Homemade deliciousness

I mean, it's homemade gelato. They make it on site, and it's darn good. I had the cookies and cream. I wish I were there right now to get more of it.

The location is ideal for a break from shopping on Beverly Street. The gelato comes in some DELICIOUS flavors! I enjoyed the pumpkin pie and my husband had one that was made with rice. The rice sounds odd, but it was fabulous! Considered getting a packed quart to go, but it would have melted before we returned to our lodging.

The best ice cream you will ever eat! Unique blends and SO delicious. Great, friendly staff. Be sure to sample a few flavors before making your final decision. Reasonably priced.

We were in the mood for ice cream after visiting a museum in the area when we stopped here. While we have been in ice cream shops with a larger selection of flavors we found the selection adequate. On the day that we were there they did not have any "no sugar added" or "sugar free" selections. . . .... More

We were looking for an ice cream shop for our daughter's birthday while on a trip. When we say the menu online we decided to stop. I have been disappointed in gelato places before but since they also have ice cream I figured it was worth a try. I can't say how the ice cream was but the gelato was... More

Excellent selection of gelato. The hazelnut was great; so was the cappuccino biscotto. The scoop size was perfect.

Love all the flavors , cocoa ancho and pineapple basil are favorites for me. Regular ice cream pales in comparison.

Split Banana offers many flavors of tasty gelato. The booths have board games that you can play with your companions. Well worth the visit.
