Certificate of Excellence 2014
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!

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

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!
