Website
Update restaurant details
Cuisines: Coffee Shop, Dessert, Ice Cream
Description: 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!

Best gelato I've ever had. 70% less fat than ice cream and 100% more flavor. Free samples and just 400 steps from the beach.

We stopped here one evening on the way back to our hotel on a chilly night. The ladies working there were happy to provide sample after sample so we could choose what we really wanted. We took 3 large cups to go-multiple flavors in each cup. This was way too much food even though a large cup seems really small.... More

I believe this is the best gelato I've had nation-wide! I had the Piccolo, a trio of my chosen three. The coconut was very fresh tasting, the sea salt and caramel is unique and quite tasty, as was the Nutella-banana combination. I attended the Tuesday evening street fair and stopped in Mangiamo's for dessert since their door was open. Extremely... More

We stopped in for gelato, then for a walk on the Pier. I will say the gelato was tasty, not the best I have had, but still, pretty good :) The staff was very friendly, and the establishment is clean. I walked past it the other day and I could smell sweet fresh waffle cones, Ill give this place another... More

Stopped in as we were exploring the downtown area and so glad we did. They have a ton of flavors and all were outstanding. The staff was very friendly and allowed us to try several flavors before we decided on the ones we wanted. The prices were not bad either!

This is a small but very good gelato place. Helpful staff gave my as many samples as I wanted. Although there were many great flavors, the hazelnut by itself was outstanding. Would seek this place out on future trips.

I've had gelato in Italy and this compared! Not a huge fan of gelato in general, but this made me want more! Highly recommend and next time I'm going to have it affagato style! Yum!

Stopped by for some coffee after having dinner, but couldn't resist the large selection of gelato/sorbetto. After trying many samples, I went with S’mores and Pistachio and my wife went with Stracciatella and Tiramisu. Yum! Definitely the best Gelato I've had in the US, and maybe anywhere. Must visit destination when you're in Huntington Beach.

After visiting Italy this spring, I have been craving good Gelato! Had to make a stop after all the great reviews and traveling to Huntington Beach in September! The gelato more than lived up to the hype and satisfied my Italian Gelato craving! I went with the traditional Pistachio and Hazelnut combo! Most excellent. All the other flavors looked amazing...

I'm not very discerning when it comes to cold dairy products, and I like this place quite a bit. Lots of flavors which you can mix and match; the smallest size cup allows for 3 different flavors, and it just goes up from there. They have gelato and sorbetto available, and you can order it affogato as well. A bit... More
