The best gelato! Great variety of flavors. We had good service and the price was reasonable for a small cup.

Wonderful looking display of ice cream in varying flavours, once you've located the shop at the end of a picturesque alleyway. I went for a refreshing watermelon, while my husband's caramel was so sweet that he had to admit defeat - just get the small cup!

Gelato Paradiso is fantastic. Totally fantastic. You can sample quite a few flavors before you choose, but you really can't go wrong. And the price is great.

When I say fresh cones I mean right before your order so the cone is still warm! The gelato is silky smooth and mouthwatering delicious making you crave more. The line may be long but it moves quickly so don't despair and find out why it's amazing.

I search out this little place every time I'm in Laguna Beach. It's really worth it -- all these Trip Advisor review are right. The line moves and it's a wonderful little walkway/courtyard while you wait. Enjoy!

Wonderful flavors and a local favorite! There is always a line at night, but it moves quickly and our experience was that everyone in line was having a great time, so there was no moaning and groaning. In spite of the long line, they are gracious about offering tastes, so mix/match and enjoy!

Gelato was soo good! Also one thing that sets them apart is they make their waffle cones right there behind counter & they are delish! Smells heavenly! We had about a 15 min wait but it was worth it!
