Love this place, small right on the canyon road before main beach. Amazing Ice Cream not a rip off at all. Waffle cones tasted so fresh not stale, always go to this place to get my ice cream. Outstanding FLAVORS!

I had my gelato made into a thickshake rather than just an icecream cup because I had been craving a good shake for ages and this did not disappoint! The flavour was delicious, but it was seriously so thick I could barely suck it up the straw, and that was exactly what I asked for, very happy!

Dolce Gelato is a real treat. The moment you enter you know you are in for something very special. The gelato is beautifully presented and there are many flavors from which to choose. It's located in the walkway between Nick's and Watermarc (there's even a convenient parking structure in back), which makes it easy to sneak in quickly and indulge!... More

The flavor and quality of their gelato is fantastic. Great selection as well. Can't be beat in So Cal. Staff is friendly and helpful. Not easy to find but well worth the effort!
