il laboratorio del gelato
If you cannot find a gelato you like at il laboratorio del gelato then you should just go home. I stopped counting the flavors after I reached 15.  It is kind of overwhelming with the variety of flavors and not being able to actually see them all.  There are plenty of eager gelato lovers standing in front of the case. Be patient!  Some flavors you may have never heard of before, ask for a sample.  Sweet Potato is ummm, well, really good.  You shouldn't pass on a sample of cinnamon. Skip the cream cheese. If you have never had gelato, make sure you do not over indulge. Gelato is slightly more creamy than ice cream and therefore, it could have a heavier taste.

Meatball Shop

October 10, 2010
The name Meatball Shop could throw you off a little. It is true they do make incredible meatballs, but they also have perfected certain ice cream flavors and the peanut butter cookie. They have a mint ice cream that has actual pieces of mint blended in. If you are a fan of mint ice cream you will love this mint ice cream. Their ice cream is made in house and flavors do change. They have a nice assortment of cookies and one that should be crowned The Peanut Butter Cookie of the year. It is fla...
