Start your list of gelatos to try -- now.
Gelato shops seem to come and go pretty quickly, but the ones that stick around prove their worth with smooth, creamy, cold treats that are so decadent and unique they can transport you to Italy with one bite. The array of flavors, each with its own decorative flair, make gelato as aesthetically pleasing as it is tasty. Flowers, biscotti, cut fruit, and ladyfingers can all be spotted atop a mound of the frozen treat, depending on the flavor. If you're not ready for a scoop or two now, a stop into any of the seven spots on our list is sure to make you an instant convert.

Gelato with a punch of whiskey flavor at That's Amore.
Marrazo That's Amore
While That's Amore specializes in all sorts of Italian confections, the large case of authentic gelatos is the reason this North Scottsdale spot is a must-visit no matter where you live in the Valley. However, our favorite gelato flavor from That's Amore is a less traditional take. The whiskey flavor has a kick of liquory goodness in its sweet caramel drizzle, perfectly combining dessert with a night cap.

The luscious roasted almond gelato at Gelato Spot.
Gelato Spot
With several locations around Phoenix, Chandler, and Scottsdale, Gelato Spot spreads its sweet, sweet love all around town, making it super-convenient to drop in as much as you want. The roasted almond flavor is slightly salty and savory, with a good nutty flavor to balance out the typically creamy and sweet gelato base. We also love the one-of-a-kind, limited edition flavors that Gelato Spot currently features all made by local chefs.
