Authentic Italian treats for your sweet tooth!


If you hear the term “gelato,” you may just think it’s Italian ice cream and leave it at that. The fact is, though, that gelato starts with a milk base (as opposed to a cream base for most ice creams), and is mixed and frozen more slowly, which results in a creamier, more dense, and lower-fat treat. You’ll find traditional Italian gelato, as well as fat-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free sorbetto, at Congelato! in Helotes. Their sweet menu rotates regularly among the 50 flavors they offer, so there’s always something new to try! Congelato! is open Wednesday to Friday 3 to 8 PM, Saturday 1 to 8 PM, and Sunday 1 to 5 PM.
