So good we went back the next day. Fun place with wonderful flavors that you can sample before you buy. If you buy the small size you will be disappointed when it's all gone so get the medium! Very friendly staff too.

Although not quite on a par with gelato in Florence (perhaps the surroundings is the difference) this gelato is excellent. The staff is very helpful and allowed multiple tastes. We returned two nights in a row and between our visits we tried 12 different flavors.

This had to be some of the best gelato that I have ever had. I had a mix of dark chocolate and black cherry and after an hour I still can't get over how good it was. If you like gelato, you have to give this place a try!

I had the cappuccino and dark chocolate gelato, and it hit the spot. I only wish I had more time to spend in Philadelphia so I could sample the other flavors!

First off, you any taste anything you want. Be adventurous with the samples! Everything is fresh and extremely flavorful. Surprisingly the avocado gelato is deliciously rich and creamy, nothing like guacamole.

This is excellent ice cream. The portions are small but very rich and decadent. It is expensive but worth it.
