While visiting the battery and walking around the city, I enjoyed a small cup of salted-caramel gelato along with a medium caramel macchiato for a few pennies under $10, but I honestly loved every single bite of this delicious, cool treat, one tiny, plastic spoonful at a time It was the perfect compliment to the macchiato. Both wonderfully made and... More

Lucky we got this in a bowl. A little boy had his in a cone and the ice cream was leaking and falling out. Flavor was just OK.

My wife had hazelnut praline, but could find no evidence of nuts and I had a salted caramel ice cream, which tasted of nothing much at all, My ice was too soft and did not seem to be proper ice cream. There is a much better place on market street, go there instead. Michael, Nottingham, UK.

A tradition with my husband and I! Every time we visit Charleston we HAVE to get Gelato from Belgian Gelato. The workers are always incredibly nice and helpful. The gelato here is excellent! I recommend the Nutella or the Pistachio, and it's extra good if you get it Belgian Style! Belgian style they dip the cone inside with chocolate and... More

We went here twice in one day on our trip because we liked it so much! The staff is really friendly and the gelato is delicious! Perfect place to grab dessert and walk around downtown or go have a seat and watch for dolphins in the harbor!

Not the best gelato we've ever had, but they did have some pretty creative flavors such as Nutella that the kids enjoyed. It was a bit on the expensive side ($5/scoop) but it is in a very touristy area so that's to be expected.

We stopped by here, a stop we often make when in Charleston, tonight, to grab a bit of gelato. They have some great flavors, and the Gelato is always top notch. Definitely recommend.

We were wandering the city on a hot day and decided to duck into a Belgian Gelato shop we passed by. What a great find! The AC was on and the gelato was delicious. It was a nice break during our visit.
