Any Authentic Gelato in Chicago?

Matt R | Mar 24, 2006 04:30 PM

Hi, all,

I've just returned from a trip to Rome where I went ape over the gelato. Do we have ANYTHING like the real article in Chicago? I've tried at L'Appetito (Gold Coast), Caffe Gelato (Wicker Park), and Al Gelato (Franklin Park), and I'm sorry, but it's just not the same. The gelato I had in Rome was much denser, a lot less creamy and fatty, and far more intensely flavorful. Maybe it's not replicable here, but I'd love to find it if I could.
