Gelato Bar

4342 1/2 Tujunga Ave.
Studio City, CA 91604
It's both cruel and practical that Gelato Bar limits customers to three samples. Otherwise, we'd probably be lolling at the counter and annoying the clerks as we taste our way through the shop's repertoire of dense, Italian-themed gelato flavors. Owned by Gail Silverton (sister of Mozza's pizza queen Nancy), Gelato Bar has two locations, Los Feliz and Studio City.
