been disappointed.

“Good stuff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Was in Italy a few months ago, and this gelato was as good as any had there as well any place here. Would place it among the top gelato finds. Stracciatella was great.

“Very Good Gelato”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Lots of flavors. I chose two Hazelnut chocolate and pistacchio. Both were creamy and full of flavor. Yes I would recommend going there.

“Cute and Authentic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Not only was the gelato absolutely delicious, but this place had catchy infographics on the ingredients they use and how menu items are made. The server was knowledgeable in coffee-making methods, and I enjoyed an espresso with sipping chocolate. Average price for a great place!!

“Great gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I've been here a few times and really enjoy their gelato. At first, the portions don't look too big, but the flavors are so good and rich that the portions end up being perfect. It's a little pricy, but with the quality of the gelato I think it's worth it.

In the summer, there isn't a lot of seating inside the restaurant, but there is a lot of outdoor space. Long lines are common in the summer, but they move quickly!
