With summer's impending three-digit temps comes relief in the form of frozen treats, and Heights residents won't have to drive far to find them. While upcoming gelato spot Gelazzi isn't expected to open until May, it's already luring area residents in with a colorful mural painted on the side of its building. Owners Louie Comella and Leigh Rubino and operating partner Wayne Arnaiz are excited to bring their brand of freshly-made gelato to the neighborhood. Arnaiz tells Eater that the frozen cream will all be "made on the premises" and they they will also be offering "Italian ice, flatbreads, salads, [panini] and a full bar." The cafe will also cater to the area's residents, with a family-friendly atmosphere and games. Arnaiz says they will have "a bocce ball court in the back, along with tables and a bike rack."
While the bright, colorful space already hosted some guests with a free gelato promotion during a recent Sunday Streets HTX (where a long line waited patiently), it is expected to officially open to the public in the early part of May.
