When we eat in downtown Napa along the river at one of the many great restaurants that are there, we always choose to have dessert here. That's because their gelato is just like the gelato you find in Italy. Just one of our favorites.

The gelato was perfect. Typical flavors like limoncello, pistachio. Try the Modena - a blend of chocolate with a reduction of balsamic vinegar and chocolate pieces. The type of flavor you would expect to find in Napa.

I consider Frati to serve the best gelato I've had outside Italy. Truly delicious and creative flavors that change with the seasons and the whims of their Gelato Master/Proprietor. As if that wasn't draw enough, he takes his coffee and espresso very seriously. A perfect...More
