“This CAN'T be the #1 rated restaurant in Hyannis”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

We stopped here after dinner because I usually trust Trip Advisors recommendations. The location is very central, small selection, very small sizes, average to high prices.
Please do not go here if you think it will be anything like Italian gelato, it doesn't come close. I ordered a small 2 flavor cup (chocolate/espresso) and my family ordered small cones (pistachio). The serving size was smaller than what most consider kiddie size. I think a previous reviewer called it a Dixie cup size.
The guy used a small scooper where in Italy they use a paddle and smear it onto a cone or into a cup. The texture was a little elastic, the creaminess heavy and the flavoring a little too strong. Something was just off in this experience...

“Best Gelato”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Yes, it is the best gelato place ever! The staff is a bit peculiar, but you can tell they love what they serve and are very proud to do so. I enjoyed both visits and all four flavors. If only we had been in town for one more day… Closed on Wednesdays – so plan accordingly.

“Superb gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

The best ice cream I have eaten outside Italy. The owners went to Bologna to learn how to make true gelato. Find it down a side street off Main Street (side street next to a bull themed restaurant).

“Excellent gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

My wife and I looked for the place having read the positive reviews,
Hard to find, look for the giant ice Cretan cone down the street next to the JFK museum on Main Street
Meet the owners who made their recommendation and we savoured, yummy, excellent gelato, recommended, very good.

“Just walked 3 miles for this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

I just walked three miles to get another hit of the Clove flavor gelato. It's changed my life. They said they made it as an experiment. Do yourself a favor and try the flavor.

Tastes like chai tea but better
