We were down at Villabate in Bensonhurst on Friday to pick up a giant gorgeously decorated Cassata for a dinner party and we sampled their gelato.They have 25 flavors...Alas! Life is too short. Best I've had outside of Italy. I had hazelnut and cassata and my husband had pistachio and straciatella. Wanted to try the amarena , peach and other fruit flavors, but even I have my limits. At 2 scoops for $2 how can you miss?
Have you ever tried making gelato at home?
