Spring is definitely over but around here, gelaterias are pushing up like daisies. Of course, this is not a complaint—more like a cause for celebration. All those who wouldn’t mind sampling different cold and creamy Italian treats each night this summer, say “Aye.” Thank you.
One of the newer kids on the block is Bellissimo Gelato. Located in the same Murray strip mall as Sports Authority on 900 East, what Bellissimo lacks in curb appeal is made up in friendly faces and uncommonly fair prices. A packed-to-the-gills and overflowing small weighs in at $2.75.
Like many of their gelato-centric counterparts, Bellissimo’s local owners fell in love with the ice cream variety on an overseas trip, and decided Utah could use some Italian love. They took classes, learned how to import harder-to-find natural and Italian ingredients, and the rest is sensory overload history.
Some of Bellissimo’s flavors: almond, stracciatella, green apple, pink grapefruit, forrest berries, peanut butter and white chocolate. Bellissimo also serves up Italian sodas (a beloved summer treat around here). Try peach, frosted mint or blackberry.
