Great gelato -delicious coffee! Pleasant service. Easy to drop in for a hot coffee on a cool morning walk to the metro or a cup of cold gelato on a hot afternoon.

Good stuff. They give free samples and typical have about a dozen flavors. All are good. The prices range from upper 3's for the small, and they do halves of 2 flavors in any size. Nice staff.

During the summer and fall months, go on Sunday at @ noon and enjoy both the Fabulous Takoma Park Farmer's Market and along with some very good gelato. At other times, enjoy a fine or simple lunch or dinner at nearby restaurants and top it of here with a great desert.

Good selection of gelati flavors--all delish and creamy as they should be. Yum! A bit hard on the wallet, though, which is the only thing that prevents me from returning every day as I did in Sicily.....where I became an addict of gelato.

A solid selection of fruit flavors and cookie flavors. The lemon and mandarin were light, refreshing flavors and the gingerbread cookie was outstanding! Cookie crumbles atop creamy gelato. The serving sizes are reasonable and even the small has enough for two good scoops. While there isn't much seating inside, there are a few small tables and chairs, as well as... More

Let's see, did I like this place? I spent five overnights at the Cambria hotel, and I ate five different types of gelato. My number one recommendation is the marscapone fig oh my goodness so incredible little bit of dark chocolate sauce on top total heaven. #5poundsgained

Great Gelato, excellent pastries, and wonderful customer service. Gianluigi is a great person and loves to share his passion for gelato and pastries. Employees are accommodating and friendly. We keep going back for more. Not the most visited area of DC, but worth going just for this place.

Based on a recommendation, I was at Dolci Gelati back in October before departing for Germany. This time in March, I had the luck to meet Gianluigi, the owner, and not only try several different flavours but also have a good conversation about his gelato philosophy. The gelato filled cannoli were really great. All flavours I tried, including pistaccio (a... More
