What can I say I you want good gelato go here!

I prefer to recommend local spots and not chains but this place does it right. I wish i could recommend a local place over it but I can't.

Excellent sea salt caramel gelato but the Italian hot chocolate was the best hot chocolate my wife and I ever had. Advice is to eat dinner at any of the amazing restaurants nearby and then come here for dessert and coffee!

This gelato was as good as gelato I've had in Italy. It was creamy and flavorful. The portions were huge. Can't wait to go back.

Being a customer with lactose sensitivity I was already assuming I was not going to take part in the treat my wife and friend were about to have. I asked the server if they had any non lactose flavors. Not only did they have it but they had 6 flavors with one being chocolate. I had three flavors which were... More

Staff was efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. Delicious! There were even three or four sorbet flavors, two of which(berry and chocolate) were as creamy as ice cream.

The ice cream here tastes like the Gelato you find only in Italy. If you like Gelato you will love this place.

We went here after dinner based on the reviews and were glad we did. Our favorite flavor was one called something like Maple Syrup Waffle Cone. It was excellent.

After reading the reviews I bookmarked this place to check out. I wasn't disappointed! Great variety and absolutely delicious, the best gelato I've had in years. But be forewarned, it's addictive- I'm heading there again before the weeks end.

Best I've had outside of San Giminiano, rated #1 in the world. Wish they had a larger selection. We tried the salted caramel, Stratiaceli, Coconut, Amaretto, Cookie Crush.

Their gelato is top notch and the service is excellent. They let you try different flavors and work with you to make sure you're happy with your purchase! Seriously the best gelato in St. Pete!
