74. Pistachio Gelato from Pan'e Dolci

Though Pan'e Dolci specializes in cookies, tarts, cannolis, and Italian bread, when the weather is hot, it's a destination for gelato that's made in-house. Pastry chef Roberto Pacella helms the kitchen, earning cred as a baker at Gran Forno, at Settebello, and aboard Princess Cruise Lines.

When it comes to flavors, stracciatella, strawberry, and hazelnut are most tempting. Traditionalists go for pistachio. Just sweet enough, this creamy treat is laden with whole nuts to boot. With more yolks, more milk, and less cream than ice cream, gelato is dense, rich, and highly addictive. Don't let the numbers fool you. Just because it's 5 to 10 percent less fat than ice cream does not make it any less decadent.
