You must stop here! The gelato is amazing and the staff is very friendly. They let you try as many flavors as you want. Highly recommended!!

Lots of flavor so, both dairy and non-dairy. Convent location, reasonably priced. I would definitely return.

They offer samples so you can pick your favorite. The portions are big enough for 2 to share a small. The flavors were delicious. They tasted just like what we had in Italy!

We got medium size gelato which were huge. Two of us could have shared one. Very tasty and lots of favors to choose from. They have sorbet as well and outdoor seating.

A nice gelato/sorbet place on Thames Street. The sorbet is excellent. Each item tastes like fresh peaches, blood orange, etc. Done perfectly. The gelato leave something to be desired. While good, it was missing something. The chocolate almond was okay, the peanut butter average. Still...More

Best gelato I have ever had. Really great value. Truly tasted fresh, and was served in an equally fresh waffle cone.
