I’m still not 100 percent sure what the difference between ice cream and gelato is, only that gelato is better. Yeah, that sounds like a pretty hot take. But if you’ve been to Iorio’s you’ll know what I’m talking about.

With a collection of flavors ranging from the traditional to the surprising (lavender is good, I promise), you could get something new each time you go and never be disappointed. And I know how often you go. Because I know how often I go. And it’s a lot.

No matter what your 3 a.m self will tell you, not all dessert is created equal, and Iorio’s proves that point. From gelato to espresso to gelato / espresso (hello, affogatto!) Iorio’s is the closest thing to Italy this side of the Mississippi. At least I think it is. I’ve never been to Italy.
