This is hands down the best gelato ever! I've had friends that have visited Italy an California and they say that il Dolce has the best gelato they've ever tried. It's fresh, homemade, and a cozy atmosphere! Don't look any further, this is where you need to go for gelato! If you've never tried gelato, you are missing out!

This place has charm and character! I enjoy taking my children by for a treat here! The Gelato is always fresh and well presented. The staff is great here! They are very kind to children and patient when the kids want to try several flavors! We love it here.

The owners take pride in their gelato and spent time learning how to make it really well. There are lots of unique flavors and they change all the time. I'm happy to support this local business.

This little local family owned shop is absolutely killer! I want to eat it all! The Gelato is so smooth and so tasty. I wish I could move the whole shop back to my home state with me. I'm in love. And the staff is so very friendly and the shop is so cute. This is a must go to... More

I've traveled extensively and had gelato all over Italy over the years, and this simply isn't gelato. The texture is completely wrong. This is more similar to Braum's icecream. The flavors are good, but it gets two stars for not being actual gelato.

May I ask what flavor you had? We have been hand making our gelato for 9 years and haven't ran into this before. Did you have a sorbetti? That definitely is not the same consistency as gelati. Email me directly at nick@ildolcegelato.com More

For those of us who are allergic to dairy, an ice cream shop that has an alternative to dairy is a godsend. That's why I'm so glad to have this store in Norman, although it's such a temptation. Their selection of sorbets is limited, but they always have had lemon, my favorite.

This place has really good gelato and the variety is great. My favorite flavors are Cappuccino and Cookies and Cream. Take advantage of the free samples to find a flavor you like. It is a little expensive, but in my opinion, worth it.

My wife is a gelato addict. Any time we travel we have to stop in whichever city and get gelato. We have had some really really good gelato in places like Washington DC, and some really bad in Tennessee. This ranks right in the middle. My favorite thing to get is Affogato, they are supposed to take Italian hot chocolate... More
