The gelato is delicious. No complaints there..... But......the scoops are sooo tiny that I really did not feel that they are worth the price they charge. Will research other Gelato options next time we visit the area.

This was a great find on a 95 degree evening. The blueberry lemon gelato was great. My kids loved trying small samples of many flavors which the staff encouraged. Definitely a nice selection of flavors at a good quality.

Splendoras Gelato is amazing! Of the many options for dessert on the Downtown Mall I would always recommend Splendoras above the rest. They have a great range from traditional flavors, like Gianduia (Chocolate Hazelnut), to adventurous, like Strawberry Pink Peppercorn. Don't miss trying it out...More
