Stopped in again yesterday morning, always a very pleasant addition to the Saturday morning errand run in winter. The espresso remains lovely and Taking home an eight-scoop tray to enjoy through the coming week was perfect! Half crema biscotti and half spicy chocolate is a great combo!

Great place to go and have a gelato with friends. We sat inside and enjoyed time with friends and also seeing friends that would stop in.I can't be specific of which one is my favorite because all the ones I have tried so far are excellent.

Dolce Freddo is a local gem. It offers approximately 48 flavors -- many seasonal -- and I assure you there has not been a flavor I haven't LOVED. The shop is always clean, the staff is attentive (PLUS they will let you taste a flavor or two), and the other "sweet" offerings are yummy. I urge you to try either... More

This is, hands down, the best of the best! There are always a wide variety of flavors and they are all delicious! The seasonal flavors have to be tried and the year round flavors never get old!

Dolce Freddo Gelato offers a ton of different gelato flavors to try. My two favorites are chocolate and the coffee gelato is awesome! They also offer homemade soups when it gets cold. I love their soups and their gelato. Great prices / Great food

Best gelato, very creamy and smooth many flavors to choose from. I had gelato in Italy and this is 100% equal....maybe it has something to do with the fact that the maker Andre is 100% Italian from Italy and learned to make it there.... Be sure to try his Tiramisu-delish!

This is the best gelato I have ever tasted including the taste testing I did in Rome. I often go for a special treat and when I host a dinner party, I pick up their 8 scoop special and serve it for dessert.
