Naming your gelato joint after the Italian word for “Master” could be considered a bold, daring, nervy … even audacious move.
But sample a scoop or two of the smooth-and-chilly delicacy at Maestro’s in Provo, and your skeptical attitude might start to melt away. (Pun intended.) With a myriad of flavors that include everything from watermelon to mascarpone, and yogurt to mango, it’s possible that Maestro’s serves up some of the best gelato this side of the Mississippi, if not Milan.
Sure, it lacks the luster of pretty Italian palazzos e fontanas, but Maestro’s has the streets of Provo, Utah looking quite magnifico. You can get a single scoop for $2.49 or a double scoop for $3.49. Every extra scoop up from there is about $1 more. You can even opt for a homemade waffle cone for 75 cents. Fancy hot chocolates are said to be coming soon, too. And we’ll probably need it.
