Yes, it is the best gelato place ever! The staff is a bit peculiar, but you can tell they love what they serve and are very proud to do so. I enjoyed both visits and all four flavors. If only we had been in town for one more day… Closed on Wednesdays – so plan accordingly.

The best ice cream I have eaten outside Italy. The owners went to Bologna to learn how to make true gelato. Find it down a side street off Main Street (side street next to a bull themed restaurant).

My wife and I looked for the place having read the positive reviews,
Hard to find, look for the giant ice Cretan cone down the street next to the JFK museum on Main Street
Meet the owners who made their recommendation and we savoured, yummy, excellent gelato, recommended, very good.

I just walked three miles to get another hit of the Clove flavor gelato. It's changed my life. They said they made it as an experiment. Do yourself a favor and try the flavor.

Tastes like chai tea but better

Wow! It's kind of amazing that in a tourist town of 100+ restaurants that a little gelato establishment in a tiny house that's not even on Main Street could be rated as the #1 eatery. But, our visit confirmed everyone else's opinion.

Cafe Gelato Bertini is run by a senior couple who found themselves out of work during the upgrade to the digital age. So, they asked themselves what they wanted to do for their 2nd careers. They decided to learn all they could about the art of making great gelato. The couple travelled to Italy and learned from a multi-generational family who were the premier gelato makers in Europe.

The quality this couple produce in their gelato in Hyannis can easily rival the best in Italy or anywhere else in Europe...and the husband & wife team (with no employees) are as sweet as their gelato.

Don't miss your chance to seek this little gem out while you're visiting. It's just a couple hundred feet off Main Street. I guarantee you won't find a better, more satisfying gelato experience anywhere.
