Let me make this simple: I cannot come within 5 blocks of this place without stopping in. It doesn't matter where I might have just eaten. There is ALWAYS room for gelato. Smooth delectable flavors. I must have the Thai coconut. Then maybe something with chocolate. I'm sure everything is fab. I once gorged myself on 4 large scoops (... More

Yummy Gelato! I haven't been to Italy or had gelato from many places, but this is the best that I've had. We walked in, and the guy behind the counter was just handing us sample after sample. We decided on the peach (with actual bits of peach), red watermelon (tastes just like watermelon!) and fig (which was creamy and just... More

A ten! Rich, deep flavors. Very creamy - creamier than ice cream. Slightly sweet and not overloaded with sugar. Amazing, simple flavors: banana, papaya, chocolate peanut butter, roasted pecan, sweet Amish milk, salted cream. A must try. Some of the best gelato I've ever had. A small is $5.50 (two flavors) and worth every penny.

We always take time to visit CG when in Philly, since it is one of our favorite gelaterias, and that includes multiple visits to Italy. Intense and pure flavors. Particular favorites: cioccolato scuro and Sicilian pistachio.

Excellent pizza and good services. After eating we got several scoops of Gelato. We went back another evening for Gelato and the employee was always helpful with tastings and helping us make a decision.

FABULOUS flavors and the gelato was better than what we got in Italy. We were down near City Hall and made it there several times. Just for a cool scoop and after dinner at one of the several dining areas. It may appear to be pricey but it is worth every penny.

Went here with friends after dinner. Great gelato and the selecctions were quite good. problems were not places to sit and the prices were a tad high, although not outrageous.
