We stopped in for a quick snack. I had the Lemon Chai, the lemon was mild, but with hints of savory chai, it was excellent. My husband had strawberry lemonade (I think it was) and he was very satisfied with his choice. Very open, clean...More

Stracciatella is the single most iconic flavor of gelato, but this gelato place didn't have it. The other three flavors I tried were serviceable.

After trying several flavors, I settled on the Bananas Foster. It was superb. All of the 4-5 flavors I sampled were very good. I've eaten gelato in Florence at a place that was said to be one of the best in Italy, and Ceo's isn't...More

Thank you so much for your review! Bananas Foster is one of my all-time favorites! We are so happy to share all of our flavors so we just can’t help giving endless samples :)

Great flavors, great service! The lady that worked there was so nice, letting us sample a couple different flavors, then combining 3 of them in the smallest size bowl because we couldn’t decide haha would definitely recommend the coffee cookies and cream!!!

I love Gelato. I love on-premise, handmade, uniquely flavored Gelato the best. Whoever creates the flavors here has a killer imagination. I had the Chai Latte and Mocha Hazelnut Gelatos with an amazingly rich Chocolate Ginger Sorbetto (dairy free). All three fit in the small...More

Most cones aren't worth eating, in my opinion, but here they make their own and they're absolutely delicious. The gelato has excellent texture, but the flavors should be more intense. However, the staff will cheerfully let you try several kinds, so you always know what...More

Since returning from Europe, most Gelato fails in comparison, but not this place. The three flavors I enjoyed most (Yes they let you sample, and yes, I tried more than my fair share) were Blueberry/Lavender, Orange/Hibiscus and Mango/Carrot/Ginger! And the best news- you do not...More

Nice staff. Extremely clean and very organized. The bathrooms are super clean. I can't complain about this place. I definitely recommend it. I got the ginger pear, my fiancé son got the watermelon and my fiancé got the lime with blueberries. Delicious!!! Delicioso 😋

They make the gelato in house and it's absolutely delicious. This small shop has an industrial vibe and was an oasis on a hot summer afternoon. At least a dozen flavors were offered and you can ask for a taster before your final decision. We...More
