A lot of unique options, not cheap but worth it for an after dinner treat. It ran us about $22 for 3, but you can get multiple flavors in a cup.

I tried the pistachio gelato. It was the best gelato I've ever had. The cappuccino and the Italian hot chocolate were also very good. Friendly staff. Clan. Nice atmosphere. Highly recommend.

We have been searching for the ultimate cup of hot chocolate in the DC area, and we may have found it! The sipping chocolate is tiny (it comes in a dixie cup), but it is amazingly rich and rewarding -- and at $2.50 it is about the best deal on a drink or dessert you can find in the DC... More

Tasty gelato- many flavors to choose from - two sizes - on the expensive side for ice cream filled with air.

There are several branches, but this is the one I frequent. The variety of flavors is astounding. One of my favorites, when they have it, is cardamom. Their nut based gelati (hazelnut, pistachio, and almond are all ones I've tried) are really good too. Getting an affogato whether made with chocolate or coffee is a real treat.

Great product, small place with a line. I tried the mango and chocolate/orange sorbet. My son had the cinnamon gelato - much creamier and yummier. Next time, I'd try their sipping chocolate (thick chocolate consumed in Italy, Spain and France).

Unique flavors. Was not crowded. We went back twice in a day. Cardamom was our favorite. Enjoyed it very much.

This is a great little shop with amazing gelato options. They have gone way beyond the basic flavors and created some outstanding combinations. I would recommend the mojito be one of your choices.

We ate here for a quick and easy dessert after eating dinner a few doors down. They have delicious gelato and sorbets to choose from whether you like chocolate or fruity or whatever. It's organic and all natural and simply delicious!

Early-ish on a cool morning, their espresso was perfect. But then, as a dessert stop after a great meal down the street, their gelato and sorbet were to die for. Unusual flavor choices (rhubarb, pomegranate, cardamom, and others) led to a really nice capper to the evening. And just when we thought we were done, we tried the sipping chocolate.... More
