Good experience with pie at Al Gelato (BH)

  • 3

Hi all! I just wanted to share my positive experience with Al Gelato on Robertson....my grandpa's favorite dessert is lemon meringue pie, and I though that one of the ridiculously huge pies at Al Gelato would be a great conversation piece for his 80th B-Day party. Boy, was I right! And every step of the process was positive!

Ordering over the phone was no problem, the staff member was friendly and helpful. Hours and pricing were confirmed.

When I arrived, the pie was ready and was promptly brought to me. Both staff members smiled and seemed happy to present the dessert. It was gorgeous, and larger than I recalled. There was easily 4 inches EACH of curd and meringue. And the diameter was crazy. It was nicely boxed with a piked top. I was thrilled that the staff member offered to carry the pie out to my car. When we reached the car, the employee gave me cutting and serving tips!

The pie tasted great, and was a HUGE hit at the party. It held up nicely; 90 minutes after being removed the fridge it looked great (though heavily devoured). We love a strong, tart flavor and were satisfied.

Recommended!

      $65. Seems like a lot, but I would say it was worth it...it probably fed 25.

    2. I quite like their ginormous apple pie with the hot caramel sauce.
