Great little shop off the beaten path--the salted carmel is fabulous, and the small was a great size for us. Sit and stay and look out the window, or head back out walking, but make a visit here!

Stopped in for a quick cone, many flavors at a decent price. But, the water dispenser could use some attention. Small place off the main roadway near the beach and many other restaurants. Been the a couple of times.

We stopped here while on our trolley tour. We love gelato and this place does not disappoint. I loved the salted caramel. The lemon was more like a granita than a gelato but still tasted great. My husband had chocolate and strawberry and enjoyed both.

Staying on Coronado for a week with our family of 4, this place became a daily must stop. They offer a dozen or so of gelato flavors which they change daily, e.g., pistachio, vanilla, caramel with sea salt, several fruit flavors- including raspberry, pear(our daugther's favorite), chocolate chip, malaga(rum and raisin), opera( my wife's favorite with hazelnut and other flavors),...

Very authentic gelato, however served a little warm. Was already starting to get very melty by the time you had paid and walked out the door. Despite this, the flavor was full-bodied and permeated each bite. Definitely an authentic gelato at a reasonable price.

Most Gelato that I have tried over the years does not taste much different than ice cream. Perhaps a little lighter and usually a somewhat different selection of flavors. But not so with Nado Gelato. This stuff is light, fluffy and bursting with flavor! I think that this place is relatively new since we have vacationed often over the years... More

The variety of Gelato is great. The staff is very friendly and accommodating if you want to taste a flavor. A few tables outside for enjoying your dessert outdoors.

I wanted to try Nado Gelato because it was rated highly on this website and got great reviews. Now, I have no idea why this place was ranked 2nd of 66 restaurants in Coronado. Upon entering Nado Gelato, I noticed a strange smell that was anything but appetizing. The decor was dumpy and the pistachio gelato (which I love elsewhere)... More

Pretty, sparkling clean little store with a friendly welcome and good prices. I like gelato in a crispy, tasty cone, and this one measured up to what I enjoyed in Italy. The chocolate gelato I chose was smooth and delicious.

Took 4 family members there, got out for $23, not bad. Very clean, good selection, pleasant servers. Worth another trip!
