Outstanding gelato, good price and nice staff. Gelato is displayed in a fun wheel of flavors to chose from. Best to eat outside on the beautiful Espanola Way and people watch!! Will return!!

Loved the area - Espanola Way and the coconut gelato. Is expensive, though. Cute tables out the front are shaped like ice-cream sundaes.

Four of us stopped here on charming Espanola Way for a gelato break. They have 2 small tables outside with 4 chairs and some seating inside. Lovely way the gelato is presented--it goes around on a flat wheel and you can see the 10 to 12 choices. Delicious gelato, but it cost over $24 for a one scoop cone and... More

Great location, gelato was pretty tasty but we ordered 4 tiny cones and small waters and it was $31! Not two scoop monsters, tiny kid sized ones.

This is a tiny gelateria on Espanola street, which is a gourmet ghetto passage in Miami beach. So, the location is really nice, with outside seating, and other small cafes and music around, with large trees overhead. However, this is NOT the best ice cream in Florida, as many sources will say. Here is the breakdown: Texture: just creamy enough... More

The ice cream is produced by the shop itself and it gathers the creamy and freshness in their unique products. Their raw materials are all natural and it there is a "homemade" touch in the flavor and texture - simply great - there are only two tables on the sidewalk to sit and enjoy!

the varieties and taste of ice cream is very nice. After a nice dinner, we had these delicious ice cream. I think it is made from natıral milk. I strongly recommend to try.

We first stumbled upon this store in 2013 and decided to come back this year because their gelato is delicious! Needless to say, the store is gorgeous and very welcoming! The staff was polite and we came here once to get our gelato-fix, and another for refreshing milkshakes on a hot day! Both were fantastic and I highly recommend this... More

Crave for ice cream / Gelato, on Espanola way, near The Clay Hotel and surrounded by bunch of restaurants & hotels. This small shop has variety of gelatos, displayed on rotary pit. There are ice-cream cone shaped seats outside the shop to lounge & enjoy the atmosphere.
