One Austin export we can definitely get behind in Houston is Dolce Neve, makers of fine gelato. Sure, it's a little different from ice cream in that it's decidedly Italian, and this Heights shop serves up a killer stracciatella (chocolate chip), hazelnut and lemon custard. But a selection of creative seasonal flavors such as the ultra-luxurious goat cheese and pecan, with chevre sourced from Pure Luck Dairy and pecans from San Saba, is the real reason you should become a regular. That, and the fact that you're just as likely to find proprietor and Italian transplant Marco Silvestrini offering samples, making the shop's signature waffle cones, or talking about the art of gelato. Not to be overlooked are the salted caramel gelato pops, gelato sandwiches and the affogato — espresso poured over the gelato of your choosing. Here, that caffeine fix comes courtesy of Dolce Neve neighbor Morningstar. Already a beloved fixture in the neighborhood, Dolce Neve has also teamed up with Agricole Hospitality chef Ryan Pera to offer new seasonal flavors plucked right from Coltivare's garden and beyond.
