Wow!

We stumbled upon this place by accident and we were glad we did. They had a ton of flavors and one was better than the next. Don't miss this place!

A perfect evening is to have dinner at Watermarc, then enjoy gelato at Paradiso which is just steps away on Pepper Tree Lane. Often there are long lines on the summer weekends, but you won't regret waiting. They make their cones which are delicious, and there is an incredible assortment of heavenly flavors!

The gelato is great with a good choice of flavored. Their specialty cakes are terrific but not made on site but at another of their outlets.

This small shop is nestled in the back of a building on Pacific Coast highway. Skip the ice cream parlor on the corner by the beach and ask for directions to this lovely spot. Huge selection of gelato and homemade waffle cones are not to be missed!

OK, I loved this place. I ate ice cream from here two days in a row. It smells AMAZING. The guy said it was the cones. I guess they make them there. I want some ice cream from there right now. I had the hazelnut ice cream which was delicious. I had kids with me and tasted all their ice... More

The gelato was awesome here. I had pistachio, my husband had coffee or espresso, I'm not sure how they called it, and my kids loved the straciatella!

My wife and I just stumbled upon Gelato Paradiso and only because they're located in a super quaint historic building. The Gelato was great, the staff were friendly and the Gelato was great. Thanks

You'll often find a line for this gelato. A perfect dessert after a nice meal in one of the area restaurants in Laguna. Hidden in a internal courtyard but worth the search.

Truly delicious gelato in many flavors. Very hard to choose. I had the chocolate chip in a small cup and couldn't finish it!!!
