Best in town. Amazing flavors. Always a treat. They have delicious hot chocolate and coffee drinks as well.

Hard to imagine that it was as good as the tons of gelato we had in Italy. The flavors are unusual and all the samples we had were excellent. Be adventurous (try a sample first). TIP: go on the off-hours or wait forever on line.

Long line up but the gelato is delicious. Chocolate flavour close to some of the best gelato in Italy. Will definitely be back.

Love this place, keep going back. The range of choices is incredible. Some really creative ones. Love the salted chocolate. Pricy but worth it.

We had lunch at their new restaurant on the waterfront. The pizzas and panini were wonderful - just like in Italy. The gelato is some of the best I have ever had anywhere - no wonder it wins awards! I had the salted pecan, which had ground nuts as well as larger nut pieces in it. Wonderful taste and texture.... More

The line at Bella Gelataria can be ridiculously long, sometimes stretching around the corner. On a busy day, it can easily run 45 minutes. Wait or not, it would've been worth it. With exotic flavors such as Akbar Mashti, Buka Pandan, and Thai Organic coconut milk, how can you not try it out? I ordered their Banana Bread and Chocolate... More

Prepare to wait in line but so good. The owner has been awarded the best Gelato in Italy and eating it proves it. I had Amarena cherry and my friend salted Maldon chocolate. Very unusual flavors ( green tea, banana bread) So rich and creamy - cones with one flavor was $6.75 - well worth it. Made in small batches... More

I'll start with the basics: The gelato is good but not great, and it's on the pricey side for what you get. They have a small variety of flavors that go beyond the usuals. We chose chocolate and strawberry but might have better enjoyed one of the unusual flavors. A small cup (1 flavor) is about $5.50, and a large... More

We walked by this place one day. The line-up was very long, all the way outside the store. So we went back the next day, the line-up was shorter. There are so many awards posted all over the store. I tried the Black Sesame (it was recommended by the lady in front of us). Excellent...great choice.

This was easily the best gelato I have ever had. Sometimes, the queue is quite long and snakes around the block, but it is well-worth the wait. I tried the Salty Caramel and they are eager to let you taste other flavors before making a choice. They have many unusual flavors to choose from as well as all the traditional... More
