Pistacchio - Gelato Naturale Italiano
Ranked #10 of 68 Dessert in Tucson
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 23, 2013

What this place lacks in space and ambiance is more than made up for by the quality of the gelato. My friends who brought me here are Tuscon natives, and they had recently traveled to Italy- and they are convinced that the gelato at Allegro is better than half the gelato they had in Italy. The guy who owns this place got some kind of certification in Italy. A lot of the ingredients are sourced locally. Additionally, he doesn't make up batches and then add flavor. I don't think I've ever had stracciatella. Cinnamon and concord grape are also delicious. As other people have mentioned there are fun innovative flavors too, and the rotating cases and good service make trying different flavors a good part of the experience.
Not a ton of seating! But it's okay.

There are two great gelato places in Tucson and this is one of them. Tested several flavors, all excellent.

The Gelato at Allegro is as good as the local chain Frost, but they do offer some more exotic flavors. We often find saffron, aniseed, and other interesting flavors there.

The care given to the Gelato here is immense. The staff let you try as many flavors as you want until you match what you want exactly. With flavors from classics such as caramel to the strangest like mushroom, it always is amazing!

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. A++++++++++
