Gelateria Restaurant Review

: Restaurateur Frank de Pasquale (Bricco, Umbria, Mare) lured a master gelato-maker all the way from Italy to train the employees at his North End shop --- and it shows, not only in the fine quality of the product but in the range of flavors (nearly 50 to be exact) to which many Americans may be new. Whether you come for an afternoon snack or a late-night sweet treat, you can indulge in traditional Italian favorites of limoncello, hazelnut, panna cotta, amaretto and bacio (chocolate with hazelnut) to fruity blends like watermelon, lime, grapefruit, orange and coconut. Here’s your stateside chance to try delicate gianduia torino (chocolate hazelnut vanilla) or candied-fruit-flecked cassata Siciliana.
