We lived in Europe for six years and have eaten a lot of gelato. Way too much gelato. So I feel qualified to judge gelato. We moved back to the US a year ago and I can say, without hesitation, that this is the best gelato we've had in this country.
After several free samples (thank you!) I went with two scoops - one of sour cherry swirl and one of cereal milk, which is similar to what the Austrians call "milcheis" and what the Italians call "fiordilatte." Both amazing. We also had chocolate flake (like straciatella), chocolate, lemon, mango, and I sampled pink grapefruit (also delicious but couldn't decide what to pair with it).
My husband read about it in Garden & Gun and the recommendation was spot on. As he was showing me the article at the shop and reading to me about the 82-year-old owner (he had brought the issue with him), the woman herself came over to clear our dishes and asked if we'd enjoyed it, and what flavors we had tried. She wanted to hear from all four of us, and told us she was glad we had come by.
Just go here - it's amazing. If we lived in Richmond, we'd be going here all the time!
