“Better and lighter than ice cream!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Perfect for how hot Florida is, the frozen ice is good lots of flavors to choose from and its inexpensive, the gelati is good when I want something rich and creamy plus you can mix anything

“Gelati Joe's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

It is called Gelati Joe's.
You know a Gelati place is good when, in the middle of a cold winter day in FL (40 degrees), there is a line outside. Give it a shot. My favorite is orange Gelati with vanilla ice cream.

“Ah, Go Ahead - Treat yourself. You Deserve It.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

No matter where in Lakeland you choose to dine - pass on desert.
Save room to stop at Gelati Je's on the way home for a FUN desert, that's much different than the average frozen concoction of Ice Milk and frozen talcum powder.
THIS IS GOOD STUFF!!!!
Remember old fashioned Creamsicles?
Pick a flavor.
Outdoor, open seating, but well covered in case of rain (in Florida????)
You'll be back.
Often.

“great break from the usual ice cream places”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

Fun, outdoor, gelatin, sorbets, and lots of combinations. Simple menu. Great for desserts or just a treat... outdoor seating, works even in the rain due to the full coverage...

BTW... name is Gelati Joe's
