Check out this new (OK, maybe about 6 month old)dessert spot in the Pearl (1105 NW Marshall. 225.9300)
* Their Gelatos are excellent! You really taste the fresh ingredients they are using. (They are very liberal with the tasting spoons, so you can get a good idea of their choices before commiting.)
* Desserts are a work of art, presentation-wise, and pretty good taste wise.
* The decor is neat: Designed to look like you are sitting outdoors in an Italian village, under a large olive tree (yes, it's a fake - but a very good one)
* The espresso drinks and coffee are good.
Overall, it's a great place to go with your date after/before a movie, or just to relax with the newspaper under the olive tree. (Early risers can stop by for a small, but nice continental breakfast selection.)
