a dozen variety of locally-made ice cream, the flavors, especially pistaccio were great, not too sweet and that's teh way I like ice creams...

Great little gelato place up a little laneway next to Watermarc. There is always a queue however it moves pretty fast and the wait is worth it - the choice of flavours are mouth-watering! Wonderful on a warm day!

Had a really yummy mint chocolate chip gelato - hubby had the pistacio. To die for! We'll be back again!

We have spent a week in Newport Beach each of the past three summers and hit Gelato Paradiso at least twice per trip. There will most certainly be a line, but don't worry, it moves fast and it's worth the wait!

I got the peanut butter/choc and chocolate chip and they put it in a to-go cup and I ate it on my way home from the beach. It was $9 and I would go there again.

Just the smell alone wafting from this amazing hole in the wall is enough to make your mouth water....simply too inviting to walk past without trying an exotic or plain flavor. Not to be missed on a hot summer day... it's not a secret that...More

I can’t believe there was no line when I stopped here after lunch. Usually there are quite a few people waiting. There were a lot of flavors to choose from. The service was quick and the gelato was very good.

Our artisanal gelato is hand-made in small batches every morning, right in the shop. Each flavor is rendered using old world recipes and traditions that have been passed down and improved upon through generations of master artisans. When we say “artisanal,” what we’re really trying to convey is hundreds of years of gelato history, knowledge, and expertise behind each bite.
