Scoop wranglers at Piccomolo fashion fresh batches of gelato daily from all-natural ingredients such as fresh milk, which imbues the dessert with lower fat, calorie, and sugar content than its heavy-cream-laced archnemesis, ice cream. A glass display case houses a rotating display of 30 milk-based, fruit-based, and no-sugar-added gelatos selected from Piccomolo’s roster of 150 flavors such as peanut-butter cup, blackberry, and hazelnut. Tykes can finger-paint portraits of their favorite Winnie the Pooh characters with flavorful pigments from kid-size portions ($2.89), and adults collect two to four flavors in single small, medium, or large cups ($3.99–$5.99). Alternatively, customers can choose 6-or 8-inch gelato cakes in signature flavors such as fudge brownie and turtle cheesecake, or create custom cakes for special occasions such as birthday dinners or traditional Arbor Day food fights.
