“Excellent every time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I stop here at least once every trip to New Orleans, and Brocato never fails! This time was gelato and a cannoli with pistachio to go. Both were outstanding!

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is a great spot a short drive from the French Quarter. Conviniently located on the trolley line, the shop offers delicious gelato, pastries, cookies, coffe, etc. There tends to be a line, but don't let that deter you - it's worth it.

“Authentic Italian cookies, ice, gelato and more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Go for the lemon ice!! And the wonderful italian pastries and cookies. Gelato too. A real local place located in Mid City near Canal and City Park. Brocato's is perfect for after dinner and is an authentic, local spot.

“Bafflingly great gelato.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

A local business owner, who has also spent time in Italy, and has also eaten much Italian gelato, told me Brocato's gelato was better than most of the gelato he'd had in Italy, and on par with the very best he's ever had. I was skeptical, to say the least.

I was wrong to doubt him.

“Mmmm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

I too have travelled to Italy and this is as good if not better. A must stop! We had salted caramel which was a special flavor.
