“Best Ice Cream East of the Mississippi”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We ended up going here several times. They opened this beautiful carousel just for us to take rides & pics. The desserts are dreamy, creamy and the service is amazing. We even met the italian owner! What a treat to find this place!

“Yummy Goodness”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Ditto to all of the other great reviews. Flavors are insane, quality is top notch. Great spot for a quick, cold treat on a hot day!

“Incredible ice cream/gelato”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Made fresh daily this is a great place for desert. Enjoy the building it is a wonder unto its self. The only draw back is when there are many kids inside it can be a bit noisy.

“Nice for ice cream cravings”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is a cute little place to satisfy your ice cream cravings. They have many flavors of gelato to chose from. I had the coconut in a waffle cone. My boyfriend had the dark chocolate and coconut in a waffle cone. Both were very yummy. The only downside is the prices.

“Get the milk shake”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

AND your 2$ ticket to ride the carousel
Adults permitted!

Perfect end to a perfectly fun girls day out.

But beware, they close precisely at ten pm. Much to the tragic disappointment of that car of tourists who arrived as we were leaving last night. Sorry folks. But I hope you try again, its worth it.
