The staff is rude. They have no idea what customer service is. They just want the customer's money. If you want gelato just go to the grocery store and buy some frozen gelato because it will be 100 times better than what you can get at Dulce Gelato. I will not go back.

I stopped here with friends recently and was pleasantly surprised. The staff was very helpful and attentive....offering free samples before we made out choices. The building was clean and well decorated with an Italian theme...and the selection of gelatos was wonderful. Our group chose Mint Chocolate Chip, Passion Fruit, Strawberry and Dulce de Leche. Sugar cones are available as well... More

The gelato was delicious, loved all the flavors we tried. Just wish we had tried earlier in our trip so we could've gone again!

By far one of my favorite places in Hot Springs - we come for lunch or dinner at least twice a month, and of course you've gotta finish with gelato. I always get the caprese sandwich with the tomato basil soup; as a vegetarian, it's so nice to have an option other than salad, and they're both so flavorful. My... More

My husband and I both got a gelato from here and we both enjoyed it very much. The staff was helpful in letting us sample flavors first. My husband got peanut butter and he loved it and I was able to get half and half of two different flavors which was nice. I also enjoyed the fact that they have... More

Gelato was good ... Had a mix of peanut butter and chocolate, and hubby had raspberry. Don't be fooled by the size of the cups ... they pack a ton of good stuff in a little container! We both got smalls, and couldn't have eaten any more ... and we both love ice cream of any kind! It was the... More

Forget ice cream, Go for the Gelato! Dolce offers a fantastic variety of mouthwatering gelato options! I ordered half coconut & half passion berry...it was the perfect tropical twist!! The waitress was friendly & the eatery was clean & modern! What a treat!

Staff are so friendly and willing to let you "try before you buy". Advise you to go with the smaller size 'cause your eyes are always bigger than your stomach.

Dolce Gelato is a little difficult to find, but worth it. They offer many flavors and the texture is wonderful. I would love to try some of their other menu-paninis, soup etc, but can't get past the gelato. I was only half kidding when I told them I drove from Dallas just for the gelato!
