What a pleasure to have such a good gelateria within walking distance of Comestiblog's world headquarters. This Windsor Terrace storefront dishes up tempting gelati, sorbetti, ices, ice creams, and shakes. Eight of their nearly two-dozen tantalizing gelati are homemade (please see the menu below). I'm eager to try the Amarena and the Cremolata.
The consistency of the Ciao Bella sorbetti varies from smooth to grainy. Flavors such as passion fruit, blueberry, and mango are typically sweeter than I'd like. The blood orange and pomegranate (a small cup of which is pictured below), on the other hand, are standouts—especially when combined.
With cold weather approaching, Lia's will begin serving hot soups October 1st. They're soliciting suggestions. Any ideas?
