A great place to take a pause to refresh. Outdoor seating with a bay view! Incredible flavors, very dense like gelato is supposed to be. The REAL deal! The Italian cream flavor with any of the fruit flavors was my favorite combo in 4 visits!

I Dream of Gelato is the Best in Town. I pretty much stop in for gelato almost every night in the summer. The staff is great always helpful with my choices. My favorite is Italian Whipping Cream. Try it!

This place is the real deal. Excellent Gelato in many flavors, dense and intense! Fine with no toppings- my preference- but some combos they come up with are out of this world!

The unannounced special on the frozen drink was a bonus, but it didn't stay frozen for long. We wanted to quench our thirst, and it was so sweet, you just wanted more. The view from the end of the building facing the water was beautiful, it was just too hot to stay outside, even with the wind. We hit the... More

We were in Ptown for 7 days, and we went here 3 times! It's tucked in one of the food courts along Commercial St, but it was honestly the best gelato I've had since eating the real thing in Italy.

A quaint little gelato shop that charges just a bit too much for average gelato. The staff are very friendly and you get to eat your gelato sitting outside, looking at the water if you're lucky enough to get a seat. I liked the two flavours I picked, but it wasn't as creamy as it could be and you don't... More
