Great place to stop in for a treat. Great products with genuine flavors. They offer free samples if you don't know what you want. I recommend the salted caramel frappagelto. Delicious and refreshing on a hot day. The staff was very nice and upbeat. I saw others mention they are pricey, I wouldn't disagree but they are consistent with this... More

Wow, nice surprise and perfect on a hot afternoon. Chocolate gelato is hard to beat. I appreciated the small 3 oz portions, would rather have 3 oz of something great than 12 oz of cheap ice cream.

My family group of 8 stopped in for some gelati after a walking tour of Charleston. It was not busy and the staff was very helpful. We were able to try multiple samples of the ice cream before we made our selection. The ice cream was creamy, rich, soft, and delicious! I would definitely recommend you visit Belgian Gelato, just...

Mixed Belgian Chocolate and Creme Caramel Gelato upon recommendation by the server and found it to taste like a snickers candy bar! So yummy! Belgian Gelato is near Waterfront Park and is a great place to visit during those hot summer afternoons in Charleston.

Let me go ahead and explain this: gelato is NOT the same as ice cream. While ice cream is 10% fat, gelato is about 5% due to having more milk instead of cream. Fat coats the mouth and blunts flavoring. Gelato is churned slower and therefore is denser with less air (by 25%) taking up space. Ice cream is served... More

Belgian Gelato is right in front of the Waterfront Park, which is a great location because you can walk on the pier with your cold snack! They have amazing gelato and sorbet, the best sorbet I have had. They make the sorbet in house fresh and you can tell right away! The staff was very nice, welcoming, and generous with... More

One of the biggest disappointment while traveling in USA were mediocre or at the best decent ice creams. There were some exceptions and among them was Belgian Gelato. We were pleasure to enjoy really good chocolate ice cream. Pistachio was a little bit "artificial", but still ok. Prices are rather high - Belgian Waffle cone with two scoops - $4.95,... More

We stopped in to get some gelato so we could take it out to Waterfront Park and relax after a long day of walking around. I ended up with the pistachio (which the girls said was their favorite) but really liked the pango (pineapple mango) as well. We thought about going back later so I could get that flavor as... More
