This is my favourite ice cream in San Francisco. It's not quite as good as in Italy but definitely very good. The location is nice too.

This was the best gelato I've had since Rome, Italy. He has a wide variety of flavors and it really is like the real stuff. Wilson and I shared a 4 flavor of chocolates and tiramisu and Lucy and Ansley had more fruity flavors. Good price too!

We had half espresso bean and half cafe mocha...what's not to love??? The perfect ending to our dinner and far better than restaurant dessert. Be aware, though...they only take cash...worth the trip to the ATM!!!

The guy was friendly, let me try lots of samples, and then I settled on the banana walnut, fat free! So good! The price was right - under $4.00 for a small, which was still a good portion! He even broke a $50.00 bill for me, happily, when he had a ATM right beside me!

Tried the double chocolate of course it was a hit with the Kid! Did not care for the coconut. Prices were reasonable. Pleasantly surprised---all of the SF eateries seemed to be well priced for the location.

This has always been our fave ice cream/sorbet to have in San Francisco. Although some of the great flavors have disappeared over the years (e.g., Joseph Saint Almond and Banana Walnut), there are still some awesome ones remaining. Try the Dark Chocolate and the Coppa Mista! In general the sorbet is intense and the ice cream is rich and creamy--well... More

Naia feels better, but if you're looking for something different in the area, this can do the job. Average, but reliable.

We chance across this outlet while wandering around. The shop was not kinda of nondescript. We walked in and looked at the ice cream and I was immediately drawn to the chunky pieces of pistachios in the ice cream. We ordered that and had probably the best pistachio ice cream, ever!

We live in Texas and needless to say, there's no place that has gelato that tastes anything like this. It's creamy, cold, and delicious. We went two days in a row! It is a bit pricey, and the cups are a bit on the small side, but if you like gelato it's good.
