Love the alley way here; it is so charming. Had gelato twice here. First time the kid wouldn't give me a teeny scoop of vanilla for my seven pound dog -- so I didn't leave a tip -- wanted me to purchase a small. Next time we visited, the girl gave my dog a few spoonfuls in a cup. She... More

Stopped at Laguna Beach and saw everyone walking around eating luscious looking gelato. Followed the crowd and came upon this wonderful place. They offer a wide range of in house made gelato and homemade waffle cones. A little pricey but worth it.

Have been here on two visits and was impressed by the variety of flavors available. The location is a little difficult to find but the ambience is very nice.

We stopped here to end our Flavors of Laguna food tour. It was a perfect ending. The gelato was delicious. I had a chocolate and strawberry. Everyone was raving about their scoops as they exited the cafe!

If you are looking for authentic Italian gelato, Gelato Paradiso in Laguna Beach has it! Multiple favors, creamy texture, fabulous taste, and great prices. We loved it!

The Best Gelato. We traveled to Italy and had a lot of gelato and when we came home to our very own Gelato Paradiso it was better then in Italy. It is home made and full of flavor. And the little ally setting is so sweet.

I absolutely love the gelato here. The flavors are great and the staff is very friendly. We had to wait for 20 minutes but it was worth the wait. Definitely get the gelato and either walk around the beach or just enjoy the ice cream on a bench.

The gelato was amazing; simply the best we have ever had, as was the cone. We had cherry-vanilla and chocolate. It is hard to find, down its little ally.
