“Yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

Fantastic gelato - I had banana, and it tasted great (not artificial or anything of the sort). Little pricey, but very tasty.

“As Delicious as in Italy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

I have been to Italy, and certainly had my fair share of gelato while visiting. This was the first gelato that I had while in the States that compared to what I had in Rome and Florence. Our party had the vanilla/choc chip, watermelon and triple berry gelato. All were shared and were delicious. Would highly recommend to those looking for a cool treat on a hot day... Will definitely be going back!

“Fantasic Grapefruit Sorbetto - just like ITALY!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

This was the best Grapefruit Sorbetto I have had since I visited Italy.
I had a scoop of the grapefruit and then pineapple, but the pineapple tasted more creamy and like a gelato (made w/dairy).

But you can taste any kind you want to try...but the fruity flavors are typically the best sorbetto...I will be back to try the sour apple, as that was fantastic when in Italy...but I'll be sure to also get another scoop of the Grapefruit as well....
