Gelato Dolce Vita

5251 E. Brown Road

(480) 329-2143 or

This Euro-style shop, run by Italian-born Walter Bergamaschi and his wife, Marti Printy — both were trained to make gelato near Bologna, Italy — will convince you it’s perfectly reasonable to eat gelato for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Traditional flavors are available, but innovative concoctions like chocolate habañero, lemongrass-cilantro, gorgonzola and walnut, and kiwi-chardonnay are especially mouthwatering. They also serve coffee drinks and make gelato cakes to order. Direct-from-Italy meats and cheeses, along with homemade pasta, are available in the adjoining deli/grocery.
