I have never had anything but their Gelato. The rest could be terrible but I would still rate this place 5 star because if the quality of the Gelato. Creative flavors, smooth and delicious. Can't believe it is in JC!

Don't let the name of this place fool you. Yes they do have the best gelato I have had outside of Europe but they also have great sandwiches including homemade paninis.

Heaven in a cup. Thus guy is the Willy Wonka of gelato. Take the time to try many different flavors. They offer a nice lunch as well.

always thought this was a Italian ice type shop. stopped in on a whim...glad we did...very tasty soups made daily...sandwiches are not bad either...maybe signage would help the uninformed masses.

Best gelato ever! I had a friend visiting in Johnson City and I took her there. After later returning from a trip to Italy she contacted me and said, "I had gelato numerous times while in Italy but you have better right there in Johnson City!" Yes, they have fabulously flavorful soups and breads and I do eat lunch there occasionally, but I pop in for gelato at least twice a week. (The other day I went twice in one day!!). Oh Spumoni! Be still my heart!
