On a hot, humid September day, what better than a waffle cone filled with Gelato! I stumbled into this place wandering around Charleston not quite sure what I was looking for. The service was very friendly and that cone certainly hit the spot!

This place is deserving of all the great reviews. The gelato is high quality and most flavorful. The service was fantastic as well. The fedora wearing girls are a gregarious bunch and we felt welcome to explore all the gelato possibilities. Many places in downtown Charleston are either too pretentious or just out to shake down the tourists with overpriced,... More

We popped in after dinner, and we were not disappointed! Try the Extreme Chocolate - it was AMAZING! Service was fast and friendly.

I'm usually HIGHLY critical of ice cream places. It's hard to please me with ice cream. This place did. I ordered the stracciatella and it was amazing. Very creamy and a great consistency, with great little chunks of chocolate. I would absolutely go back and order again. My wife ordered the hazelnut, which was also very high quality, although not...

Great flavors. Great service even when very busy. Try the pink grapefruit if they have it. The Affogado was delicious but needs to be in a larger container. Very messy.

Refreshing on a hot day. Very good, a bit pricey. Very friendly servers. I had hazelnut which I enjoyed. They will give you samples if you want. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because I reserve that for gelato actually bought in Italy. But, if you can't be in Italy, this is a good second choice.

I had never had gelato until this. I got to sample the flavor I ended up ordering, which was the Extreme Chocolate (I'm pretty sure that's what it was called). Service was great and the workers were very nice. The only bad part was that I had to eat my gelato so quickly (it was 100 degrees the day I... More
