Delicious homemade gelato! A lot of cone options and dairy-free flavor options too! I had the toffee flavor and it was amazing! So much softer, richer and creamier than ice cream! A must every time we're in Seaside!

I had the pistachio gelato and it was pretty good. Reminded me a lot of the taste and texture of peanut butter.

Stumbled onto this while taking an after dinner stroll. My travel partner was all "Whoa" with the options and the fact IT WAS GELATO!!!! not soft serve, not baskin robbins not "basic" I liked the non dairy options... He liked the death by choclate!!! some...of the options were not basic at all!!!!!!! but they had some of the simpler ones for the uber pickyMore

This gelato shop is well worth your visit. They have at least 30 different flavors, and although it may not be as good as the gelato in Italy, it's a close 2nd. We go there every time we're in Seaside.

If you are going to Seaside you have to stop here. Absolutely amazing gelato. We stopped by on Halloween and got some spooky scoops of ice cream. Everyone was very nice and helpful. 10/10

Once we took our four small grandchildren here, they literally asked for this gelato every day! Blue Moon, Bubblegum, Elk Tracs and the Coconut Lime were family favorites of ours. We enjoyed eating the ice cream inside. Ambiance is beachy and colorful which appeals to...small children. :)More

We wanted to try the gelato. It was a nice treat, not very many flavors to choose from. But maybe this is normal with gelato. The girl behind the counter near the entrance making waffle cones did not have her hair covered adequately. Kind of...surprising to me. Service was fairly quick. Nice stop for a treat.More

My husband and I have enjoyed gelato in many European countries and this is the best gelato I’ve had in the United States. As other reviewers mentioned, it’s more like ice cream and less icy than typical American gelato. There were 4 of us and...3 had one scoop and one had 2 scoops. The bill was $14 which I think is reasonable given the quality and the beach location.More

The only reason I gave it a 4 star is because they were out of two things we really wanted. We wanted 2 ice cream panini's and some shark bites. They only had one panini left and no shark bites. The ice cream panini was...delicious! We will be back again.More
