I have no idea why this chain is so highly rated. The scoops are tiny and overpriced, and the flavors are mediocre and inconsistent in texture. People who have written here comparing it to gelato in Italy obviously had pretty sad gelato experiences in in Italy (and missed the best gelato place ever in Rome, where the cost was half this place, the flavors much richer and more interesting, and the scoops twice the size). This chain is not one I'd return to. Might as well just grab a drumstick popsicle on the street corner.

I was desapointed about the quality of the flavor... May be I'm a bit fussy, but I know what I like in a good Ice cream and this one did't impress me! Too bad!
