Three weeks ago a new gelato and crêpe place opened in Mt. Lookout Square called Buona Terra. My family and I checked it out last Friday after having dinner at Zip’s.
The inside is beautifully renovated and modern. The menu is written in chalk on the wall, which I’m assuming was painted with chalkboard paint. They have a handful of crêpe options split between sweet and savory. We didn’t try the crepes on this visit, but will be back soon to do so.
They have a massive gelato case that wouldn’t even fit through their front door. Fortunately they were able to get it inside while doing renovations to the outside walls. It contains two dozen varieties of gelato and sorbet. The friendly employees are more than happy to let you sample as many as you’d like.
Our son easily settled with the cookies and cream gelato, while I chose the blackberry sorbet ($3.50 each for small cups). They try to use as many local ingredients as possible. For example, the blackberry came from locally sourced berries from Sunrise Farms located in Dalton, Ohio.
Both flavors were delicious. The cookies and cream was very creamy and had a great chocolate balance to it. As much as I liked it, the blackberry was even better. I would highly recommend it. We will be back again soon and will definitely be trying the crepes as well.
