I believe this place opened about 1 year ago. They feature 32 flavors of gelato & sorbetto made fresh daily. They also serve Lavazza Italian coffee - a nice alternative to the ubiquitous Starbucks. They serve frappes and also afogato: gelato 'drowned' in hot chocolate or espresso! Some of my favorite, unique flavors include HB Sea Salt Caramel and Oatmeal Cookie. I would love to write a review for this awesome shop! Visitors to Huntington Beach need to know!

Must go for the affogato!

Try the snickers gelato in an affogato! Excellent! For the few of you who don't like snickers, there are a lot of flavors to choose from. Enough that it makes it a tough choice. Must return!

They sell a small for $3.50 and will give you up to 3 flavors. They were more than generous with their samples and the portions. So if you like salted caramel, this one is plenty salty. Mix it with the coconut and prepare to visit gelato heaven

The gelato is amazing here. It taste's just like you were in Italy. There are many different flavors and it's hard to choose as they are all so wonderful. Come try a flavor!

great treat and yummy dessert on a summer day after dinner. After traveling in other countries, I've tasted some very fabulous gelato and the US has a ways to go, but Mangiamo gelato is fresh and flavours are good. Pistachio is always a favorite, but you really can't go wrong. They have taste samples so don't be shy and ask... More

Many different varieties to chooses from. Line forms quickly. Family of 4 was $18 and change. Girls seem to get annoyed when asked for sample. Good product just not a great product. Good enough for a cool down after a hot day.

It is so sad the service we got. We r locals and we were treated so badly by the owner. I wanted to order a kids size because I was dieting. We were told no. We explained we were locals and come there all the time. The owner literally asked for our ID and then said he didn't believe we... More

I love this place. Almost every flavor that I've tried is good. They let you try out as many as you want before you buy it. They charge you by the cup not the amount. I usually get between 2-3 flavors in one cup. I love the banana creme pie, mom oatmeal cookie, and black cherry. My wife loves the... More

I ate some gelato here in May 2015, with some friends, and we all loved it. The staff were all super friendly and helpful. There are lots of the different flavors. The quality is great, portions large, and taste is excellent. Prices are very reasonable. Looking forward to eating desert here again soon.
