Unlike origami cranes, gelato is made by hand, looks exquisite, and never steals your wallet when you look away. Taste what your first kiss would taste like if it were ice cream with today's deal. For $5, you get $12 worth of refreshing gelato and bistro fare at Pino Gelato in Dublin.
Made with natural milk, minimal cream, and a whole lot less air than ice cream, the Italian-born gelato also boasts fewer calories and no artificial flavoring to get in the way of its smooth, rich flavor fireworks. Pino Gelato's 20 gelato genres include minty chocolate, coconut, Reese's & cream, rhum & caffe, tiramisu, stracciatella, Monica Bellucci, and more. Gelato grabbers can transport their treat by cup ($2.50 for 2 ounces, $5.95 for 8 ounces) or cone ($2.75 for kid size, $5.50 for waffle). And while filling your pockets with scoops of gelato is a fun way to ruin pants, the friendly staff will gladly provide storage for to-go gelato ($10.95 a pint, $16.95 a quart).
Though most know the establishment for its more-gelid goodies, Pino Gelato also provides a one-of-a-kind bistro item made famous by a recent Food Network appearance on Unwrapped—the pizza cone, a hunger-halting hybrid that renders the already pretty portable pizza even more portable by wrapping all the ingredients of a pizza slice in whole-wheat dough baked fresh daily in a specialized oven. Each flaky cone cyclones up varieties such as traditional cheese ($3.25), Hawaiian style ($3.50), and meat lover’s ($3.50). Their extreme portability makes pizza cones the meal of choice for astronauts, gypsies, and Olympic torchbearers.
Pino Gelato shows the same worshipful deference to its customers (especially the one that's clearly Odin in disguise) as it does to the ground they walk on, which is why the gelateria's Going Green program cuts down on environmental wear and tear with an abundance of biodegradable serving materials and recyclable cookware. The number of light bulbs has been reduced, and all the fluorescents have been replaced with natural light bulbs. In the summer months, Pino Gelato even sets its thermostat to a modest temperature in order to cut back on energy and increase the cooling contrast of each lick.

- Excellent variety of flavors. A little pricier than your run-of-the-mill ice cream place, but definately worth it! We all got medium sizes and that allowed for three different flavors, which is great for the undecided on flavors. – flagplaid, TripAdvisor
