Though the name changed, the sorbetti and gelato are the same recipes with amazing natural ingredients. My favorite is the pineapple/basil. My hubby and daughter are vegan and also dairy allergy. Finding yummy desserts is not easily done. Today she had strawberry and lemon, and I had the pineapple/basil and cantelope. My Mom, who doesn't have a dairy issue had... More

my husband and i went to Allegro this past weekend. This Gelato is amazing--the pistachio was perfect and the cream Gelato melts in your mouth. The staff is great and more than willing to give multiple taste samples.

One of my favorite memories and experiences traveling in Italy was eating Gelato. It has been incomparable until we had it at Allegro. The owner is from Italy and the attention to detail, quality and taste is superb. So happy to have such an authentic place right here in Tucson!

This is probably Tucson's best gelato. Instead of soapy grease like you get at Frost--the gelato is light and creamy and the delicate flavors come through with a professional chef -like quality. But--to finally get the gelato in your mouth is the hard part. The place is small and it is challenging to see the gelato choices with the way... More

Probably the Best gelato I've had in Tucson. This is the first time I went with crazier flavors, I had pineapple basil and a strawberry mix. They let you taste the flavors too and they had some interesting spices at it like saffron and just plain cinnamon gelato. The price was reasonable too. My only suggestion is it gets a... More

If you are in the Tucson area, you MUST go to Allegro! Their Gelato is the best I've ever had! They have probably have 20+ flavors and you can sample them all! :) I love the pineapple basil and also the pistachio!

Huge selection of ice cream flavors disposed in two wheels. One can ask for a sample if unsure. We visited in a group of 5 in two visits, and almost all flavors were declared excellent. Only exception the lotus cookie flavor, that was found only "OK" by my daughter. She consoled herself with the stracciatella, her second flavor.The chocoholics in... More
