If you're ever in the Hermosa Beach area, this is the perfect treat. They have delicious gelato, great flavors, and the view can't be beat.

Nice little gelato place along Hermosa Ave. Tons of unique flavors of both gelato and sorbet. They also serve cappuccino which my daughter said was good. Being from the midwest - where no one even knows what gelato is - I can't comment on whether they have the best gelato or not, as it's the only gelato I have eaten.... More

A small cone or cup can hold up to three flavors for under $5, with exotic options like strawberry lavender, wedding cake, and black pepper olive oil, you can chose something new or in my case, two old flavors, like coconut chocolate rum and extra dark chocolate. The perfect way to end a day is with a stroll along the... More

Over-priced for what you get but it is really yummy, if you have a sweet tooth. Service kinda feels like a Carvel considering how much they charge. LOTS of flavors including wedding cake! Cute little seating area with great magazines for you to read as you drink your so-so coffee and indulge your big sweet-tooth!

I LOVE the gelato at this place. They have all different fun and very fresh flavors. I live in Hermosa and it's easy #1 in the area, actually in all of Southbay if gelato is what you're looking for. Unfortunately their coffee drinks are nothing to brag about. I would normally forgive this but the last time I was there,... More

From the Ownership to the flavors not to mention how comfortable it is to sit back and read one of the various travel magazines or Lonely Planet guides to Italy... this is a great landmark that I visit over and over again.

The only drawback to this place is that it is seriously hard to decide on a flavor because they are all so amazing. No worries, the staff very generously let you sample as many as you like. Banoffee, Salted Carmel, Violet, Waffle Cone, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Black Sesame...just to name a few. Even if you order the smallest sized... More

This place is a must stop if you are in Hermosa Beach. Excellent gelato in innovative flavors like toasted sesame and pepe nero (pepper and olive oil). The texture and taste of all four flavors was excellent and the woman behind the counter was so friendly!

I'm an ice cream, custard, gelato addict (unrepentent) and found this little place via yelp or the like... great place! Good flavors (tons of flavor in their gelatos), good variety, very nice service and a good vibe in the place. Great before or after the comedy club or dinner or a day at the beach.
