This is my favorite place to eat in Foley, and given the usual packed lunch crowd, a favorite of many other people. It has excellent sandwiches and salads you can select from the old-style glass deli case, desserts to die for, and of course, gelato. It's casual, nothing fancy. We usually have lunch, although they have dinner specials, wine, beer,... More

I love the taste of the food here and the size of the portions for the cost,but honestly, I get diarrhea every time I eat here. Don't know why.

We visited Gelato Joes for dinner on a Friday night and were very impressed with the food! Everything from the salad, garlic toast and our meals which were Stuffed Shells and Chicken Alfredo were fresh and delicious. Servings were large portions too. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating as well! We will be going back often. Make sure you... More

We hadn't visited this one in a while, but we are never disappointed. I had the best bloody mary, sweet and hot, very good. I also ordered the Meatball sandwich with cheese and red sauce, I thought I died and went to heaven. My husband ordered the Philly cheesesteak sandwich, I snuck a bite, mmm, I could of eaten that...

A friend told me about this little Italian restaurant in Foley so I had to find it. All the years of going to Gulf Shores I never knew about Gelato Joes but so glad I do now. I had a panni sandwich (Chicken and Spinach) and my kids had pasta - everything was extremely fresh and delicious. We also got... More

Outstanding experience! Food, service, everything was perfect. We stumbled on to this place by accident, but what a treat. I can't recommend any 1 item, because we tried a little bit of everything and it was all good! Only complaint was we found it on a Friday and they are closed on weekends, so only had time to eat once... More

We don't go there often but when we do, it is always a treat! Our visits have always been for lunch and there are many yummy sandwiches to choose from and a good variety of salads to choose from. You will find unusual items that you can't get anywhere else and of course, the gelato is the perfect ending for... More

There is a large assortment of homemade Italian food from lasagna to canoli. They have a large selection of panni sandwich and of course gelato....the outside Tiki Bar opens at 4 and there is karaoke nightly. Only downside is they are not open on Saturday and Sunday.

I am a local in Gulf Shores and too often have wished there was a Gelato Joe's at the beach, however, the difference in the 2014 reviews and the reviews from 2015 suggest a too common problem here in South Alabama...good help is difficult to find. The variety and preparation of food at Gelato Joe's is second to none, well... More
