I am not an ice-cream foodie but this gelato is fantastic! The only problem is that you will want more and come back again and again. My preference is the chocolate/chocolate but the salted caramel is wonderful too. Expect a line on the weekends due to the tourists in town but well worth the wait.

Delicious gelato at a reasonable price. I recommend the Ferrero Rocher and the Creme Brûlée. I would go back again.....

Always great to end a day at the beach with some cold gelato. I tried several flavors and decided to go with the mango chili lime sorbet. Very tasty kind of exotic flavor. Highly recommend if you like sweet and spicy

We didn't have the time to wait in line, but from the size of the line of people waiting to get their Gelato on this place looked amazing! Maybe next time!!

It's difficult to rate a gelato establishment when you haven't been to Italy, BUT Dolce Gelato is very good! The samples will give you a hint of what's in store so it's impossible to be disappointed with your selection. The creamy texture and the true flavors will delight your senses! Truly a nice find in the heart of Laguna Beach.

Hands down, the best gelato on this side of the world. Love the unique flavors and the old standbys like the salted maple.

This place was amazing!! A wide variety of gelato and very delicious. I have spent quite a bit of time in Italy, and feel confident in giving this place 5 stars! The only downside (which only adds to the credibility of this place) is that they're always extremely crowded.

We must have walked past three or four ice cream shops before finding Dolce Gelato. It was worth the extra few blocks! It's really easy to find right on Broadway St. Like one of the other reviews I read we've had gelato across the globe, particularly in Italy, and Dolce is better! I had a combination of Salted Caramel and... More
