“Very popular among locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is a little piece of heaven in mid-city New Orleans for fans of Italian Gelato and pastries. Delicious ice cream, friendly staff, authentic old-world ambience. If you will only go one time, try their Cassata ice-cream. Often crowded in the evenings. You will need to park on the street.

“Fantastic gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

There's nothing I can write that hasn't been written before... absolutely fabulous gelato. We enjoyed lunch in the French Quarter and then jumped on the Canal Street streetcar and took it up to North Carrollton. We hopped off, enjoyed a sweet treat and then headed right back downtown. The whole trip took about 60-90 minutes, but was completely worth it. The streetcars are air conditioned and the gelato was fantastic!! I kept stealing my husband's pistachio flavor!

“Authentic Gelato”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Fun little field trip on the Canal St. car for about 20 minutes, takes you from the FQtr. to A. Brocatos. Once inside, try any of the fine gelatos, pastries, coffee.

“Best cannoli's and gelato outside of Italy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

Recommended by fellow NO Italians and worth the drive! Sicilian pistachio gelato was amazing. They fill the cannoli's to order with both a chocolate and traditional filling. Try a gelatocino - scoop of gelato with espresso!

“One word..."Epic!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Do everything within your power to get here while in NOLA. It is VERY deserving of its #1 rating. You've never tasted gelato until you've been here. The flavors are authentic, and more tasty and rich than any other ice cream I've ever eaten. Not watered down whatsoever. They also have pastries, the coconut macaroons were delightful. I would have made another trip if my schedule wasn't so packed. It doesn't get any better than this. Also great that the people behind the counter are really kind and helpful. It's not often in our current time to come across something that is homemade, genuine and not rushed. You can tell these folks put a lot of pride in what they do and aren't just living off their good reputation. They deserve your hard-earned dollars!
