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!

thank God i found this place and didn't have to resort to some bland ice cream shop (no offense to ice cream shops). The portion was more than enough and the taste was better than i was expecting.

The Nutella banana crepe was just incredible! I also had cherry chocolate chip and would most definitely get it again! The gal that served us was very friendly!

This is a great gelato shop! There are so many delicious flavors that it is hard to choose!! Luckily you can have samples to your heart's content and 3, 4 or 5 flavors in a cup or cone depending on the size chosen. The taste reminds me of very good gelato in Italy!! I will return again when at the... More

Mmmmm!!! Our whole family LOVES to come here! I don't think that we've ever tried a flavor that we did not like. They provided a gelato station for our son's bar mitzvah at the local Hyatt, and it was a huge hit. Mangiamo!!!

So many flavors and I was short on time so did not sample. Instead just jumped in with both feet and took the offer for three scoops muxed. Not the best combination, but I was happy with all three. Selected the banana chocolate chip, oatmeal cookie and salted caramel. My favorite was the banana. If I ever get back out... More

Very good but has some american touch to it. What I mean by that is that some flavors are way too sweet. Overall the quality is great but this is not the best gelato place in the states. The texture is very smooth, however I feel that water somehow gets into the gelato as i have noticed that it melt... More

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
