The gelato is pricy but really worth it. The flavors are creative, it's super fresh and the ingredients are high quality. I love the off-beat flavors like marscapone, beet, peppercorn, olive oil, lavender-honey, black sesame (my fave). You can pretend you are in Willy Wonka's factory and order a cup with butternut squash, tarragon and salted caramel and have a whole meal (of ice cream!!) in one bowl.

Is the gelato fantastic? YES! Is the sorbet actually magical? Totally! Is it insane to have 2 servers on a weekend night in the summer time?! yes! I waited 20min. Because I know it's good. And they can't be bothered to hire additional staff to serve. Unacceptable.

...because I would if I could. Simply amazing. The gelato is as close as you will get to true Italian made gelato. The sorbets are equally wonderful. Apples, berries, all incredibly refreshing on a hot day. Well worth the trip east down Houston from anywhere. Just go, you won't be disappointed.

I'm a huge fan of this place. The staff is friendly, and the product is of the best quality. It's difficult to decide on what to purchase because they're all great. In regard to sorbets, I highly recommend grapefruit-campari and lemon-basil. The dark chocolate gelato and toasted coconut gelato, DELICIOUS! This is place is a small piece of heaven on earth.
