Lots of flavours of gelato and they have lactose free gelato also. Hooray !!! We don't see that much in Australia. Not the cheapest prices but very tasty and worth it. Shop is located in the Poipu Shopping Village.

My first taste of gelato was here. I loved the mint. This is right next to Puka dog. Perfect light treat after a Puka dog.
