The weather is heating up, which means it’s time to start scoping out all the local hotspots for frozen treats. If you ask Baltimore locals for recommendations, you may well hear the name Pitango Gelato coming up again and again.
This popular Fells Point gelateria specializes in simplicity: it offers gelato, coffee, and friendly service. Regulars suggest that you combine two flavors in the regular size cup, and three flavors in the large (you might try combining one of the creamy dairy-based flavors like hazelnut with something tart and tangy, like the bright pink rhubarb gelato). This shop offers plenty of classic flavors for traditionalists, such as the rich, dark chocolate fudge, as well as a few options for folks who want to broaden their palates, such as the smoky-sweet cardamom and the refreshing, minty mojito. No matter what you pick, Yelp reviewers say it’s bound to be a success.
