Reviewed July 25, 2013

Ends down the best Gelato & Cafe'. I travel around the country for work all the time and the craving for freshly Homemade Gelato is always there. Tried many place, but haven't found a place as good as Sonny's. Great food, friendly staff and family straight from Italy...enough said!

“Great everything!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Service with a smile and you feel like part of the family at Sonny's. Gelato is fresh and delicious! Great meeting place with outdoor seating. It has become a landmark in Boca Raton. I love the atmosphere and it seems that many people that go speak Italian and meet with friends and family. People play Italian card games and it is a lively place. The coffees are wonderful too. You can't beat Sonny's.

“Can't stay away!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

I visit Boca about 4 times a year and since finding it a couple of years ago I make it a point to visit nightly while visiting family. I have sampled many of the flavors and do have my own favorites, servers will happily give samples to help narrow down your choice! I also enjoy their Panini sandwiches, all are delicious. I enjoy the laid back, friendly atmosphere sitting outside in their courtyard seeing groups come and go and also using the convenient drive thru window. I look forward to visiting again.

“Great servers, average gelato”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Stopped into this small shop for a post-dinner treat. The two young men behind the counter were tons of fun and gave us tastes from the two long cases of gelato flavors in order to help us make our selection. We have been to Italy a few times and had gelato in just about every town we visited, and this really did not compare! Their gelato lacked the creaminess and intense flavor of gelato in Italy, however this is Boca so we give them a break!

There were cases of beautiful looking pastries and they serve food. We only tried the gelato. Better than Carvel, Baskin Robbins and frozen yogurts so we were satisfied.

They have some seating in front if the shop if you want to eat it there outside, and they have a takeout drive up window.

“Home made excellence..”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

This was an every other day stop on our recent vacation. The choices are considerable and the decisions take forever BUT isn't that the way it should be in a gelato store?
