D'Ambrosio Gelateria Artigianale Restaurant Review

: D'Ambrosio is an unassuming storefront, with a few tables and chairs and a big glass case displaying the luscious goods. Those goods --- the gelato --- are made daily from local and imported ingredients. Varieties are seasonal, but also include classics such as lemon, chocolate, pistachio, hazelnut and coconut, along with more exotic flavors like mascarpone with figs and caramel or spicy chocolate. Expect long lines on hot days, but be assured the wait is well worth it. Additional shops are located in Capitol Hill (1542 12th Ave., 206-328-4285) and Bellevue (403 Bellevue Square, 425-451-4919).
