Delicious Gelato in Downtown Tybee

If you want a quick dessert to cool you off in Tybee, this is the ideal spot. Handcrafted gelato at a reasonable price, all of which is delicious. They give you free samples of any flavor, which is important when your 5 year old is trying to decide between the 12-15 options. You can really taste... read more

I had the banana praline. The sample had praline and a good flavor of banana. The gelato was sticky and grainy and evidently the only "praline" part was in the sample. You could really taste the banana which was nice, but I prefer a smooth gelato, not a grainy one. I wouldn't go back. Pricey too.

It was expensive, but good. Not sure I would see them being able to charge that much outside of a tourist location like they do, but at least the quality left us feeling better about paying $4(ish) a scoop!

Beach visits aren't the same without a visit for ice cream. Seaside sweets offers more than just smooth silky Italian Gelato but also ice cream, and bulk candy by the 1/4 pound! Loads of flavors and free sample tastes. Can't go wrong and worth the visit. Get a cup, and sit outside and watch the crowd going up and down... More

Great place for gelato after dinner....or any time of day. The staff (of one) was very friendly and the gelato was delicious. With 5 of us, we tried 7 different flavors and not one was bad.

A great spot for a treat anytime of day. The Gelato is scrumptious! Open late for a tasty after dinner treat.

This was, for most of our family< our first taste of gelato. My husband was very eager for the rest of us to taste. We all tried a different flavor and it was wonderful. Even he was impressed. Prices were not to bad, and the bowls were perfect. We will be back!

Wonderful butter pecan ice cream. When back on 16th street I'll get me another scoop of butter pecan.

Great place to go to pick up some gelato and walk down Tybrisa Street. Lots of flavors to choose from. $3.50 for a small is a little pricey but it tastes good! They also have a small variety of candy (in jars like a candy shop) and a few pralines and bear claws - not a huge selection of sweets... More
