Pitango Gelato opened their first shop in the Fells Point neighborhood of Baltimore. They have since expanded adding 3 shops in Washington D.C. and one in Reston, Virginia. They sell organic authentic Italian style gelato and sorbet. They have truly spoiled me for all other gelato. Whenever I wind up eating gelato from somewhere I else I inevitably wind up thinking nope not as good as Pitango.
Whenever I am down in Fells Point I have to stop in for some gelato. Yesterday was a cool, rainy summer day in Baltimore. As all the plans I envisioned for my weekend involved being outdoors we wound up meeting up with some friends at Max’s Taphouse for the afternoon. Since Max’s is across the square from Pitango, I also knew this meant there was some gelato in my future. My husband will often use Pitango as an incentive to lure me down to Fell’s Point if there’s some reason he wants to go down there.
Their pistachio flavor is my favorite, so I always get that. What I pair with it varies. One of my favorite combinations is pistachio and cardamom. They haven’t had any cardamom the past several times I’ve been though. Instead I’ve recently been getting half pistachio half black tea, which is also an excellent combination.
I’ve never tried any of their sorbets because I’m much more partial to gelato than sorbet, but I hear it is excellent as well. If you’re ever near one of their locations I highly suggest that you stop in and treat yourself to an excellent frozen dessert.
