Nothing fancy, just outstanding gelato. If available, have the hot chocolate poured over gelato. For gelato alone, nothing beats the dark chocolate/orange mixture.

Description
Pitango Gelato creates authentic gelato focusing on classic Italian flavors rather than novelties or trends. Made with grass-fed organic milk and fresh organic fruit and nuts, our products contain no flavorings, no colorings, nor artificial ingredients of any kind. Pitango also takes its coffee very seriously. We use organic, single-estate beans roasted especially for us in small batches by a local boutique roaster.
