Montecito: Here's The Scoop

If you want to taste the very best gelato and sorbetto in the whole wide world, come here.

I'm going to try to describe how good the homemade gelatos and sorbets are here. Think all fresh and seasonal ingredients. Think CREAMY sorbetto, with no dairy. Think that you died and woke up in ice cream paradise. Hands down, this is the best sorbetto I have EVER tasted. Flavors like green apple, tangerine, and lavender lemon were like heaven on earth to taste (and the unlimited spoon tastings kept generously coming!) but the flavor that sold me and won my heart and soul forever was the just-freshly made creamy strawberry sorbetto with chocolate stracciatella. I will yearn for this forever.

My husband said his caramel cream gelato was better than any gelato he's ever had on either side of the Atlantic. If this shop existed anywhere within a 100 mile radius of where I lived, I would have a serious addiction problem. I met and talked with one of the owners, and her enthusiasm about their business and making ice creams was genuine. Suffice to say that if you are ever in or anywhere near Montecito, shame on you if you miss out the The Scoop. You only live once- don't miss it under any circumstances.
