“Real Italian Gelato (if an Italian says so!)”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I am actually from Italy (born and raised), so I can affirm that this is the real deal. It is delicious, and a real treat for me, since there are no other places like this in East Tennessee. They rotate flavors, so you get to try something new every time. Just go and have some, trust me, you will be forever thankful you listened to me!

“You've got to eat here!”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

We used a Half-off coupon for our dinner date. Oh my, everything we had was so tasty! The Lobster Bisque and Broccoli Cheese soups were just perfect. The Cobb salad was fresh and very well prepared, topped with homemade honey lime dressing. The Smoked Salmon panini and tortellini pasta were yummy. Then we got to dessert, so many choices. The gelato is so smooth and tasty. Then the owner told us that it has much less calories. We found it has more flavor and really great tasting.

What is there not to love. The temptations are endless and they let you taste test before you order....the flavors are amazing.

“very tasty”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

After having a lot of gelato recently while in eastern europe, Coolato ranks right up there. Authentic style with delicious flavors. Even the man working behind the counter, Patrick, had been in Poland this summer and we enjoyed chatting about gelato and our experiences. The other sandwiches and desserts looked delicious also. Might have to make this a regular stop when dining downtown.
