Gelato in/around downtown Nashville?

Is Savarino's my best bet?

Any leads appreciated. Thanks.

  1. There's legato gelato on Villa Place in the Edge Hill area...probably closer to downtown than Savarino's.

      Thanks, that actually works better as we'll be at Vanderbilt.

        They are both close to Vanderbilt -- Savario's to the south, Legato Gelato to the east -- but I've heard amazing things about Legato. That would be my first pick. Elsewhere in town I like the gelato at Porta Via, and there's Bravo Gelato as well. We also have several good options for American ice cream, like Jeni's (also at Hot & Cold), Pied Piper, & Mike's. Also check out the awesome paletas at Las Paletas (also also available at Hot & Cold).

          Thanks. Legato Gelato looks perfect.

            Went to Legato Gelato. Had the pumpkin, pistachio, and dark chocolate. All were very good but for some reason it felt like the gelato was too cold so that the flavors were a bit muted.

            Regardless it was a good treat for a rather muggy afternoon. Who knew Jamaican gelato could be so good.
