Al Gelato Restaurant Review

: The major draw at this diminutive storefront eatery is the list of more than 70 flavors of handcrafted gelato, and because of its name, many people believe Al Gelato has a strictly limited repertoire. But neighborhood loyalists and those in-the-know have been keeping a secret: there is much more to this bustling spot than gelati and pastries, and nearly everything on the menu is recommendable. Homemade Italian breads are used to make sandwiches with meatballs or Italian sausage bathed in well-seasoned marinara, and the pastas (spinach ravioli, baked lasagna, gnocchi) are also solid, and there are reasonably good pizzas, too. If you’re not into gelato, consider finishing with ultra-deep dish apple pie, cannoli, New York cheesecake, or hand-crafted and -painted marzipan treats. There’s no wine list, but inquire about bringing your own bottle.

Al Gelato not only serves the best, freshest, creamiest gelato in the United States , it also serves some of the best authentic Italian food on earth. Claire, the original owner/chef from the original Al Gelato in Chicago's burbs, oversees the kitchen, bakes the best homemade thick bread, pickles their own olives/gardenia, makes their own sausage and meatballs, should I go on? No, it's not fancy..that's the point. It's simply delicious. I've run into everyone from Rickie Lee Jones to Tom Hanks to Bruce Willis here. Yes, it's that great. Do yourself a favor...GO!!!!!!! NOW!
