I'm pretty solidly spoiled when it comes to ice cream and gelato, and Morano Gelato is among the better gelato places I've tried. The free samples are really nice. The only drawback is that the place can get a little loud and sticky.

While in Vermont for a pastry class, my wife and came upon Morano Gelato, which is described in several online reviews as the best gelato in the US. We would have to agree.

I appreciate a little something sweet after dinner. Gelato and Ice cream are my favorite choices. This was an excellent experience. Nice friendly young staff, ample selection of Gelato. I had the stratchetella - a favorite since my summers in Italy. I will be back next year.

Lots of homemade gelato to pick from. They also have a couple non-dairy flavors. We had strawberry, banana and citrus. Movie theater next door. Inside seating available very clean and nice ladies work there. Pretty town. Lots of fun!!

Awesome creamy gelato to satisfy your after dinner sweet tooth. Unique flavors. Try mixing two! We always go here for dessert when we're in town visiting our daughter. Never miss it, even in the winter!

Scoopers seem to really enjoy what could be a tedious job and the product that they dish out is delicious.

Other than in Milano, Rome, Venice, Florence we've never had this good gelato. The best part is that the flavors change daily, other than the classics: stracciatella (vanilla with chocolate shards), vanilla, chocolate and my all time favorite, nocciola (hazelnut). Excellent service, too. Will definitely go back next time we're in the area.

We liked the gelato and Italian vibe. It was tasty, but not cheap. Fruit flavors a bit bland. Air conditioning nice on a hot day, they also have outside seating.
