This cozy place offers much more than just ice cream. However, we only tried the gelato: one of us had dark chocolate and the other had coffee flavored. We both agreed that the gelato was indeed very good. The dark chocolate in my opinion was a bit too sweet.

Walked there from our hotel and was worth the walk! Delicious food in beautiful Gaslamp district. It's small but so worth any wait you may have. Enjoy!!

Quite possibly the best dark chocolate gelato we've ever had. Small negative, only one flavor allowed in the small serving.

Wish I'd been hungrier because their menu is much more extensive than just chocolate and gelato! As it was, the gelato was fantastic! Great place to pop in for a meal or snack. My husband and I approve.

Crepes, gelato and sorbets were out of this world! Had a banana, walnut, caramel crepe which was excellent but a little too much caramel (sugar overload!) The selection and display are overwhelming. It is hard to choose what to get so I suggest you go there often and try as much as you can!

Don't miss it! This started as my local coffee shop in the morning on my walk to the convention center each day but it became my favorite. Great coffee, better tea, phenomenal gelato and other desserts and don't miss the bruschette or their Pears & Gruyere salad...Awesome!!!

This is one of not too many gelateria around. The ice cream is beautifully displayed in the wave style like gelato is displayed in Italy. The many choices are mostly creamy and chocolatey ones. More fruit based ones would be an improvement. The temperature at which the gelato is kept is correct. It should not be overly chilled. Good for... More

Try one of everything. Go after dinner for a gelato and espresso. Or maybe after lunch for the chocolate mousse. Or maybe for brunch for the brunch crepes. No matter what time day or night the food is fabulous!

I go here for the Crepes’. But they have some other real nice desserts. A little pricey, but you get a good large Crepe’ and it tastes pretty good.
