Really great food!!!

Although everything looked great, I highly recommend the Nutella & Banana Crepes. Absolutely delicious. We had a large group so our food didn't arrive at the same time but no one complained given the quality and taste of our food. By the way, make sure to top off your meal with a small ice cream... read more

I love gelato, but not so much here. I got samples of the salted caramel and the pistachio (two of my favorite kinds in Italy), but they weren't very sweet. Feeling bad asking for another sample, I decided to just go for the coconut. Luckily, that was better, but still not great. I had much better in a place in... More

It's hard tomfind fresh gelato, which is why this is one of the best places I've bought gelato. There is a nice variety of about a dozen flavors. All employees were very friendly and the cashier was a native Sicilian visiting - what a nice touch!! The only suggestion I have would be to offer more flavors unique to Italian... More

We almost walked by this little sweet shop, but boy am I glad we stopped. We enjoyed the best gelato since Italy! The dark chocolate gelato was the best ever! Hand-made chocolates and specialty deserts are also available.

Such a cute little place! The gelato was delicious! There was seating inside or out. We only had dessert there, but the rest of the menu looked great!

Small location with seating for about 30. Excellent authentic gelato with a huge selection of chocolate flavors. I recommend the chocolate hazelnut. A great palce for a hot afternoon or desert after dinner.

Wow, this place made me go back in time when I lived in Italy. Their ice cream is original and they have a lot of flavors. I have tried other ice cream parlors in San Diego but this one is the best one yet. Highly recommend it.
