Sweet Gelato Overload

Sure, La Casa Gelato is a merry Italian-style ice-cream parlor, full of happy faces and intoxicating aromas. And yes, the shop--going strong since 1982--knows how to whip up a mean swirl of soft, smooth, tingle-on-the-tongue gelato, produced using tried-and-true methods from the Boot; and, yes, its handmade waffle cones derive from an old Abruzzo recipe lovingly tended across generations. La Casa Gelato even makes its own gelato cakes for any and all occasions.

Here's the thing, though: The place boasts more than 200 gelato flavors on hand at a time. The variety--which includes non-dairy, sugar-free, and other specialized options--is enough to blow your mind and your taste buds. As you drift around sampling, panic may set in: How on Earth are you going to choose?
