Reviewed April 26, 2013

Delicious gelato, creamy or icy what ever you choose. A large variety of flavors,only wish prices were a little better. The chocolate chip is out of this world.

“Nice Afternoon Break”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice spot for an afternoon break or evening desert. We had 4 flavors and all were bursting with flavor. We are looking forward to returning soon. Pleasant staff and fair serving sizes and price.

“Good for not being Italy”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We had a nice afternoon break at this gel atresia. It was good. Fair sized servings for the price. They tried to capture the feel of Italy a little with pictures and using the metric system for serving sizes and using Italian to define the portions. Although in all of their signs the had litre mis-spelled at liter.....I guess they tried.

“Delicious”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

This gelateria is on the main street and I tried it after visiting the Haagen-Dazs franchise across the street.

It offers a choice of gelato and sorbets, I had the gelato which was absolutely superb and less expensive than the franchise.

“Smooth and tasty! Delicious.”
Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

Stopped by last night. Will be back again to try more flavors. The gelato was fresh, smooth, creamy, and had good rich flavor. I loved that they let me have 1/2 and 1/2 on the small size! Prices are comparable or less than what I've paid in Houston, Miami, and NY. $3.75 for small; inexpensive when compared to big chain ice cream shops like marble slab.
