Time Out says

The Lakeview location of the Texas-based franchise is basically Baskin-Robbins: Italian Edition, but aside from the color palette—faded pastels and the incumbent sterility—that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Yes, the gelato lacks the thick consistency of the authentic stuff, but it’s creamy, melty and comes in some 300 flavors (pistachio and sea-salt caramel are both worth trying). The frequently rotating selection of 32 at a time means more adventurous flavors like black-pepper olive oil keep regulars on their toes.
