The gelato was very melted when it was dipped. It tasted like it had thawed and been refrozen and had ice crystals in it. The taste and texture were bad. It’s not anything like real gelato.

Had the mint and pistachio flavors. They are ok, but I'm glad there's local ice cream in thus area aside from DQ

My wife and kids were craving ice cream (gelato), so we took a ride to Dolce Roma to try it out. Service was not the most friendly, the guy seemed annoyed. I can understand that, since we all have bad days, however, to add to...the experience, the “gelato” had more ice than creaminess, (strike two). I ordered stracciatella and to my surprise, it was straight up chocolate chips. Stracciatella is made with tiny chocolate shavings, not chips. Won’t be going back.More

A nice selection to choose from. Opened late tonight so that is a great way to end the day. It is conveniently located on Padrè Boulevard.

Not all the flavors are equal, some have way more flavor than others, so definitely do the taste test of the two they allow. Seemed to have good operations hours even in off season. I loved the mint chocolate.

Went in for gelato, planned to eat it there but there were only a few tables and they were taken. Was ok gelato, and gelato is always sort of expensive. I would not go again.

This is good but not the most creamy Italian gelato I’ve had. My first scoop had way too many nuts in it that overwhelmed the banana flavor of the gelato. My second scoop of mint chocolate chip was good with no aftertaste. Friendly service with...free tastings. Indoor and outdoor seating.More

Nothing like cooling off the summer heat with some iced cream! They have a selection of traditional flavors with a twist and some exotic flavors as well. You can choose from iced creams and gelatos to choose from. It's a cute ice cream shop right...off the main boulevard, right across the street from Black Beards Restaurant. Excellent stop for a dessert after your meal, it has some nice tables outside to enjoy your ice cream up front in the open air.More

My husband, 8 year old son and myself did not like the Italian Ice Cream. I wanted to try the Cookies & Cream but none of the Italian Ice Cream was labeled correctly so I went for a Coffee instead. The service was good, not...great and we sat outside for a bit to finish.More
