only ate the gelato but want to come back to try other menu items. not the best seating but that is fine when the gelato is so very yummy! The cinnamon toast crunch was the absolute best of the three others ordered.

I truly loved this place. It's a small but very well decorated place. The staff here was very friend. The menu was great and the food was awesome. If you like gelato then yes my friends this is the place to go for it. I definitely recommend this place to anyone.

A cute little place with a large chalk board on the wall of all they offer. they offer about 8-10 different kinds of gelato. There are some unusual flavors like chai latte and the standards like chocolate & vanilla

A stroll downtown almost always has to include a stop at the Gelato Company. The staff is very kind and more than happy to let you try as many flavors as you would like. They also have a great fundraiser program for local groups.

Portions are generous and prices are very reasonable. Sandwich was a little dry--I had the turkey and apple with honey cream cheese. It was tasty but the bread was quite "chewy" as if it had been microwaved.

The sandwiches here are excellent- especially the vegetariano. And you get a good deal because it comes with two sides and if you buy a drink you get a free gelato! Gelato is pretty yummy as well.

I'm still dreaming about the Samoa gelato days later! Great atmosphere and service! Location is near the university and in a great spot! A must try if you're in the area!

This is a great place for some cheap desert whenever your downtown. The gelato is just as good as what I've had in Italy. I need to take my husband here so we can relish in the memories of our journey ;)

Sandwiched in between long-time downtown favorite Emiliano's and the new OAK trendy bar, Gelato is easy to miss. While the decor is minimalist, the food is big on flavor. I enjoyed a Chicken Hawaiian wrap with pineapples, red peppers and honey mustard dressing. Would order again. My wife had Chicken Salad on Greens, a full meal but she was not... More
