I have had gelato in Italy and a number of other countries, but this is the very best. Very authentic, of course because the owner is Italian from Italy, an artisan and as nice as can be. There is a large variety of flavors and making a decision is so difficult, each tastes just like it's description. The texture is perfect, true gelato.

The gelato is delicious, flavorful and creamy in texture. They have a good selection of gelato and sorbet flavors. I choose the small size with chocolate-nutella and coffee- chocolate chip. Both flavors were delicious and flavorful. I liked the two flavor combinations. In addition to serving gelato they also make custom coffee drinks. There is inside and outdoor seating. I look forward to returning for more gelato.

I love this little shop! The gelato is always delicious and fresh and the owner is usually present. The chocolate is rich and bittersweet; it always satisfies my craving. My husband and I usually stroll down to Gelatissimo after having dinner up on Elm Street. It's the perfect way to end a meal on a mild spring evening.

Always a great and seasonal selection of gelato. Staff is very helpful and patient even with small children and picky adults. Pricey but worth a splurge.
