Editorial Review – Known for gelatos and sorbettos, this small cafe also serves panini sandwiches and salads.
Authentic! – I love the Gelato Cafe. You are able to sample a variety of gelato flavors before you decide, and they are able to fit at least a couple flavors into the smallest cup :) I had never had anything comparable in America before moving to Raleigh and eating here....just like the gelato in Italy!
A Real Treat – We're lucky here in Raleigh to have a place like this. Tasty, authenic Italian gelato in a good variety of flavors. The owner personally makes sure all the gelato is of the highest quality and she makes sure you get the best.
Usually, when I go out to eat, I skip dessert, then head over here for Gelato instead!
A refreshing taste of Italy in Raleigh – How flavorful! The gelato here is more taste, less guilt. Everything is good, I haven't tried the food since I have gone here only for a snack or dessert, never a meal. Though parking is less than ideal, this treat is well worth it! If you haven't come by you are really missing somrthing.
Great Food – Great sandwiches, at least the toscano. Real authentic Italian gelato, try the stracciatella or the tiramisu. Great service, everyone was nice and let me try as many samples as I wanted. Parking stinks, but it's well worth the walk.
Awful food – I cannot comment on the ice cream. My parents and I stopped in for a sandwich and some drinks. The bread was soooo dry and there was so little dressing on the sandwich that the watered down drinks were required just to swallow. I did notice that no one else got food- just ice cream, so that was probably my mistake. Don't plan on hanging out there, either- 3 teeny tables cramped in a corner inside and noisy traffic with exhaust fumes are outsdie.
The treat this side of Italy – Silvia's Gelato is unsurpassed in this area. I have yet to experience anything quite like her mango, watermelon, or melon gelato. This is an experience for the taste buds. I highly recommend this place and it's open late for a before bed treat.
8.5- Ridiculously Low Score – Best Ice Cream in Raleigh, w/o a doubt. Silvia's offerings are always flavorful and fresh. I've been to Italy a number of times and Silvia's gelato and sorbetto are the best I've had in the USA. If you prefer preservative-rich frozen lard, buy Food Lion brand.
