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.

After discovering our hotel Continental breakfast lacking, we stumbled on this place and went in. Nice selection of breakfast sandwiches. I had a panini croissant with egg, sausage and cheese. Very tasty, crisp, and large and got an order of hash browns with it. The hash browns were a little greasy, but good. My friend had a plate with ham,... More

Went there this morning for breakfast. Food was very blend below average. They made a mistake with my order and service was horrible. They kept speaking Spanish between each other in front of me while trying to figure out if the order they had in their hand was mine. Took it back and then brought it back again. To cut... More

My daughter and I ate lunch here while vacationing from Ohio for a few days. Never had gelato before and loved it! Much better than ice cream. I fell in love with the coconut and she fell in love with the pistachio and the young employee who took our order and served us twice. She was bummed she never learned... More
