The owner is from Venice & her shop definitely is as authentic as you can get. The flavors vary slightly & the last time I was there they had a delightful pumpkin gelato. You must try it ... very interesting mix of flavors. Reminiscent of pumpkin pie, but better! They also make the riso (rice) gelato, which is reminiscent of rice pudding. Free samples are available.
Both the gelato and the pastries are delicious. I recently took a friend from Italy here & she was very impressed. Also, their sidewalk tables are a great place to sit, enjoy your gelato, and people watch.
