There's a critical test they must pass, and so far only one venue -- Gelateria in the North End -- has measured up: Do they allow you to order two flavors in one dish (mezzo fragola e mezzo limone is my favorite), as all gelato shops in Italy do? Most importantly -- do they do this without charging you for an extra scoop (which you're not really getting?)
I'll let you know how it goes at Piattini ("little plates"), which offers Boston a new gelateria -- and more -- on Newbury Street. Check it out and let me know what you think! Is this the real deal?
Amandabout.town does NOT compromise when it comes to genuine gelato!
