Tucked away in an U-shaped retail center, Bulgarini Gelato is one of Altadena's finest. Locals know it, and seekers of fine eats will concur. The owner takes pride, and will tell you, about the elaborate process for making his fine gelato. Sure, there're other creameries you can go to (less pricey too) but you can't compare! Your definition of gelato will change for the better after you taste Bulgarini's. This place is for those who seek to treat their palette or to impress a date. Also, don't judge the portion by the size of the scoop nor the price, but rather for the potent flavors that will unravel onto your taste buds with each lick. Fantástico!

Located in the back corner of the Rite-aid shopping area, parking is easy. A very small shop half gelateria, half Italian restaurant. Two display cases one for food, one for gelato. Many different flavors are available, some are even labeled. Don't ask what one of the unlabeled ones are, you'll get a grumpy reply inferring you are stupid to ask. There is one small table inside and several outside. The products are good and many people love this place. However, with the attitude we got, we won't be returning.

We saw this spot on Food Network channel and was amazed that we knew nothing about it. Took my kids and was IN LOVE with the flavors.

You can't go wrong with any of the flavors here. They make gelato and granitas, which are icier and usually made with lots of fresh fruit. They spare no expense to get quality ingredients and it shows. Worth the splurge. If you want cheap stuff, Rite Aid is next door ;)
