    The best gelato in Philadelphia. When available, the dairy-free chocolate sorbet is the bomb.

    Dark chocolate & pistacchio. No more mini cups, and the wifi never really works, but the staff, ambiance, and gelato are wonderful. Definitely try the affogato.

    It's a bit pricey but there are a ton of flavors to choose from and it's truly worth trying. The sea salt caramel and rich dark chocolate are my favorites thus far.

    The flavors are original and creative, without being overly wacky. A smaller selection of gelato here than at the Rittenhouse Square location. Try the grapefruit, pistachio, or banana foster gelati.

    Great gelato but their real advantage over any Italian gelato place is the pitcher of iced water on the counter.

    Gelato and hockey doesn't sound like they would go together, but they do. Thai coconut is a popular flavor.

    Dark chocolate is always good; the espresso with "moka" was a good choice for the affogato.

    I will never stop coming to this place, but the bald manager is insufferable. I forgave him for the first year because I would always tell myself he was having a bad day, but nah, he just hates us all

    Pretty delish...though not being a sweets fan, I'd say some of the most attractive things about this place are 1) everything is Instagram'able, and 2) It's a nice study spot to escape Penn'ness

    No seriously, they have a bar in this one. Try one of the sorbetto-influenced drinks and be wowed by what is basically a delicate, delicious, alcoholic milkshake.
