After visiting the Laguna Art Festival we needed to cool off with gelato. On our way to the free shuttle bus we found Dolce! The place was busy, a good sign. We tasted a few and made our selections. Truth be told...they were all very good and I suggest enjoying them your selves...

This Gelato shop offers great tasting gelatos with fresh-made waffle cones. The varieties of flavors is extensive. Good spot to get your gelato fix.

There are lots of fancy ice cream places about now but this is about the best I have ever seen. It's in Central Laguna Beach. There is a very good selection of terrific ice creams and sorbets. You are welcome to ask for a taste before you commit. The flavours are superb. They have a sofa and some chairs and... More

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.
