This tiny gem, tucked away in the West End, is the best spot for gelato or wine. Lots of flavor variety in both. Ciska makes all flavors of gelato, so you never know what you are going to find. We've had roasted almond (SO GOOD), paw paw (a rare treat), avocado (wow) and many others: ALL DELICIOUS! Her wine choices... More

A food tour in Rome taught us how to differentiate real gelato from the fake stuff, and no surprise! This is the real stuff. A small bit of Italy in Winston Salem.

Craving some ice-cream on a torrential rainy windy Saturday we googled ice-cream and found this little gem only a mile back on our drive. We did a u-turn, saw our target and went inside.

Best gelato ever - served by genial low key owner. Flavors vary a little over time, but all are wonderful especially the pistachio. Seating mostly inside with a couple seats on sidewalk. Located in fun, funky area across from historic Hanes Park on a block with high end thrift shops, actors' studio & good pizza place.

Great flavors and really fresh! Must try!!! Really just a hole in the wall but worth the trip. They sell wine too! Try the biscotti gelato if they have it!

Delicious home made gelato made by the owner herself. Excellent selection of flavors which changes frequently. My only problem is that I don't get to come as often as I would like.

This quaint shop has been a welcome spot in the West End for a number of years now. With a regular rotation of traditional favorites and more unusual and daring flavors, this little gelato stop is the closest thing I've ever had to the perfection of good European gelato. Heck, it's not close to as good, it IS as good.

Great gelato. Changing and seasonal favors. Some of the best I've had since Italy. Outside seating a plus.

Love this gelato! All of the fruit flavors are lactose free and are so refreshing! The other flavors are amazing as well! The owner is very personable and makes all of the gelato in house with fresh, local ingredients.
