plenty of selection to choose from and very friendly staff! Me and my wife just got back to Italy, and it was so nice to find an authentic gelato shop in my home town. The texture is so smooth and wonderful! It's now my favorite dessert place of all time when I'm in the downtown area

Pros: best pistacchio gelato in all of west coast

Cons: wish there were more locations

Incredible ice-cream, great service, simply the best! Have been here too many times to count and they are consistently the best you can find anywhere. Love the peach gelato, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm!

I first wandered in here after a long day at the Pike Place Market. I went to Italy a few years back and couldn't stop thinking about the gelato available on every corner. I had tried some other gelato around town but nothing compared to Bottega Italiana! The flavour is so powerful, the texture is so creamy and smooth. Try the strawberry, the pieces will just burst in your mouth! I asked one of their employees why their gelato was so good and they said that it was because they only use proven Italian recipes for each of their flavours. If you can't find it in Italy, you won't find it there. And, oh, the espresso is great too!

Pros: Best taste and texture, Good Coffee

Cons: Small seating area, No Credit Cards

I love Bottega Italiana's gelato. For that matter I really enjoy their espresso, too. The first thing that caught me about their gelato, though, was it's texture. I couldn't believe the smoothness! After the texture the flavor awoke and I was in love. Seriously, it's amazing that so much pure, unadulterated taste can be packed onto such a tiny spoon. Actually, this place has gelato just like in Italy, not that ice-crystal-ed stuff one often finds while trying "gelato" in the US. As for Bottega's espresso, it is lovely and pairs excellently with the gelato. I especially like the dairy gelati (such as chocolate or panna cotta) with the espresso over it (ask for an affogato, they know what to do).
The summers there bring a lot of fruit flavors to the gelato case. I really recommend stopping in during late summer for the watermelon and peach...oh, and the mango is usually around during mid summer.
The one thing about the fruit flavors is that Bottega actually uses fresh fruit so they only carry those flavors when the fruit's in season. Kind of a bummer when you want mango in December, but at least it's all natural. Oh, I do recommend experimenting with your gelati pairings. Try the pear with the caramel, or the coffee with the panna cotta...terrific!

Pros: the staff here seem very friendly and helpful. (also I enjoy their music selection)

Cons: parking's not so convenient so take the bus, also bring cash as they don't accept cards

Discover the cool, sweet taste of Italy at this tiny shop just south of Pike Place Market. It's a favorite of Seattle-ites and visitors alike. The gelato, bursting with seasonal fresh fruit and berry flavors, is made daily in small…
