What can I say. I usually get chocolate and raspberry--two scoops and it is plenty for me. I have have other flavors and they are of equal quality--good. We seem to end up here at the end of the evening for that sweet treat finish.

Chocolate Hazelnut is the bomb I must admit. Otherwise it's like any other gelato place I have ever visited.

Homemade Gelato, all kinds of creative flavors. Also the basics for the less adventurous. The gelato comes in very petite cups. It's all so rich it's all you need.
