Ever since my husband and I returned from Italy, we've been searching the Bay Area for sorbet as creamy and pure in flavor as the sorbet we had in Rome. I'm happy to report that we've finally found it! The sorbet at Almare, near the downtown Berkeley BART station, is unbelievably delicious. So far, I've tried pear, strawberry, mango, grapefruit and a flavor called Ace, which is a mix of carrot, orange and lemon. All have been clean and true to the flavor of their respective fruits.
I've been too happy eating the sorbet to try the gelato, but my husband says that it is equally delicious.
