Concierge.com's insider take:
Following yet another trip to Italy, Stephanie and John Reitano decided to remedy the lack of gelato in their lives by producing small batches of their own, using Pennsylvania produce and milk from grass-fed, hormone-free cows. The results have garnered national raves. Flavors rotate but pineapple mint, Turkish coffee, pistachio siciliano, and ginger sesame are always available. The cafés—one in the up-and-coming area east of Broad Street, and the other off Rittenhouse Square (117 S. 20th St.; 215-636-9250)—also stock an array of artisanal confections such as taffy-like caramels, vanilla and cinnamon marshmallows, and sugar-dusted Italian gelatine.
