Like an R&B love song or Rick Moranis’s shrunken kids, gelato is remarkable for the smooth way in which it rolls off the tongue. Swish a mouthful with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of gelato, coffee, and more at Gelati in Naperville.
Gelati specializes in rich, creamy, Italian-style gelato, as well as gelato cakes, sorbet, and espresso. Gelati's team of creamed-dessert buffs creates more than 60 flavors of gelato—20 or more available to taste daily. Compare the nuttiness of a cup of pistachio with a cone full of hazelnut ($2.95–$4.95), or feast on frozen fruits with banana, cherry, melon, and mango gelati. Since gelato has less fat than traditional ice cream, taking home a pint of rich, custardy zabione gelato ($7.50) won't cause dieters any unnecessary guilt, even when they melt it down to use as salad dressings and sports drinks. Gelati also serves up peppy, percolated coffee ($1.25) and cappuccino ($2.75), and for fans of caffeinated sugar rushes, they will even pour a shot of espresso over a cup of gelato for $3.75.
Yelpers give Gelati an average of four stars:
The staff at Gelati serves frosty scoops of more than 70 flavors of creamy house-made gelato, each containing less fat than ice cream. The flavors rotate more frequently than a rotisserie chicken with a time-share vacation home, with 20 saccharine varieties available at a time, including lemon, pistachio, and chocolate. Warm cups of coffee and espresso complement cold treats and cakes amid salmon-colored walls adorned with framed scenic paintings.
