    Thank you all so much. Will do a taste comparison of J-P and Enoteca. I love salted caramel so we may just go for that. Thanks for the heads up Debbie W on the type of restaurant.
    We are staying on the strip w/o a car, so I don't know if we will make it to Le Golosita but you will have to report back kjs.

      See today's Las Vegas Weekly "Best Bites" column at http://www.lasvegasweekly.com/content.... The reviewer ate at a place called Le Golosita. The reviewer states that it serves "without a doubt, the Valley’s best gelato."

      OK, that's an easy claim to make. Has anyone tried this place?

        i've been meaning to ...it's the newest place on the "eastern corridor " ...there are geez...7-10 food places in a 3 mile stretch off the 215 fwy on eastern ( technically, it's henderson, nv ) places like patsy grimaldi's, white chocolate grill, la golosita ,etc ....la golosita is supposed to be a combo deli/bakery / restaurant ....i will try on monday ( i'm behind schedule - i was supposed to try david burke or aquaknox this last week but i was sick )

        i will try the gelato but i am not an expert ...though ...my fav gelato was at a place at the entrance to the ponte vecchio ( sp ) in florence, italy ....spectacular !!!

        i'll let you know

          Le Golosita's deli/bakery where you can get the geleato to go is gorgeous, but when I went there a week ago, the flavors of gelato were VERY limited! It was at 9pm, for what it's worth. They did a tasty cannoli, studded with candied citrus rind.

          Best gelato for me? At The Venetian, the 2 different gelato places they have are wonderful. I am addicted to the cinnamon one so much!

        Enoteca San Marco (Venetian). Try salted caramel! I believe B&B Ristorante shares gelato making facilities with Enoteca, in which case B&B is another option.

          Ooh, good recommendation. In case the OP doesn't know, J-P Patisserie is a take-out kind of place, whereas Enoteca San Marco is a sit-down restaurant. However you can go just for gelato, we did.

            Jean-Philippe Patisserie in the Bellagio.
