There’s gelato, and then there’s Ciao Bella Gelato. Jesenia’s Goodie Bag travels to Little Italy for a courtyard celebration at the former St Patrick’s Old Cathedral School for Ciao Bella’s 30th anniversary. Outside accordion maestro serenaded gelato devotees, followed by an in-house DJ spinning a mix of hot tracks. Fun décor included life-sized bronzed animal floaties at the step-n-repeat and a decked-out pearl and starfish kiddie pool. Dozens of dessert-bitten guests were salivating at the mounds of gelato goodness, from Key Lime Graham to Lemon Zest, Blood Orange, Tahitian Vanilla, Mango, Pistachio and my personal favorite, Belgium Chocolate, all packed with pure and intense flavor… but don’t just take my word for it, experience this 17-time sofi Gold Award Winner for yourself.
