The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as gelato. Win over anyone with today's deal: for $5, you get $12 worth of fresh gelato at Dolcetti Gelato. Your Groupon is good at both the 900 South 900 East and Park City locations of the husband- and wife-owned gelateria.
Like the iced-delight-swirled Italian artisans, Dolcetti’s all-natural gelato is made from scratch and prepared with fresh, local, and seasonal fruits and ingredients. Flavors rotate daily in Dolcetti's repertoire of more than 70 gelatos. Stick with classics such as vanilla bean and chocolate, or wake from dreams of cows balancing papayas on their noses with inspired culinary concoctions such as lavender-honey gelato churned with home-raised bee nectar ($3.25–$4.75 for a scoop). Or, spicy up dessert with a sample of jalapeño chocolate. With an abundance of fresh fruit ripening in the coming months, expect fresh flavors such as forest berry, lemon, and apricot. Dolcetti will also be rolling out fat- and dairy-free sorbettos.
If your hands are too busy pounding out Rachmaninoff's Third Concerto on a steel drum to hold a waffle cone ($0.75 extra) or a cup of the sweet treat, milk any flavor into a shake ($5.95) and sip it through a straw. Or, on cool evenings, quell warm-food cravings with one of Dolcetti Gelato's sweet or savory crêpes ($2.95 and up) or paninis ($5.95).
- Check out the exquisite flavors, such as pistachio, pomegranate, chocolate mole and crocantino al rum, to name just a few. This ain’t your grammy’s ice cream. Dolcetti makes its gelato and sorbetto by hand using fresh, locally grown fruits and berries and milk from family-run dairies. It’s an edible art form, waiting for your lips and tongue to melt it. – City Weekly
- As good as anything you can find in Rome or Florence (and I've tried lots of them!) Dolcetti's gelatos are smooth, intense, fresh, and creative. Never made from a mix like many of the others. – Bill McGee, Urbanspoon
