The dessert is typically flavored with cocoa or nut and fruit purees.

Other ingredients, including chocolate flakes, roasted nuts, small confections, wafers, cookies or biscuits may be added, but only after the gelato is frozen.

One of the deserts that top the list of favorites at Il Gelato d' Oro is the Greek yogurt with honey and almond ice cream.
