“best gelato in boca”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

I lived in Boca for few years, and gelato here was always good. I did try sandwiches (regular) and espresso coffee (not bad either). However, the best is gelato (in my opinion the best in Boca).

“Will have to go back for the gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

We were supposed to meet friends and family, but they had to back out at the last minute, so it wound up just the two of us for dinner.

Service is excellent. Just the right balance of being well taken care of without over intrusion. I got the sense that every single customer is treated as though they're extremely important. That's so rare. The atmosphere is perfect. You can dress up a little or come in shorts and a tee and you feel right at home either way.

I had the chicken pesto panini and a recommended glass of chianti. She had the Sicilian panini. All was excellent. Pricing is right on the mark.

“Fantastic Gelato!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

What a find! We went twice for gelato and were sorry we couldn't go again! They have a great selection of flavors and are very willing to let you sample as many as you would like. Some of the flavors are unusual, like Spicy Chocolate which has habanero peppers in it (they insist you sample it first)! The blackberry flavor was very strong and tasted like the berries had just been picked--yum!

We have had lots of gelato in many places (including Italy), and Sonny's rates right up with the best of them. And the prices are reasonable--a large cup with 4 scoops, plenty for 2 to share, is $5.25.

Both inside and outdoor seating are available. They also serve lunch and dinner meals, but we weren't there for anything but the gelato. Judging from the crowd in the evening, their meals are good also. On the evening we went, there was an strolling musician in the outdoor area.

Highly recommended!

“Best Gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Looking for some dessert after dinner. Stop in at Sonny's gelato cafe. Many great choices to choose from. You can taste any of the selections before your final choice. Also they have great bakery items & an Expresso bar. The gelato is the best around.
They also have food selections as they are open for lunch and dinner. You can dine inside or outside. Dining outside is a most pleasant experience. Once u try this place you'll be back many times.
