    Thanks, Idas. Not that that my waistline really needs a gelato place so close to me, but it's still nice to have it there!

      Hey, on the upside, sweater season has arrived.... :)
      Just bring a buddy and split a treat, only 1/2 the indulgence can still sweeten up a gloomy day.

        Yay, excellent smoothest long espresso and perfect and fresh Feuillette au Framboise....mmmmm.
        So light, not too sweet, almost felt like it had no calories....nam nam nam.
        I wish that they would make some savory stuff like mini foccicia.
        Welcome to the hood!!

          Sampled some of their wares: baci di dama, cannoli and a nutella bombe (cream puff with nutella pastry cream - read somewhere he makes his own nutella). Fillings were incredibly light with a hint of sweetness. Apparently, everything is made in-house.

          They store their gelati in pozzetti - stainless steel wells with lids - this minimizes air and light and slows down the changing structure of the gelato after it is made.

          The chef/owner(?) gave a me a sample of homemade foccacia with grilled vegetables - said they will be introducing some savoury items soon. Yum.

      Darn, typing too fast. VentiSette NOT VentSette in case folks were googling the location.

        Tried their chocolate and vanilla gelato and they were amazing....and I have tried a lot of gelato places! Can't wait for them to add onto their selection in the next couple of weeks as the weather warms up....pistachio and coffee here I come!

        Have also tried their croissants and cookies and have been really impressed. Best cappucino in the area right now...
