City Guide: Paris
The artisanal Italian gelato and sorbets served here are second to none.
When one thinks of ice cream in Paris most think of the classic haunt Berthillon on Île Saint-Louis. Others might come across the Italian-style Amorino, which serves up pretty, rose-shaped cones, and Häagen-Dazs and Ben & Jerry’s still draw a crowd (if you can believe it). Since you are in Paris to eat the best, the gelati and sorbets served at Pozzetto are second to none. They prepare a dozen flavors from scratch each and every day using all-natural ingredients like a not-to-be-missed chocolate hazelnut (noccio) and dreamy fig. Actually, you just can’t go wrong. As in Italy, cups or cones are filled to size, but you can pick whatever flavor combinations you desire.
