Un Altra Volta
Evoking the laboratory-style new wave Italian gelateria, this high-design mini-chain keeps it cool with 65 intensely flavored creations under gleaming stainless-steel lids. Try several scoops: aromatic maracuyá (passion fruit), studded with crunchy seeds, and rich, silky cremas in flavors like nougat or marrón glacé. The snazziest branch is on Avenida Santa Fé, in Recoleta, replete with loungy armchairs and a pretty garden where couples nuzzle, girlfriends gossip, and perfectly coiffed ladies decorously attack orange cream truffles and lemon meringues. Don’t Miss Dulce de leche gelato, wickedly caramely with candied almonds and hazelnuts.
