Pittsburgh icecream spots?

I'm looking for a few good Pittsburgh ice cream recommendations.

I was a regular at Dave & Andy's back in September, but I can't say it blew my socks off. Does it ruffle your feathers a bit to read that? I mean, they definitely get points for originality of flavors. But the execution left something to be desired.

Take their birthday cake, for example. I adore mushed up cake and ice cream. Their version even had cake sprinkles added in! But a spoon full left my mouth aching, from sharp ice crystals and too hard to munch sprinkles. And the cake tasted a bit like crumbly pumice stone - as though it hadn't been properly incorporated with the ice cream mix before freezing.

So surely the Burgh has better spots to offer. Know of them? Please share!
