All I can say is yum, yum, yum. This place has a variety made in-house gelato and ice cream. We always bring our family here when they visit. It's the best place for ice cream in town!

We were in Colorado Springs for 5 days and got gelato and ice cream here every night! There are 5 of us in the family and between us tried to try as many flavors as we could. I have also been to Italy and this gelato definitely was on par with all the gelato I ate while I was there.... More

It was really nothing special, the employee was nice and friendly, allowed us to sample a couple. There wasn't a whole lot of choice that day. The place was completely empty, which was a nice thing. Average gelato.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Glacier. The customer service was excellent. We were encouraged to try samples to see what we really liked best. I assumed I would get an ice cream but when I tried the gelato I was shocked at how rich it was. I was also surprised at how reasonably priced it was. I will definitely... More

I have been here several times and I am never disappointed. I had caramel toffee and my daughter had the raspberry sorbet. Highly recommend!

Stopped off here for a sweet treat to end our trip. Extremely pleased and surprised! Service was so amazing my husband who doesn't normally tip at places like this left a tip!! Choices of flavor and variety were abundant for both gelato and regular ice cream. We were all pleased and would go again!
