We spotted Balsano's while out to dinner and my husband wanted to try it out. We were not disappointed! Fun atmosphere, great service and lots of flavor options! Go see for yourself! Fun little place!

This place makes the most amazing Gelato and the staff are wonderful. Tried the Salted Caramel and the Chocolate Chip and loved both. Their cheesecake flavor tastes like real cheese cake except way healthier.

I live nearby and frequent Balsano's often. It's fantastic! If you are near the P&L or the Crossroads it's a must visit. Fresh ingredients, creative flavors (they always have at least a dozen). Skip dessert and get some gelato!

Nice small place. Only had 1 person working on a busy night. Sample it before you get the scoop. Cookies N Cream was good.

Don't miss this great little spot in the shadow of the Power & Light District. The gelato was amazing and really hit the spot after a hot day at the zoo. The staff could not have been more hospitable. If you hit a franchise store...More
