After shopping in downtown NOTL, we happened upon this little Gelato shop. I had the dark chocolate/orange gelato which was very refreshing! At first I couldn't taste the "orange", so I mentioned it to the server; and she explained that b/c it is hand made,...More

We had the chocolate/orange gelato which was so decadently creamy and delicious. It had orange peel and a slightly spicy chocolate blend of delight. Can't wait to return

I love this place! The sugar-free hazelnut gelato is exceptional. You can also get their treats in the Shaw Festival Theatre lobby at intermission. Fast, friendly service. Bring your Shaw ticket stub for 10% off too!

I am a gelato afficionado and believe me this is the best. Try a scoop of limone and a scoop of pistachio together. The lemon is really lemony and the pistachios come in fresh from Italy. The chocolate/orange is good worthy of note too. But...More

Yummy treats and great service. Very pleased with flavor and value AND I was able to get a variation on Chocolate Chip Ice Cream which seems to have vanished from ice cream shops!

Totally outstanding, run by real Italians, just right...Only beef is that it's a little expensive, but hey - you have to pay for the top quality and service. Nice fun place with Gelato that will haunt your dreams forever!

Gellati, vanilla tasted like a little bit like Cheese cake, but I like the taste, I wish the price is bit more lower. バニラジェラートを食べました、レアチーズのような味で美味しかったです。 少しお高い目かな?という気がしましたが、満足です

I dont think a discount will be needed as the price is very reasonable and it is the best in town by far!

Ciao Norm900. We know the pizzeria/trattoria you are talking. It was not us but a Napolitano called Maurizio who opened this. He has an openly visible wood oven and the pizza is REAL NAPLES pizza. He also has other trattoria... More

Our suppliers in Italy use diverse fruits such as Alfonso Mangoes from Bombay, soft-flesh coconuts from Sri Lanka, to pistachios from Bronte, Sicily, and hazelnuts from Piemonte, Italy. Yes, we also offer gluten free cones and our sorbettos are dairy free.In the summer, we use Niagara grown peaces, apricots, plums, strawberry, etc. We also use other fresh fruits such as grapefruit, oranges, lemon, pineapple, avocado, watermelon, etc. For our sorbettos.
