We went there to celebrate with family. Their staffs were rude, literally had no manners in serving their customers and one of them literally cursed us saying " shut up you stupid b%*$@h". I was set aback and everyone of us were flabbergasted. We know it was closing time but that doesn't give them the right to insult their customer.

Fun place to stop after the beach, after dinner, or just traveling about. Always busy and great ice cream.

A huge selection of tasty gelato, great carousel gifts, and a bright cheerful staff...we would have visited far more often had we found this place a little earlier in our vacation. Highly recommended for gelato junkies!

The gelato is very good, but I loved the atmosphere. Very clean and bright, interesting mosaics on the walls, and a lovely carousel out back. Also has parking out front, which is not always the case. Worth a stop just to see the place

Well, this was the best ice cream I've had in ages. The butter fat content is high and really creamy. You get a small taste of any of the flavors. My friends wanted to go every night. Don't miss trying it at least once. A little pricey but your on vacation do why not.

We ended up going here several times. They opened this beautiful carousel just for us to take rides & pics. The desserts are dreamy, creamy and the service is amazing. We even met the italian owner! What a treat to find this place!

Ditto to all of the other great reviews. Flavors are insane, quality is top notch. Great spot for a quick, cold treat on a hot day!

Made fresh daily this is a great place for desert. Enjoy the building it is a wonder unto its self. The only draw back is when there are many kids inside it can be a bit noisy.

This is a cute little place to satisfy your ice cream cravings. They have many flavors of gelato to chose from. I had the coconut in a waffle cone. My boyfriend had the dark chocolate and coconut in a waffle cone. Both were very yummy. The only downside is the prices.
