Lots of gelat choices, real fresh product, just don't get it to go-it melts too fast. Get a larger bucket tho and that may work. Samples are encouraged. Grab some of the pastries to go or munch one with the gelat. Very fresh. You can...More

We saw the Gelato sign and needed the refreshment. Inside we found a wonderful Italian bakery with sample sizes of about 20+ different pastries. We purchased many varieties, some gelato, croisants and brioche. We sat outside and melted with the flavor all the great treats....More

Can't believe I found such authentic gelato - lived in Italy for over 2 years and this is the real deal! They have combined Hawaiian flavors too - Kona coffee and macadamia nut ice cream - yum!

The food is amazing. Milkshake was best ever. I would also recommend the savoury crepes. Staff was super friendly.

The selection can’t match what you get in a big city, but the gelato quality is about as good; also they're friendly and efficient. The vanilla (“made with vanilla beans” they say) was really very good.

This place never disappoints. The gelato flavors are fresh and flavored with local fruit. The Italian pastries are excellent as are their croissants. Love this place.

The gelato was very refreshing and flavorful. The owner was on site and takes a lot of pride in the fresh pastries and gelato. Flavors for kids and adults. The small is large enough for two! Right next to Annie's burgers.

So Good! All the flavores we tasted were creamy and delicious but our favorites were Orange Chocolate, Tiramisu, Coffee, and the "S" gelato which I can't spell. We didn't try the pastries but they all looked rich. If you have a sweet tooth don't miss...More
