Description: We are the first Italian Gelato Shop in The Caribbean of Costa Rica for five years running. We have brought our traditional gelato recipes direct from Italy. We offer a large selection of delicious flavors( up to 20) made in house daily. In addition to the tropical and traditional flavors we also have non-dairy and vegan options. If you dont feel like a cold treat, try an espresso or cappuccino. We have created a chilled out Caribbean vibe! You will feel cool and relaxed listening to our selection of reggae music while sitting outside under a thatched roof with ocean view! We are located in the town center just across the bus stop. We look forward to seeing you here! PURA VIDA!

We stopped in one late afternoon. The line was long - with good reason. Lots of options and the ice cream was very good. Not cheap but worth it. Definitely a hit!

Saw several ice cream options in town but we chose this one for dessert. Lots of fruit flavors with a few other options as well which made for yummy soft gelato right close to the beach.

Set on a corner, the terrace is great to check out the people and the beach. Bus stop is right there! Some chairs might need to be adjusted, but nice place to "surf" and enjoy your food! Talking of, great coffee and various types of sorbet, the maracuyà and pipa as well as the mango are delicious - you can truly taste the fruit unlike others that are too watery and sugary! Had a sandwich there also, it was good!
Service is great also.
On another note, Costa Rica is way too expensive (so not just this place), you pay the same price if not more than you would in big cities!

Felipo (from Italy) owns this place and is making it a great stop. The menu is fairly limited beyond the Gelato which is to die for. What they lack in menu they more than make up for in warmth, style and friendliness. Felipo and his staff are lovely.

Generally it was my stop for coffee in the late afternoon and to use the free Wi-Fi. I tried the gelato ... and BE SURE YOU TRY THE GELATO ... because it is the best I have had outside of Italy. From their verandah you can sit and watch the world go by ... people coming and going by bus and the bus load ... cyclists, pedestrians and skateboarders. The location results in beautiful sea breezes so it is very comfortable.

Try it out ... at least once. I am certainly you will love it.

Ice cream is delicious- cost about $4US for a medium which was plenty after a full meal- staff member was so nice and offered suggestions- perfect way to end the night!
