I got the honeycrisp apple and Thai coconut flavors of gelato. The honeycrisp was really great. Service was fine. We enjoyed sitting at their sidewalk tables. For two small scoops of gelato, it was about $5.50, plus tax.

The place is not as nice as the one in Fairfax and it does not look very well cleaned. Also, the temperature of the gelato seems to be too low as the bitter chocolate was rather hard. Apart from that, same good gelato quality as in Fairfax, but the shop was not so clean and the server was rather uninformed.... More

Yes, this place is more known for their delicious gelato. But coming from the PacNW (and inherently a coffee snob), this is one of the few DC metro places that serve coffee from Stumptown - a Portland and PacNW favorite. Definitely worth a quick side trip when you're looking for more than Starbux. (They also have a limited selection of... More

Needed a cup of coffee and came across this place after dinner. Had the vanilla latte which was just about perfect. If you're nearby, don't waste your time at a national chain but support a local business because the quality of coffee doesn't even compare. Cookie was also excellent.

I'm a coffee snob and I'm from Europe. So it's really hard to satisfy my tastes for coffee in the USA. But this place did it! Delicious coffee of the perfect size (not too big), with the taste of the coffee (and not coffee infused water). I really enjoyed the nice atmosphere while waiting for my espresso to go. For...

Simple, flavorful and great. They use very good beans and the machine rocks! Next time will try gelato. Student service so don't expect much on that front.

Tasted the lemon and basil and the pear and thought they were delicious especially the latter which really tasted like the fruit. One of the best pear sherbet i've had. Nice little store in the Northern part of Georgetown and friendly, competent service.

It is almost de rigueur that gelatos you get at chain outlets are very sweet. Too sweet in fact. Dolcezza is such a relief! Their hazelnut, coffee and raspberry variants were all flavourful, some with a hint of saltiness. We loved it!

If you are looking for gelato or sorbet look no further. They serve gelato and sorbet with a delightful, refreshing twist. The sorbetto honey tangerine was so delicious and the chocolate gelato was had a deep, rich taste to awaken your senses. Lines are sure to be had, but they go quickly!
