4.5 out of 5 stars I had a medium of the soy "ice cream" today and it was very good. I had 3 flavors: Hazelnut = 5, Peanut Butter Chip = 5, Scharffenberger (chocolate) = 3. I also tried a couple sorbets that were good to excellent too. They had 4 * soy ice cream, 12 * sorbet, ~20 * gelato. My server was very good, and they are generous with the free samples. I highly recommend the 2 nut flavors; skip chocolate. greg

3 out of 5 stars I tried rum/chocolate vegan based sorbet. - heavy on the rum and didn't have much taste. I then sampled the dark chocolate gelato (with dairy) and it blew my socks off. Vegan-2; Vegetarian-5 veg4life

5 out of 5 stars This is a great place when you want a real treat. The gelato is wonderful: creamy and delicious. Everything is presented beautifully- fresh fruit or nuts on top of each flavor to show what's in it. kmeldrum
