This little local family owned shop is absolutely killer! I want to eat it all! The Gelato is so smooth and so tasty. I wish I could move the whole shop back to my home state with me. I'm in love. And the staff is so very friendly and the shop is so cute. This is a must go to... More

I've traveled extensively and had gelato all over Italy over the years, and this simply isn't gelato. The texture is completely wrong. This is more similar to Braum's icecream. The flavors are good, but it gets two stars for not being actual gelato.

May I ask what flavor you had? We have been hand making our gelato for 9 years and haven't ran into this before. Did you have a sorbetti? That definitely is not the same consistency as gelati. Email me directly at nick@ildolcegelato.com More

For those of us who are allergic to dairy, an ice cream shop that has an alternative to dairy is a godsend. That's why I'm so glad to have this store in Norman, although it's such a temptation. Their selection of sorbets is limited, but they always have had lemon, my favorite.

Always a good experience visiting ll Dolce Gelato. Lots of flavors to choose from and almost never a long wait time. You cannot go wrong with this sweet little treat, in both the atmosphere and the food.

This place has really good gelato and the variety is great. My favorite flavors are Cappuccino and Cookies and Cream. Take advantage of the free samples to find a flavor you like. It is a little expensive, but in my opinion, worth it.

My wife is a gelato addict. Any time we travel we have to stop in whichever city and get gelato. We have had some really really good gelato in places like Washington DC, and some really bad in Tennessee. This ranks right in the middle. My favorite thing to get is Affogato, they are supposed to take Italian hot chocolate... More

Eating regular ice cream is hard after having had the gelato from here. They have some delicious flavors and they are always adding new ones. It was always a favorite place for my family to go for dessert after eating out. Whenever I visit family, we make it a point to stop by.

The young ladies working there were very helpful. My favorite wasn't available and they made several suggestions and allowed me to taste each. The gelato was very tasty...not quite as good as Italy...but a close second. Enjoy!
