South Boston News
Lucy Ann Victoria Montes-Bradley stands in front of her parents’ gelato freezer at Caffe Peroni. She is all too happy to taste them all.
Just in time for summer, Caffe Peroni in Downtown South Boston is making, on-site, its own gelato. Gelato is sometimes known as Italian ice, but there’s nothing icy about these creamy, luscious concoctions except the temperature.
