What You'll Get
Like magma and dreams, gelato is a semisolid—neither solid enough to build a house upon nor liquid enough to feed to a thirsty sparrow. Taste tantalizing viscosity with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of authentic Italian gelato at Gelazzi Gelato Italiano Café. This Groupon is valid at both Gelazzi locations in Fort Collins and Highlands Ranch.
Nominated for ABC 7's Best Ice Cream Shop five years in a row, Gelazzi whips up 34 flavors of gelato fresh every morning, using fresh fruits and dry ingredients carefully culled and imported from Italy. Introduce your flavor receptacles to caramel from Avellino, rich chocolate from Torino, or lemons from Aversa, available by the scoop ($3.75) or in a belgian-waffle bowl ($6.99). Gelazzi's fluffy frozen treats are also made using 2% fresh milk rather than cream, making it less fattening and giving the unique flavors room to dance in your mouth.
Aside from its scoopable bounty, Gelazzi is known for pioneering the gelatini, a combination of fine liqueurs and gelato more indulgent than bobbing for gold in a champagne-filled birdbath. The slushy, sippable margarita mingles lemon or lime gelato with tequila, Cointreau, and amaretto ($6.95), and the Brandy Alexander sweetens up the teeth with vanilla gelato, brandy, dark crème de cacao, and an insistence that you call him “Al” ($6.95). Customers can also get their fix with spiked coffee drinks such as the Gelazzi Javatini ($5.99) or a nonalcoholic, but equally intoxicating, gelato Italia-milkshake ($4.99 for small).
- My husband, children, and I loved it. Every flavor we tried was wonderful. I would highly recommend it. – Betsy F., Yelp, 11/25/2008
- Been a huge fan ever since it had opened a few years back, and when i lived in the Northern Colorado area I had gone almost weekly year round for some delicious gelato. – Shane R., Yelp, 7/12/2010
