“Just not equal to the raves...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

This place gets some lofty praise, but the gelato just doesn't impress me. It's fine enough, and some flavors might be better than others, but we left disappointed. We would recommend at least two other places over this.



In many ways, this is a successfully marketed gelateria with a good story, but the story is better than the end results.

“Great Place with Great Owner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

I really appreciated that owner was very passionate about his ice creams and was able to make suggestions on what's suitable for vegetarians, eggless etc.
