Easy stop for an ice cream while on the Riverwalk. We went for the gelato. It was very good and get to sit at a small table at the edge of the Riverwalk and watch the world go by.

Just happened to be walking by and noted all the people getting served. Had to try it and am glad I did. Some of the best tasting and creamiest ice cream I’ve had.

We were overheating and ice cream was needed. The line was long but moved quickly. The flavor of the ice cream was not the best but on a hot day, it was cold and that is what mattered.

When we vacation, we are ALWAYS looking for the best ice cream! It is part of our diet, it seems! :) Unfortunately, most of the places on the Riverwalk were chains...and we like the "mom and pop" ice cream shops the most. We came upon...More

We stopped in here for dessert during our trip. Fresh, handmade ice creams & sorbets are the perfect refreshing treat. Friendly staff made great recommendations and offered samples as well. There are several options for ice cream on the River Walk but only Justin’s tastes...More
