Great offerings, a little off the beaten path, worth the walk

I learned about this place from purchasing a Restaurant.com coupon. I had never been there before, not really knowing where they were (they are a block off Orange, so you have to know where they are, you won't find them just walking on Orange). It seems like all the locals know where this place... read more

Not sure what all the rave is about to make this the number 1 restaurant in Coronado on Trip Advisor. I am not down on this place but it's really not a restaurant unless you consider getting ice cream as dinner but overall the ice-cream is excellent - kids loved eating here after dinner. I would take the kids here... More

As good as Venice. A little pricey, like Venice and servings on the small side. My wife got a small and I got a medium, looked the same to us. Great gelato on C Street.

visiting Coronado stopped for gelato during a long walk from Ferry landing. Gelato was excellent, service great. Coffee was very delicious once it cooled down. would recommend getting a cone and strolling to the beach.

I love this place!! The gelato is so good and they have lots of dairy free choices!! The staff is always friendly, helpful, and patient even with the summer crowds. The line moves quickly. Good coffee and smoothies too. Really, you just cannot go wrong here. Just about the best gelato ever!!

Gelato was wonderful! Stracciatella was my favorite, but many fascinating flavors to choose from. Wonderfully creamy! It was a wonderful treat after a lot of walking in the hot sun. But it was busy so there was no place to sit down to enjoy it! We found a bench down the street to allow us to savor the flavor without... More

Must go- gelato is out of this world! Homemade, all natural and perfect ending to your night or afternoon snack. Don't be turned off by the line, it is worth the wait.

Nice gelato with fresh flavors. Not the best gelato ever, but still very good for a nice refreshment on a warm day on Coronado.

Great flavors of gelato. Hard to decide! Nice after dinner stop if you haven't had a dessert yet! Several fruit flavors, tiramisu, mint choc chip and others. Can also get espresso.
