“Morano just might make the best gelato outside of Italy. The story is that the young owner, who is from Hanover, studied gelato craft in Florence, Italy, thus bringing her creations back into the open arms of her fellow citizens. Flavors and fresh ingredients change from day to day. It's always delicious and interesting, and Morano gives free tastes. Check their hours. Conveniently located near the Nugget movie theater!”
