Best gelato around town! Flavors constantly changing for a great variety. My son compares all others to Black Dog and nobody can beat it.

I love this place and love that every time I go there are different flavors of gelato! One of my favorite go-to spots in the summer!

Black Dog Gelato is my ultimate favorite in artisinal Chicago staples. I love their ever-changing menu of unique flavors.

We had Black Dog served at our wedding and got endless compliments from our g...uests about what a great treat it was after dinner.

My husband and I also took a gelato-making class with Jessie (the owner) and agreed it was our favorite Valentine's Day together.

All together, amazing service and a superlative product. So glad to have this in our city.

One of my favorite ice cream places in Chicago. Tried the Greek yogurt and it was out of this world. The Chocolate Sorbet is my absolute favorite though!

EVERY flavor is incredible. They can take ingredients like rosemary, sesame oil and balsamic vinegar and come up with a gelato that you never thought could taste that good. Who would have thought usin...g sesame oil in a desert could taste so good! See More

If I could give this 10 stars I would, Black Dog Gelato is fucking AMAZING. It's not traditional, and it doesn't try to be. It tries to be creative, unexpected, and delicious- and has delivered all th...ree of those qualities every single time I've gone there. See More

Black Dog Gelato is chockfull of amazing and creative flavors on constant rotation. So good and I can't resist it even though I'm lactose-intolerant. We all have to make sacrifices sometimes, right?
