Great Gelato! Lots of amazing flavours, from some of the more plain to quite decadent. Dairy free options as well. Highly recommend.

We stopped for a cool break near our hotel in Poipu. The gelato selection was good and the gelato flavors we picked were tasty. Not world class but this isn't Italy. .

Great gelato (just wish it wasn't so expensive--or that the scoops were bigger). I haven't tried anything that I didn't love.
