Lots of fancy ice creams, gelatos, and ices in town, but none can quite match the perversely named Il Laboratorio del Gelato, where the technicians and counter force wear white lab coats (cool gimmick) and bustle around like scientists. Only a handful of flavors are available every day. On a recent visit, the tastiest gelato was a puce-colored pistachio of surpassing subtlety, while a fruit-rife strawberry ice cannily avoided the usual mistake: too sweet.
