Worth the wait

They have a large selection of flavors. There was a 20 min line up when we went but it was worth the wait. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Whenever I visit Mountain View (a few times a year) I always visit here. Usually I'll have dinner somewhere on Castro and end up here for dessert. A small cup with one or two flavors is usually just the right amount. The Dark Chocolate along with Burgandy Cherry is probably my favorite combination.

It is an infusion of flavors in your mouth that maximizes your taste buds the second it lands in your mouth. There are many Gelato creameries out there however this has to be in the top 5, Don't miss stopping in.

My daughter and I were in Mt. View and had to check out Gelato Classico. Line was long but we weren't intimidated. There were lots of options for flavors and the service was good. Gelato was refreshing and tasty. They do not make their gelato on site so each flavor had a different consistency depending on where they sourced it... More

I've had gelato in Rome and this place is just as great! So many unique flavors - I love the Bavarian mint :) Definitely worth the wait!

They have great flavors of Gelato, and Sorbet. I went back a couple of times on my trip. There was a line out of the door in the evening. It was worth the wait. This is a cash only business.

We saw the sign from afar "Voted the best Ice Cream" and laughed it off. But no sooner had we sampled a few than we were looking intently at all the Awards on the wall. This is the best Ice Cream place. You must try the ginger gelatio, the caramelho, the pistachio.... They serve generously and with a big smile.... More

We had an amazing Italian dinner and wine two doors down from this tiny ice cream shop. Imagine sitting there on the patio of another restaurant for dinner and your mouth is longing for Italian ice cream dessert at another establishment two doors down.That was us that night. LoL! The buzz at this shop was like a football game concession... More

I have visited the place because of lot of good reviews at Trip Advisor, however, I was disappointed. The ice cream is nothing special, it is not creamy, it is far away from real Italian ice cream that you can get in Italy. Maybe there are no better ice cream places around, but this ice is not better then some... More
