Just like Italy!

The gelato was perfect! Tasted just like you would get in Italy. The display was ideal and the ambience was fun. It was a cold day, and they had ample space to seat our group of 10 people inside. Very pleased and would go back again!

I do love gelato, and I'd read other reviews of this place. Its just off the main drag (Orange Ave) and close to McP's Irish Pub and Grill. Its small so you might have a little wait, BUT the gelato is Sooooo good!!!

The guy behind the counter was knowledgeable and funny! And I had a small cup with two flavors. It was more than enough!!!

This is without a doubt some of the best gelato that I have ever tasted. I particularly like the Pear and Opera flavors together. Yum!

I don't usually like gelato, but my husband loves it so I oblige. We have had gelato in many places in Italy and this gelato is hands down the best we have ever had. My husband agrees. My only regret is that we waited until our last day in Coronado to go there. I would have gone everyday. And they... More

You can try before you buy and it is always fun to sample a few before deciding. You can select a few flavors if you just can't decide on one. I had a... More

Sorry folks, only tried one flavor, chocolate, not sorbet. It tasted like a dark chocolate, smooth, creamy and frozen firm, not runny. The waffle cone was crisp and fresh. The only sadness was that the spoons were those teeny little plastic Italian spoons and all of a sudden it was all gone. This is serious good Italian gelato. Next time... More
