5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Creamy goodness that comes in all sorts of different flavors. We tried the coconut and the salty caramel. Both excellent.

“Most unbelievable and incomparable gelato this side of the Atlantic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Best gelato in town from a young Italian owner. Great, sleek, high-tech (stainless-steel) decor. Ask to try as many of their seasonal ~20 flavors, they don't mind. Each one is the most savory taste of that flavor you've ever had.

“Slight edge over Frost”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I had the fortune of being in Tucson for a week and having a gelato every night (don't have this at home!). I alternated between Frost and Allegro, and both are fantastic. However, I want to give Allegro the slight edge because 1) the biscotti biscuit is better, 2) they will mix two flavors in a small size, and 3) they are slightly less expensive.

“The. Best. Pistachio. Gelato.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We were intrigued by the look of the place - with the fancy rotating display of the gelatos. We tried a few flavours and don't remember disliking any of them. My wife loved her chocolate gelato, but I'd highly recommend the pistachio gelato.

I'll be going back here if/when I'm in Tucson again.

“Tasting glory”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The generous sampling allowance is a sweet welcome, especially as myriad choices are all beckoning for a taste. I settled on three this time: cinnamon, grasping the spice with power, kiwi, because who can peel or scoop so many kiwi as quickly as one enjoys this gelato made from the fruit itself and a splatter of spicy chocolate sorbet, the sorbet flavor of the day with a hint of zing wrapped in deep dark chocolate. Be sure to keep your sampling spoons since you will want to share and try those your friends have chosen! I am not a frozen dessert fan, yet I will return for Allegro il Gelato because of its true fruit natural ingredients, smooth creamy texture without overshadowing sugars, and lightness. Make it one of your Tucsonian delights.
