School has started and summer’s just ending, but that doesn’t take away the choice to enjoy some delicious ice cream while the opportunity is still available. Miabella Gelato has found its way to success with an approved rating and built its home in the busy Fountains at Roseville. 

While first arriving at the store, there were two black table sets on the outside and around four on the inside. The interior design was modern and simple, contrasting strategically with the flash of color and creativity the menu board had to show above the counter. 

The only complaint I had about my first impression of the store was the long wait. I had a couple of people ahead of me but due to only one staff member managing the whole line, it became really boring, really fast. Due to the variety of flavors available, both kids and adults wanted to sample it all, which made the additional wait extraneous. 

Once I finally arrived at the counter, I got the option to choose a small, medium, large or a waffle cone. Knowing me being obsessed with the childhood-like feel with waffle cones, I chose that option and with 2 gelato flavors: Mango and Pistachio.

It was a little bit on the pricey side as the size differences between the cups didn’t vary much. The grande size was six dollars and twenty five cents for a seemingly small cup. But, gelato is 60% to 70% less fat than ice cream and that’s what makes up for the expense— at least that’s what they say. 

The mango had a tartness that matched well with the nutty pistachio and the waffle cone. They neutralized each other and I enjoyed eating them together rather than individually. The pistachio flavor had nuts in it as well that gave the gelato texture.

Overall, the experience at Miabella Gelato was decent. Nothing stood out too much. The gelato was a bit overpriced but the location and the homey feel of the fountains made the shop a nice place to stop by for a deserved treat.
