We had an excellent Italian dinner at Venezia’s (previous report), and decided to walk one block to this place for dessert. If you want real, Italian desserts in New Orleans, this is the place to go. They’ve been perfecting their craft here since 1905, so I think they’ve had enough time to get their act together.
If you want to sample the Gelato, they’ll give you a taste on one of those tiny spoons. We tried the Strawberry Cheesecake and the Praline. Delicious. If I thought I could get away with it I would have walked down the counter eating a little spoon of each one, said “Thank you”, and left. But I thought better of it.
We decided on a slice of the Amaretto Cheesecake and Spumoni. Both were outstanding!
Come here and indulge. You won’t regret it.
