My husband and I brought our son here on a week night. It was quite busy and the wait was a little long. The folks in front of us were sampling every flavor, hence the long line. They had two people behind the counter but the line didn't seem to be moving. You can't see the flavors until you get... More

Stop by after Mexican food next door. The Gelato was divine and the latte hit the spot of this kind of Hot Escondido night. Plenty of free parking across the street in the city parking lot.

Stopped by with all my little men yesterday, my husband & our 3 boys. We consider ourselves gelato consumers from Vancouver, Canada and this was some of the best we have tasted. We all had different flavours and it was almost impossible to get the boys to let us have a taste of theirs. So smooth and creamy with obviously... More

The gelato at EscoGelato is made fresh and is, in my opinion, the best outside of Italy. It is so creamy and the flavors are changed on a daily basis. We all love this place. They also serve some food but I have only been there for the gelato so I can't make a comment about that.

I LOVE this place. My favorite gelato, Apricot/Goat cheese is so delightful, just the right blend of sweet and cheesy! All are made from locally sourced products. Don't forget a salad or panini. Guaranteed to please. The rustic off main street location reminds of the yummy little hidden gems in Seattle. Even though I stated my last visit was in... More

We visited Italy about a year ago and fell in love with gelato. It was great to come home and find a gelato place in our home town. We visit EscoGelato when ever we have dinner in town. This is where we get our desert.

Small, family run place that has different flavors all the time. Good prices. They also have some sandwiches / food items at lunch. Highly recommend.

You will not find better gelato then here. The friendly local setting provides the perfect destination after dinner or when walking the City at night. Breakfast is also delightful. All the food ingredients are from local farms. Enjoy
