We stopped in Pitango Gelato after lunch in Reston Town Center. The dark chocolate gelato was the best I've ever had! The chocolate was very dark but not bitter at all. I also had the pistachio. Just WOW!!! I looked them up when we got...More

This is great for an after dinner stroll to get a dessert and cup of coffee. The flavor options are plentiful with some unique combinations. The service is always friendly and efficient. In the summertime, be prepared for a line, but it's worth it!

Stopped here for a pick me up after returning on the Metro from D.C. Affogato which was espresso served over gelato was perfect. Their gelato was creamy and the combination was perfect. Parking in this complex is a bit of a pain

Good street food, not much to add. Yes, it's pretty expensive and fairly basic, but it works well. A nice place to hang out.

We have tried a number of their Gelatos. All have been excellent. The prices are high (over $4.00 a scoop) but worth the splurge.

The mojito gelato there changed my world - love this place! A little pricier than your average "ice cream" parlour but worth it if you love good gelato.

Their gelato is so good and rich. Great location in the Reston Town Center to sit outside or take a walk and enjoy the gelato.

Nothing fancy, just outstanding gelato. If available, have the hot chocolate poured over gelato. For gelato alone, nothing beats the dark chocolate/orange mixture.

Pitango Gelato creates authentic gelato focusing on classic Italian flavors rather than novelties or trends. Made with grass-fed organic milk and fresh organic fruit and nuts, our products contain no flavorings, no colorings, nor artificial ingredients of any kind. Pitango also takes its coffee very seriously. We use organic, single-estate beans roasted especially for us in small batches by a local boutique roaster.
