Felipo (from Italy) owns this place and is making it a great stop. The menu is fairly limited beyond the Gelato which is to die for. What they lack in menu they more than make up for in warmth, style and friendliness. Felipo and his...More

Just the best ice cream we tried in our trip. And the cappuccino was perfect as well. The service is good, the place really beautful and they have seats outside but it is fresh. I strongly recommend this place. Flavours to try: snickers and cinnamon.

Gelato is good, they have around a dozen of flavours to choose from. Also, chairs and tables outside to hang out while you eat. The only improvement I'd add is some places inside for when the heat is too much.

Very nice ice cream! You can try the flavours and the portions are very big. They didn't write the names of the flavours in English though.

We tried the peanut-chocolate flavor, the peanut flavor, and the cinnamon flavor. Enjoyed all three. We arrived craving coffee-flavored gelato, but they did not carry that flavor. We could have had a cup of coffee with ice cream in it, though. We'll come back!

We are the first Italian Gelato Shop in The Caribbean of Costa Rica for five years running. We have brought our traditional gelato recipes direct from Italy. We offer a large selection of delicious flavors( up to 20) made in house daily. In addition to the tropical and traditional flavors we also have non-dairy and vegan options. If you dont feel like a cold treat, try an espresso or cappuccino. We have created a chilled out Caribbean vibe! You will feel cool and relaxed listening to our selection of reggae music while sitting outside under a thatched roof with ocean view! We are located in the town center just across the bus stop. We look forward to seeing you here! PURA VIDA!
