    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.

    Chcolate scurro and baccio! Espresso is awesome too

    Sophia Hu · September 7
  • Bre B.

    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.

    Dark chocolate gelato. And espresso.

    Grilled Cheese is always a good bet!

    Not sure if it's just me, but I couldn't connect my computer to the wifi here

    Joshua Lee · September 22, 2014
  • D G.

    Gelato is always good. Personal favorite is Mexican dark chocolate.

    D Gheebs · September 9, 2014
  • Nivedita V.

    Gelato- nutella flavor, red grape, chocolate malt are great flavors !

    Nivedita Velagaleti · September 1, 2014
  • Daniel W.

    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.

    Daniel Wolf · August 25, 2014
  • Thomas M.

    Featured in National Geographic! Sometimes has interesting daily flavors such as cucumber mint.

    Thomas Mo · August 14, 2014
  • Catherine D.

    I love that they always offer as many tastes you wanna try... They're not bothered by it :) warm service by friendly staff!

    Catherine Devadanam · August 13, 2014
  • Lore B.

    Best ice-cream in philly. Any nuts or fruit flavor is worth to try

    Lore Benavent · August 11, 2014
  • David H.

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

    David Howland · August 10, 2014
  • Basak Ö.

    You should taste the ice-cream ! Its amazing 😋😋

    Basak Ö. · July 12, 2014

    Their staff are so generous when it comes to giving out sampling. My fav is white grapes

  • Hockey on Campus

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

    Hockey on Campus · April 6, 2014
  • Elly M.

    They make good mocha!

    Elly Morientes · February 12, 2014
  • Kenneth H.

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

    Kenneth Hutchins · December 29, 2013
  • Duckiey D.

    Mexican Chocolate is the way to go.

    Duckiey D · December 20, 2013

    They put rubber stoppers on the chairs recently, so they don't make that terrible noise anymore!

    Breanna Perry · September 26, 2013
  • Bonnie C.

    Try the pistachio and Thai coconut

    Bonnie Courvoisier · September 15, 2013
  • Quianna E.

    The Thai coconut is my favorite tastes fresh every time. If you like coconut milk this flavor is definitely for you!

    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

    Shameem Balakrishnan · July 22, 2013
  • amanda w.

    Salted caramel gelato is great, especially paired with another sweet flavor like milk chocolate!

    amanda w · May 5, 2013
  • Ha T.

    Nocciola (hazelnut) is a MUST! Better than Nutella.

    Ha Truong · March 28, 2013
  • Juan V.

    The vegetable toast, though.

    Juan Visser · March 12, 2013
  • Krishna C.

    Dark choc n hazelnut r awsome. Very rich icecream quality.

    Krishna Choksi · February 18, 2013
  • Alec M.

    They installed slidy things in the chairs. No more screeching!

    Alec Miller · January 24, 2013
  • Lucy X.

    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

    Lucy Xu · January 18, 2013
  • Laura

    Try the popcorn green tea. This is probably the best tea I've ever had.

    Laura · December 8, 2012
  • Steve G.

    Gotta have the Tahini flavor.....oh baby baby!

    Steve Grimaldi · December 4, 2012
  • Eddie C.

    Going to put it out there. Bald guy with a hat is an asshole.

    Eddie Cohen · December 1, 2012
  • Hannah G.

    try the bitter chocolate! Or pear & wild turkey sorbetto when they have it.

    Hannah GM · November 27, 2012
  • My N.

    Do not underestimate the cayenne pepper gelato... But you can alway cool down with a Sweet Amish milk. ;)

    My Nguyen · November 21, 2012
  • Vindu G.

    Love the hazelnut gelato.

    Vindu Goel · November 1, 2012
  • Breanna P.

    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.

    Breanna Perry · November 1, 2012
  • Raya M.

    Get the steal cut oatmeal with banana and cinnamon for a delicious breakfast. Also the table all the way in the far right corner is prime real estate...but keep in mind there are no outlets!

    Raya Musallam · October 25, 2012
  • April H.

    Slightly pretentious hipster staff, not very friendly customer service, but great gelato!

    April Hall · September 17, 2012
  • 😈Babs💜 .
