“The authentic flavor of Italy”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We stopped with no high expectations at Frati Gelato for a quick bite, and with our surprise we discovered a gorgeous panini-and-gelato maker. The quality of products is great, as well as the service offered by the owner, with his charming presence. Definitely a little jewel in Napa, CA. Stop by and you won't regret.

“Fabulous gelato not to be missed”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We stopped in for gelato after dinner at Angele. It is amazing and so delicious - so like the gelato you get in Italy. Plus the people there are very friendly and helpful. Defintely skip dessert in the restaurant and go here for gelato if you love Italaian gelato.

“Worth the Price”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Worth the price. I went twice a day for 3 straight days. Can't really find good Gelato in Napa (go figure) but this was a lot better than I thought was was going to be

“Gelato Cafe....missing the Gelato!!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

My Husband loves Gelato so we asked the hotel staff for the best place to go in Napa. We arrived Sunday of Labor Day Weekend around 6:30pm and the majority of gelato trays were empty. There were just a couple of flavors left and they didn't close for another 3 hours. We asked if they had any other flavors and they said yes, but they couldn't put them out until these were all gone...really?? It's just crazy to me that they would leave trays empty on a busy holiday weekend!!
