At Allegro il Gelato Naturale, two native Italians, one of whom is a graduate of Carpigiani Gelato University in Bologna, use old-world recipes to create fresh gelato daily. Their frozen treat is free of concentrates and artificial flavors, made instead from whole organic milk and natural stabilizers such as guar gum and hugs. These choice ingredients form both traditional and unusual flavors, including chocolate, custard, hazelnut, and mint ($3.50–$5 for a cup, $4.25–$5.75 for a cone). Allegro's treatmakers also prepare seasonal sorbets in flavors such as pear, apple, and kiwi, using only fresh fruit, real sugar, and mountain spring water. On colder days, sip a soothing hot chocolate ($2.50) or eye-opening espresso ($2).
