We were immediately sidetracked by the gelato case at the front door.

We almost turned around and hit back in the car. It looked like chaos. It was a Sunday afternoon after all. We took a deep breath and then we took a number. Before we could get that tantalizing gelato I was instructed we had to finish our cheese shopping. Soon I was choosing fresh cheese and smoked cheese and bufala sausages. I think I got one of everything. Finally we moved to the gelato case and were served enormous scoops of what might be the best gelato I have ever had.

The Rivabianca gelato is obviously made from fresh buffalo milk. The texture was creamier than regular gelato with rich, clean flavors. We tried ricotta e pere, chocolate, pistachio with just barely a crunch of pistachio dust.

This was one delicious detour.
