Neighborhood: Logan Circle/ Shaw
Description: Pitango Gelato creates authentic gelato focusing on classic Italian flavors rather than novelties or trends. Made with grass-fed organic milk from a single-herd farm and fresh organic fruit and nuts, our products contain no flavorings, no colorings, nor artificial ingredients of any kind. We also our coffee very seriously. It is made with organic, single-estate beans roasted especially for us in small batches by a local boutique roaster. We use a traditional espresso machine that requires some fussing and banging but delivers a perfect shot every time. And we make our cappuccino with organic grass-fed milk, steamed for every individual order.

“Hands down the best gelato!”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Excellent gelato in DC!! Must try the chocolate noir (dark chocolate at its best) as well as the stracciatella! Can mix more than 1 flavor per serving. Coffee and tea are available as well. Absolutely loved it!

“Best Gelato Anywhere”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

I've had gelato all over the country, and this was by far the best. The chocolate chocolate chip and chocolate noir will make you forget you ever had gelato anywhere else. They make their gelato on site and you will only be disappointed if you don't order enough. It is outstanding.

“Best Gelato I've ever had”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Better than gelato in Italy, but a little pricey...Long line, but goes somewhat quickly. The best flavors we tried: blackberry, pineapple, chocolate noir, vanilla chocolate chip, cantaloupe, passion fruit. All natural ingredients! Free wifi!

“Incredible Gelato”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Don't miss this one if you love gelato. The lemon, tangerine and chocolate are amazing. I think the small is $5-6 but we'll worth it.

“"No pressure...but get two flavors!"”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

This was a nice spot we found during our stay just a few blocks away. We were in Washington during the recent heat wave, so we gladly walked a few blocks in the evening for a little cool down through Gelato. They had great unusual flavors such as Spicy Chocolate and Cardamon Crema. The employees offered great service. When you order one flavor they like to tell you, "no pressure, but everyone usually gets two flavors." You didn't have to ask us twice. The next night we were already regulars and ordered two flavors right away.
