Fill me in on Al Gelato history

Mike G | May 27, 200209:39 PM

So I was at Treasure Island on Saturday and saw they had gelato from Al Gelato in Franklin Park. Seemed to me like that was a name I had heard before here, so I bought some and it is indeed wonderful.

But doing a search via Google I turn up only tantalizing hints of an "original" Al Gelato on North Avenue and so on. So what's the story? Is this some pretender, good as it is?
