Anyone who knows me knows that gelato is my favorite food or meal of the day. I always look forward to eating gelato. The last time I was in Italy, I ate 20 different flavors in a matter of 3 days. Yes, in 3 days!!! This time, I knew I had to pace myself and didn't want gelato to be my only meal for each day since I was no longer a poor grad student traveling through Europe.
Once I landed in Milan, I knew I wanted gelato that day. I searched and searched and found Cioccolati Italiani via Yelp. It had amazing reviews and it was just around the corner from my hotel near the Duomo.
I entered the gelato spot with no line. Apparently, just an hour before, the line went around the corner but since I went at dinner hour, the line was non-existent. There was a chocolate fountain for a window display. Their main ingredient is chocolate. The unique part about this shop is if you desire, they top off the gelato with Nutella. Even watching them scoop the gelato is an artform. They also serve a customer every 60 seconds. You'll see...

Overall, Cioccolati Italiani is an awesome place to get gelato if you're in the area near the Duomo. The wait can be long, but it goes by pretty quickly. I love all the different options they have here, including crepes and various cones. The fact that they put Nutella on top of the gelato is a plus. It's authentic, creamy and delicious. And if you come during an odd time, you may just be lucky enough to avoid the queue.
