CREAMY!

Tried a orange chocolate and pistaccio gelato. Wow! So tasty and creamy. I have tried gelato in many countries and this definitely ranked with the best. I'll be back.

We had desert here three times on our business trip to San Diego. The crepes were tasty and the Gelato tastier. We did not try the beautiful display of chocolates.This place is small but heaven for someone with a sweet tooth. A definite stop in the gaslight district. By the way, the staff was very friendly.

Nice election of gelato-'fresh fruit flavor were definitely fresh. A small was plenty. The gelato down about a half mile in the Italian bakery was better though. The staff was okay, they could have been more pleasant.

We went just for dessert and it did not disappoint! Crepes were delicious! I had nutella and marscapone and my daughter had berries with gelato. They were both yum!

Had dessert here and I really enjoyed my gelato. They have many chocolate choices and I really liked the chocolate and orange flavor. They give free samples of all their selections. I was in the mood for a fruit gelato so, I chose the peach. It was very good - lots of fruit. If I go back I will try... More

Oh my gosh what a place. Delicious food and great service. I went for the chocolate ravioli dish and I ate every bite. The ravioli was so savory and the sauce was perfect. My husband who is a chef had the veil ravioli and said it was amazing. We splurged and had the berry gelato and it was so flavorful.... More

Can't recommend enough. Absolutely fantastic, made fresh every day. Heavenly texture, many flavors to choose from (and all I've tried so far are delicious).
