They have at least a dozen varieties of gelato, all delicious. I sampled several. The gelato is made there on site. It's a little too icy, needs a bit more cream, not as good as in Italy but still good. A small cup/cone is $3.95...More

Delicious Gelato and cannoli’s! The serving sizes are good. We got smalls and that was just enough. Bubble gum flavor reminded me of childhood.

Great place to cool down with an adult float. My daughter had the Guinness and chocolate gelato float. I had the rum crunch and sea salt caramel gelato. What a way to end the afternoon!

Besides the location, which is just a great time, the gelato is simply the best! May I recommend the rum crunch? I have enjoyed gelato in several countries- including Italy- and this was seriously the yummiest flavor and consistency I’ve ever tasted! Salute!
