Sooooo good! The lady spoke great english and served us some of the best gelato I have ever tasted. A little hard to find for the unexpirienced but well worth the search. Prices were not bad as well. Very clean and bright!

We have been eating gelato in different places for three days now. This place is the best. We had 9 flavors and they were all excellent. Unique flavors like violet and Rosemary were fantastic but the standards, like chocolate were also outstanding

The owner is so very nice even with limited english. The gelato is just awesome. I should qualify I have only tried gelato in northern Italy but I have sampled a lot and this tops them all.

We stopped in per trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We were given a few tastes- which yielded is both trying new flavors. The chocolate fondant is award winning and was very rich but amazing. The mint chocolate chip was so refreshing. Prices were also competitive, so go find this gelato store!
