From the pistachio (best in the city!) to the rice gelato studded with bits of rice, it's apparent that L'Arte del Gelato can do no wrong. And there's a relatively recent addition to the family: Olive Oil Gelato. For those familiar with Otto's olive oil gelato, this version is more dense and full-bodied, a touch less salty than Otto's. The olive oil flavor at L'Arte is gentle and light, whereas Otto is bold, sophisticated. Which to love more? You don't have to choose! Both versions are equally wonderful in their own ways.
