frozen slush from heaven
When last in Roma I was wowed by the gelato. Forget 31 flavors, Baskin-Robbins, my favorite places had somewhere between 70 and 100 flavors displayed, each with a sample of fruit lying atop the frozen confection. (Be sure to visit Gelateria Della Palma (Via della Maddalena, 20/23, tel. 06.68.80.67.52) and Fiocco di Neve, Gelateria Artigianale (Via del Pantheon, 51, tel. 06.67.86.025). You won’t be sorry.)
Back to San Francisco, though. Here in the Castro we’re about to get another of the Gelateria Naia stores; the others are Berkeley and Walnut Creek. (We visit the Berkeley location with the kids frequently.)
Today the new refrigerator units were delivered. (This location used to be a Ben & Jerry’s, but evidently the entire inside had to be gutted to get the look and feel the Naia people wanted.) I’m excited. The entire family is looking forward to having excellent gelato nearby.
