Don't bother asking Chef Gianluigi what recipe he uses to craft the creamy desserts at Old Town Dolci Gelati Café. That authentic Italian recipe has been passed down from one generation to the next in his family for many years, and he's not about to hand it over to anyone who asks. However, he does the next best thing: scoops you a cup of gelato crafted according to the time-tested recipe.
On a warm day in Old Town, stop into the gelateria to see which inventive gelatos are in the case that afternoon. They change regularly, so feel free to sample a few before you make your final decision. You can expect to see options such as toasted coconut, dark chocolate, and salted caramel, as well as a sorbet or two. Enjoy your rich gelato solo or with a hot shot of espresso (affogato). You can even slurp it up in milkshake form.
