Austin has definitely caught on to the growing demand for gelato. I first started recognizing gelaterias around town about 3 years ago. I've been a loyal customer of both Teo and Gelatos for a few years now. Those two gelaterias are going to have to fight for our business now ("fight to the death") as Alex and I have discovered a new place just around the corner from our apartment. Piccomolo boasts creative flavors and creamy consistency (the most important characteristic of gelato in my book). We stopped by yesterday for a break while running errands. Alex had the toffee cheesecake/chocolate chip cook dough combo while I relished in life's simple pleasures by ordering raspberry and pannacotta. The interior was playful, yet subdued and very Italian chic. The gelato freezer even had a ticker running across it. I will be back...however, Teo is still numero uno as nutella and peanut butter nutella are two of their flavors.
Also, yay for Austin being so freakin' cool. I picked up a flyer at Piccomolo that advertised Austin's 1st Annual Ice Cream Festival. Dear sweet nectar, am I excited for that one. And the best part is that admission is FREE!
