“Frozen heaven”
Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

Best gelato ever. Amazing flavors and great staff. Can u imagine tasting porcini mushroom, saffron, or cantelope gelato? Watching the impressive circular freezers turn is worth the trip and fewer calories than ice cream. The subtle flavors are beyond description. Don't be scared they have "normal" flavors, too.

“The Best Gelato outside of Italy”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

A great selection of flavors to choose from, everything from the basic-and-perfect vanilla to the unusual like pineapple basil. If you are a licorice fan, the anice is not to be missed. And the strawberry is perfection. All the ingredients are natural, seasonal and, where possible, local. Yum! Just writing this makes me want to go there now!

“Tucson's best gelato experience!”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

This place offers some of the best gelato in Tucson!

They have a wonderful presentation of some superb products. Their two circular glass-topped gelato freezers with spinning space-ship technology must have cost a mint. Seeing them is reason enough to visit at least once. The spectacular smoothness and flavors of their gelato made my coworkers regular clients.

The flavors range from the familiar to the creative. Besides the traditional vanilla bean, chocolate and berries, they also include creations like saffron, anis, carrot, coconut, and even their wonderful pear with a touch of cabernet.

They are located near the University of Arizona at the Sam Hughes business court - the southeast corner of Campbell and 6th St.

Visit once...you'll be back again and again! Yum!!!!

“The most amazing gelato I have ever tasted”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

Due to being insanely delicious, I have relished every flavor I've ordered: Coconut, Vanilla (several variations), Chocolate (several variations), various fruit flavors. The names are often creative, and I have not included them here. Highly recommended if in the mood for gelato.
