Your Tucson Gelato Guide


With 70% less fat than dairy ice cream and a decadent, rich flavor, gelato has earned its spot as a drool-worthy dessert. Tucson is loaded with gelato joints you need to try, like Pistacchio Gelato Naturale Italiano at 446 N Campbell Ave. It’s tucked close to the UA campus and has over two dozen flavors, from their pineapple and basil to the creamy chocolate. You can also get a frappe or coffee for a little caffeine boost with your dessert.

Tazzina di Gelato, located at 5420 E Broadway Blvd., offers a variety of gelato sizes, Italian sodas, shakes, and floats to satisfy any sweet tooth. Flavors can change weekly, and you’re in for a treat whether you go with the Mexican coffee flavor, peanut butter and caramel, pistachio or prickly pear.

How Many Scoops?

You’ll find Frost Gelato at 7301 E Tanque Verde Rd #191 where you can get gelato, sorbet, cakes and a variety of coffee drinks. Check out their many flavors, including Lotus cookie, cardamom, caramel macchiato, root beer, and rum raisin. Specialty flavors change each month.

Tucson is also home to a variety of frozen yogurt shops, traditional ice cream shops like the famed Screamery, and even an all-cashew based dessert hot spot called Cashew Cow. No matter what you’re craving, Tucson has a cool way to tantalize your taste buds. Where will your first stop be?
