The gelato is excellent, as is the brick-oven pizza. If I could stop there, I'd give La Gelateria 5 stars with exclamation points. Unfortunately, there are MAJOR service issues. I could overlook the hair in my gelato (yuck!)--once--accidents happen. What I can' t overlook is that they claim to be making pizzas but seldom actually do it. They quit early--up to an hour before closing--and, now that they have expanded the hours to open at 1PM, they don't bother starting until 4PM. Or so they say, after that last (5th!!) disappointment, I haven't bothered to go back. The owner needs to get involved and take care to get some interested, customer oriented staff. And if the pizza hours are going to be significantly different from the gelato hours they need to specify that on the door--anything else is false advertising. BTW, my telling them about the hair was met with a shrug. As I said, very disappointing service from a place that could so easily be excellent.

Pros: Excellent gelato, excellent pizza

Cons: If only they ACTUALLY made the pizza once in a while

"Wow, this really is like the gelato we had in Rome!!" - one of the common remarks made by first-time patrons of this authentic gelateria located in the business district of Cedar-Fairmount in Cleveland Heights.
La Gelateria has been churning out one of Italy's most seductive delicacies, gelato (homemade Italian ice cream with more flavor yet LESS FAT than traditional ice cream!!!), since 2002. Offering more than 30 traditional gelato flavors, including pistachio, tiramisu, gianduia, stracciatella, grapefruit, hazelnut, almond and many more, each guest is sure to find a flavor to tantalize their taste buds. Most of the gelato is all-natural and, as stated earlier, all is less fattening and overall healthier than traditional ice cream. Best of all it is all made fresh within the Cedar-Fairmount location. They also over a wide-variety of dairy-free, water-based Sorbets. Enjoy a cup of gelato or sorbet and a nice cappuccino in the comfortable loft located above the serving area!!

P.S. Rumor is they are installing a wood-burning pizza oven for yet another authentic delicacy: authentically-fresh, thin-crust Italian pizza!!
