I was very excited find gelato and canoli in North Tacoma- feels like being in Italy. The service is super friendly!

Great treats for the eyes, mouth, and soul. Incredibly crafted swan pastry and cream. Wine and beer, gelato. Sicilian delight in Ruston / Point Defiance area. Not too many savory type of dishes but plenty of fine dining a couple of doors down. Great date...More
