Surprise! Have tried a lot of gelato. A lot of it good, but this place is the winner!! A great winner!! I know gelato may be small, but this has big flavor, real fruit, made on premises. Wish there was more outdoor seating.

Try the "Inkey" flavour...it looks black, but is actually a very, very dark chocolate. Also the "Core" was delicious. Very nice chap behind the counter, I was mesmerized watching him scoop and shape the gelato into the cup. Not far from the Duomo.

We found this little site for a gelato hit. We always look for natural gelato as it's a little cheaper and tastes a lot better. Friendly staff and nice selection of interesting flavours.
