The assortment of flavors is great and the quality of Carlotta's gelato is second to none. Can't wait to return!

The experience is authentically Italian! The gelato and the coffee is second to none. It’s should be a mandatory stop if you are in Niagara-on-the-Lake!

I dont think a discount will be needed as the price is very reasonable and it is the best in town by far!
