Gelato Sampling in San Diego

Thanks Carrie, In fact I did go to Pappalecco, but my account of it ended up on the proverbial cutting room floor. No Christmas cookies for my editors this year. : ) This is what I wrote: “You have to try the one they name after the shop,” explained Patrick, walking out of Little Italy’s Pappalecco with his cup of “Pappalecco” flavor, pistachio, and vanilla gelati. (pappalecco.com; 619-238-4590) (Small- $3.75) The vanilla fell short of Gelato Vero’s -- too sweet, not enough vanilla flavor. But the Pappalecco: chocolate with an amaretto base, was a favorite for us both. “Amaretto is a dangerous flavor because it’s so strong,” said Patrick, “but this has the right balance of amaretto and chocolate.” The pistachio topped the three for me. “Strong nutty pistachio flavor -- it’s dancing around my mouth,” I exclaimed. “I like that it’s not that horrible green color,” added Patrick. “I also like that this cafe has true sidewalk seating- no cages around tables on the sidewalk.”
