Very Tasty

They had a nice array of flavors to choose from and they all tasted great! Only issue is it is Miami and Gelato melts fast so be ready when you order.

Pros: Nice flavors of gelato offered. Tasted very good on a hot day. Cons: Few flavors to choose from and a little spendy for one scoop. Better deal to get three scoops.

Pizza was disgusting and the ingredients are not fresh.The gelato taste like something you would buy from your local grocery store.Overall I would seek gelato elsewhere.

This is the best Gelato I have had in South Florida. The variety is extensive. Some of the flavors are a bit Americanized but they also have the traditional flavors you would expect. Taste like real Italian gelato. Of course, keep in mind that in Italy your taste buds are highly influenced by your surroundings. Enjoy!

This is not the tipical plastic american ice cream, this is closer to Italian sorbetto. You can taste as many flavors as you want, but please buy something after. Expensive but good.

Only good thing was the chocolate croissants which they bring in. We had pancakes which were made from some other type of batter and neither kids would eat them. I had a croissant with scrambled eggs that got pressed into a flat greasy mess. Being French I thought the coffee would at least be ok but it was so watery... More

The cookies and cream gelato is to die for. I ate breakfast and dinner at this restaurant, the service was great and the food was reasonable and well prepared. I totally enjoyed eating here.
