Il Gelato

Italian gelato is tastier and lighter than American ice cream and traditionally made with only the freshest ingredients. Most places allow you up to three flavors (even on a small cone) and portions are usually quite generous. Typical flavors are crema (plain cream), nocciola (hazelnut), pistachio, chocolate, and a vast choice of fruit flavors. Or hunt down the latest and greatest flavors, such as cioccolato con peperoncino (chocolate with chilies).
