Citysearch Editorial Review.
Commonwealth Avenue has been steadily upping its cool factor with new wine bars, live music venues and locally owned eateries, including this sweet gelato shop. Owned and operated by a serious gelato aficionado from Italy, it might be the only place in the neighborhood where you can find 18 different flavors of old-fashioned, homemade gelato in one place. Some flavors, like their signature creamy frate, are available every day, though it?s advisable to splurge on selections made with seasonal ingredients like fig or peaches when you can. Another regular customer favorite is the slightly tangy, smooth, and surprisingly tasty Modena, a balsamic vinaigrette reduction. The good news for people watching calories is that whole milk, instead of heavy cream, is used to make the gelato, and all the sorbettos are fat-free. Prices are standard and begin at $3 for a small serving. The shop also serves paninis and Italian coffee.
