Delicious Gelato!

Delicious Gelato that is very fresh and silky smooth. This gelato place in Española Way in South Beach is a great way to cool off or just indulge your sweet tooth. It's a little pricey, but then again it's Miami Beach.

The gelato was nice enough but the price was ridiculous, for 2 icecreams with a few scoops each we paid almost $20. And to feel like you are inconveniencing the staff by asking for tastes as you don't want to pick one you don't like for that price, just wasn't worth all the fuss.

Glad I checked Trip Advisor for local ice cream shops because that's how I found this spot. I didn't think it was that expensive considering the quality of the gelato and the South Beach location. One of the best I've ever had including gelato I've had in Italy. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. We tried four flavors:... More

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
