OMG - I sampled mango (was ok), lemon cookie & their top seller... Salted Caramel. Well, I didn't like the salted caramel - but LOVED the lemon cookie. omg omg omg. I want MORE now! Then, hubby messed it all up. He got the Chocolate Hazelnut and I almost had to beat him over the head to make him share... More

This tiny little ice cream shop serves tasty Gelato in the heart of La Jolla on Prospect Street. Generous portions. Not too expensive, good food! Refreshing and can eat at the place or take it for a stroll around this wonderful village!

This great little shop has a broad selection of fun and delicious flavors of gelato. It is a little slice of Italy and a fun stop while browsing through the stores in LaJolla Village. Don't miss the Salted Carmel. It's to die for!

We recently spent a week in/around La Jolla and could not stay away from this place. Unbelievable Gelato and great service to complete the experience.

This is our second visit in three years. It is as good today as it was when we first came 3 years ago. A little price of Italian gelato on the west coast.

We enjoyed having dessert here. They have a good selection of sorbet and gelato flavors. I had the chocolate hazelnut and mocha fudge crunch. My husband had the chocolate gelato. We both liked our choices- very flavorful and creamy. We both had the small size- plenty to enjoy!

We've had the real thing, gelato in Rome, and can say that Gelateria Frizzante did a great job with their gelato. They had many flavors, we visited two days and were very happy. The service was good for how busy it was. We will go back and highly recommend.

What else to say beside that it is real Italian Style Ice Cream ? Enjoy the Pistachio Ice Cream :-) You can try the Mint and chocolat chips :) I would love an outside seating. But you can walk to see the sea Lions in la Jolla :-)
