What is gelato?

Gelato is smoother & denser than American ice cream. Our gelato is made with whole milk, eliminating cream & butter fat, making it a healthier choice. Since temperature plays a role in our distinct flavors and smooth texture, our gelato is served 10-15 degrees warmer than ice cream. When you are craving something sweet, enjoy our gelatos and sorbets without the guilt!
