Al Gelato - Mmmmm.... Meatball ....
Al Gelato - A view of the counter (the cake side) - enormous cakes, huh?  the gelato is on the other side.
Al Gelato - The complimentary bread - warm and fluffy.
Al Gelato - Rigatoni with tomato sauce.  This is the 'light' on the sauce, so you can imagine what normal is like.

Meatball! Meatball! Meatball! This is why I come to Al Gelato. The gelato and the myriad of desserts are fine, but it is the ginormous meatball drenched in homemade tomato sauce that beckons me back again and again. To be honest, I rarely if ever have the gelato here …

Al Gelato is a family run place – very casual and a little worn. When you enter you are faced with a large case of gelati, yet I always walk on by to be seated for a meal. Service varies depending on the server from super friendly to barely utilitarian – but I ignore all that because I know I will soon be with my meatball…. Mmmm…. Anyways, the menu is simple consisting of pizzas and a few pastas, salads and sandwiches. This time my friend and I ordered a large bowl of rigatoni to share (actually it’s their half-order which is quite big; I can’t imagine what the full order looks like) (tip – I usually ask them to be light on the tomato sauce, otherwise you get pasta in a bowl of “soup”) and a meatball for each of us. Before your meal comes, the server brings you a chunk of warm, yummy bread with a choice of condiments – olives, jalapenos, etc. I’ve seen people fight over this bread – so dig in! The food comes pretty quickly and soon we are happily filling our tummies. The meatball, as always, is delectable. The tomato sauce, sweet and fresh. When we were done, I managed to roll myself home. Yum.
