If you haven’t tried gelato yet, think Italian ice cream but creamier and more intensely flavored. Typically you get a smaller cup and maybe a mini-spoon to savor each taste. Geluna churns out a very traditional gelato, owners Diana and Warwick trained over in Italy to make an authentic and creamy gelato that will save you a trip to Europe. Inside Geluna Gelato, it’s light, bright, and white decked out in whites and sea green colors along with mod globe lighting overhead and a polished concrete floor underneath. The menu is pretty simple, ten or so gelatos and sorbets being rotated on a regular basis. Gelato is served up as Baby, Small or Classic sizes in cone or cup form from $3 to $7.50
I recommend starting with the basics like stracciatella (milk with chocolate chip) or sea salt caramel. Geluna seems to be exploring a bit with their flavors and is churning out more adventurous options like banana chocolate chip, pecorino with pear jam but I think it’s always good to start with the basics to see how good a place is. Given the time it takes to produce gelato, they may be out of flavors from time to time. In addition to gelato in cup or cone form, Geluna Gelato offers up milkshakes, affogato (gelato with espresso pour on top), gelato ice cream sandwiches along with gelato by the pint to take home.
All I can say is that it’s now a bit of tradition for me to grab dinner in downtown Cary and then finish the evening off with a frozen treat from Geluna Gelato! There’s nothing better than dipping your tiny little gelato spoon into a creamy cup of gelato to finish off the evening on a warm summer’s night, bon appetit!
