What goes well with Aunt MabelÂs pumpkin pie or GrandmaÂs fruitcake? Mio GelatoÂs handmade artisan gelato in more than 70 rotating flavors, including winter favorites: cinnamon, hazelnut, rum raisin, and pumpkin. Mio Gelato will hand pack any combination of flavors in a pint ($6.95), quart ($13.90) or gallon ($50). The gallon will easily feed 25 people with 2 scoops each. A perfect topping for holiday pies or simply served alone, Mio GelatoÂs Italian gelato is to be savored and shared.
ÂWe handcraft every flavor right in the storeÂ says Bob Lightman, Mio GelatoÂs owner and chief gelato maker. ÂOur texture is the real thingÂ soft, light and creamy and, of course, truly Italian.Â
Italian Chocolato Caldo
A special blend of hot chocolate imported from Italy is now available at Mio Gelato. ÂWe have an authentic Italian machine that slow cooks the chocolate so the creamy, rich texture develops,Â says Lightman. ÂIt is like drinking warm chocolate pudding.Â

Â Genoa Salami with basil and fontina cheese
Â Prosciutto with arugula and parmesan
Â Capicollo, a spicy ham with tomatoes, arugula, and fontina
