We went to Coolato Gelato for dessert after having dinner and seeing a movie just up the block. We have been to Italy several times and are huge gelato fans and I have to say this is the best gelato we have had in the US.
The atmosphere is cozy and fun and there is indoor and outdoor seating with fresh herbs in planters all around the patio and local musicians playing on Saturday night. The owner came out and talked to us and told us how he and his wife had gone to Italy to learn how to make gelato and buy all of their equipment. He said when they create new recipes they get guidance from their Italian mentors. The proof is in the gelato!
Our family of four tried two flavors each and loved it so much that we stopped by after lunch the next day before heading home. We were bummed that we didn't think to just have lunch there as they offer some delicious looking paninis and cold, European style sandwiches and other pastries.
If we are ever in Knoxville again, Coolato Gelato will be on our list!
