The line can be long at Amore Gelato, which opened on the 16th Street Mall in summer 2010. But for those who prefer Italian-style gelato and sorbet to ice cream, its more calorie-rich American counterpart, the wait is well worth it. Styled as a modern European sweet shop, Amore Gelato draws tourists walking off big mall meals, movie-goers and those with a taste for unusual flavors: Honey sunflower and mojito are among the sweet offerings in rotation. Locally owned, Amore Gelato proudly buys all of its dairy from local farmers, though some of the ingredients come from Italy. Frozen yogurt, gelato shakes and sorbet smoothies are special draws at this cute creamery.
