Tasted quite a few of the flavors. My wife did likewise and so did my daughter. We all had the opportunity to decide for our most favorite....

Best gelato ever! Been there several times - each time had a wonderful selection of gelatos. I even had their rich delicious hot chocolate - brought it home and added more milk as it is so rich so I got twice the amount to enjoy over 2 days - definitely worth the money!

Great Place to go, and probably the best gelato anywhere. I love that they have such good coffee and the sorbet's are also delicious. If it's possible to have healthy and delicious gelato this place does it. They even let you have samples if you request them. The staff is always great here.

I am lactose intolerant, so the prospect of creamy gelato is balanced by the expectation that my stomach would be upset within about 15 minutes of eating it. I was pleasantly surprised to find several different delicious sorbet options -- I had the chocolate noir and the strawberry -- and they were fantastic!

This brought me so far back to my nostalgic childhood days of getting Italian ice every Sunday with my dad. I'm still not really sure whether there's a difference between gelato and Italian ice, but this tasted identical to Italian ice, so. I picked lemon, rhubarb and granny apple... three small scoops is apparently a large and was like $7+,... More

Nothing better than tasty gelato on a hot day! Located in Reston Town Center, you can sit outside and enjoy your gelato at outside tables.

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.
