I've been to Gelato enough times to give a 'more than once' perspective. And I've had gelato in many communities in the US. Alotta is a solid gelato store. The ambiance is sparse, but its a gelato shop not fine dining. They'll let you sample your way through the entire selection if you want so there's no need to say you didn't like what you had. Conversation is always as much or as little as you want - we tend to like to hear what's going on in town. And prices are more than fair. Anyone who says they left and went to Dairy Queen to get better is on crack...even if you don't like what you had, the suggestion that soft serve is better speaks volumes about the reviewers tastes. Anyway, the conglomerate is my favorite as is the Romeo and Juliet. My eyes always want the large size but my stomach prefers the small.
