THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Boccato Gelato & Espresso Restaurant Review

: Annexed to a Hispanic meat market-grocery store is this hip-trendy gelato parlor. Flavors are a bit whacky, such as chocolate-bacon, Nerds and coconut-caramel, and they rotate on a regular basis. Customers are urged to dream up their own best taste, and it might then become a featured player. Every gelato is made fresh daily, and if you need something hot to accompany your cold cup, order an espresso to go. Ready-to-eat empanadas are on the menu as well, so come early, eat plenty and hang out. With a nod to the many kids and families who drop by, there’s a people- and dog-friendly seating area out front.
