Had peanut butter cup and chocolate covered strawberries ice cream. They have over 30 flavors and voted the best ice cream, when in Castro street should not miss it.

I always try to seek out a gelato place when I travel and this is definitely in my top three. I drove up from San Jose in order to try it. They have many accolades from the community.

I like the variety of gelato offered. However, some of it seems to have been there for a while as there's ice flakes on top. Either it's been there a while or the freezer isn't working well? However, my biggest issue is the insanely SLOW...More
