The fruit gelato is incredible! I got peach and raspberry, but was really blown away by the peach flavor. DANG SON. They had a tiramisu flavor that was basically gone when I got there, so I imagine that's probably REALLY good too!

Thisis my kids and I favorite place in downtown to get a gelato. The price is pricey but what a treat! There are different flavors of gelatos which sometimes gets changed around each month. I like how I am able to sample a flavor before deciding what I want to eat. The staff are friendly, helpful and always have a... More

Coolato is always a great dessert choice. We've been going every month or so since they opened. I love that they cycle their gelato and sorbetto selections so often - there's always something new to try. The staff is always nice, the building is always clean, and we love their back porch. The Azteca is my absolute favorite flavor! If... More

Stopped in for the lunch special which was just the right amount of food. Roast beef Panini and side salad and fruit were delicious. The lunch meal also came with a sliver of gelato cake. I was slightly irritated that they brought me the wrong flavor as I do not like chocolate. It was gladly replaced, but when I asked... More

My favorite gelato ... Reminds me of Europe. Too small, too busy, and just great! It always leaves me wanting more...especially on a hot day, but fortunately for me, they also make gelato cakes that you can take home! I would come here year round if I lived here year round.

You can ask for a taste before you decide. I had mango and pineapple sorbet. It was yummy. There a chairs and tables outside and inside. The gelato also looked really good. Definitely need to come back and try more.

Try this place for not only the Gelato, but the other food items. I've eaten here numerous times and have always had a pleasant experience. Their soups are probably the best I have ever had. Their sandwiches and salads are excellent too. Even their Gelato cake! There is nothing bad to say about this place. If you are in town,... More

Very bright, and cheerful atmosphere. Staff welcoming. A nice place to share lunch. But the best things about Coolato are all the gelato offerings. Great anytime of the day or year. Go on in and get your real taste of Italia!
