Came here for the first time tonight and loved it. The great news is that they have a very good selection of dairy-free gelato,and lots of tropical flavors you can't find on the mainland. They had mango, lilikoi, guava, pineapple (made with Maui pineapple) and more. I can't wait to come back and try other flavors. Highly recommended!

We stopped here for a scoop and had a hard time deciding what flavor story have. My wife had the sorbet and I had the coffee and both were great. The place was clean and the server was very nice.

Glad we visited. It was a little hard to find, but worth it. I enjoyed it for the unique favors offered, not the mainstream you find on every corner.

Gelato was good however atmosphere and and staff not so much. Service was descent but very unfriendly for Hawaii. nearly every place we went we were always at least greeted with a smile and an Aloha....not here. Server seemed not happy we stopped in late on Sunday.

Three of us had good gelato offered with hospitality and warmth. And our server over-filled the containers! Awesome.

I enjoyed the gelato here so much that I came back three times! The location is nothing special at all, however the gelato is delicious. My favourite flavour was the POG (passionfruit, orange and guava). The prices are on the higher side however the gelato was worth it. The staff were also friendly and allowed me to sample different flavours... More

While there was nothing special about the location (no views or ambience), go here if you're nearby and try a few of the many enticing gelato flavors. The small staff on hand was very friendly, and glad to offer samples and suggestions before you make the hard choice of which ones to order. The quality was excellent. Not cheap, but... More
