Back when I was in high school there used to be more than one of the Gelato Classico in the City and I think it is a shame this is the last one left, but I am thankful that at least we have it! My favorite flavor is ""Copa Mista"" which means mixed cup. It is a combination of Pistachio, Vanilla and Chocolate. I have tried over the years to re-create the flavor by ordering all three in one cup at varies ice cream shops around the world (even in Italy!) and it's just not the same. I am pregnant now and woke up this morning thinking I just might die if I don't get my Copa Mista. Lucky for me there is this one last shop left in the City. As soon as it opens, you'll see me there, ordering a cup for now and a couple pints for later!

I really love this place -- it's my favorite secret spot in North Beach. Having worked in an ice cream shop awhile back, I know how crowded a good spot can get when people know about it, but whenever I go here I'm the only one there. Hey, no worries -- just means less wait before some coppa mista or peanut butter chocolate. Great place to go after a meal, or any time, really.

...so why is it that every time i'm there it's empty and they only need one counterperson?? is it because it's above powell near washington square park on union street instead of smack on COLUMBUS like the Ben and Jerry's-- they always surprise me with flavours like pear chardonnay, but you can always rely on chocolate and mocha, too. an excellent pit stop after a long day of sightseeing. texture, flavour and the most superb sugar cones.
