“So so good and mostly organic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

We had to taste the quince, the rhubarb (both sorbets), stracciatella, pistachio, as well as walnut, all flavors were delicious. Quince and rhubarb were a big surprise.

I don't know about the prices, a friend treated us but I would think that for organic, sustainable and (I hope) cruelty free, it's worth it. I hadn't been pleasantly surprised by gelato for a very long time.

“Affogato!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

The gelato is so fresh! The coffee they brew is counter culture and they have latte art. and the hot chocolate or 'sipping chocolate' as they it, is out of this world. It's thick and creamy and amazing.
But my favorite thing on the menu is the affogato. Basically it is a hot beverage poured over a scoop of gelato. You can get the sipping chocolate or a shot of espresso and it's amazing. I had the chocolate gelato with a shot of espresso on top or the sipping chocolate poured over the hazelnut gelato. It's so amazing. I'd definitely recommended it.

“Vegan delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is the only place I know in Baltimore where a vegan/ organic/ local eater can go for ice cream. Try the dark chocolate. It is amazing. Blackberry, Passion Fruit and Mojito are great choices too.

“Wow! Great Gelato!”

I've had gelato now about 4 times in my life. The first time in Italy. I have tried others but none compare until now. This was great.

“Wow! Great gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Pitango’s gelato in Fell's Point may be the best we have ever eaten. The fruit flavored selections are made in the back kitchen using fresh fruit that is reduced and then blended into the gelato mixture. The tastes are crisp and clearly defined. The server was friendly and helpful. Her explanations helped the group to make their decisions. This is a must-visit in the Fells Point harbor neighborhood.
