Had two four year olds..they had the small vanilla gelatos for about 3 bucks which were good and perfect size for kids. Nice patio tables outside to people watch. Was referred by the Pedicab driver...

Ecco Gelato was our first exposure to Gelato and we absolutely love it! Ecco has a variety of flavors to choose from. We went there twice during our stay in Santa Fe and found every flavor delightful and the prices were reasonable for gelato. We will go again.

Rude service and tasteless gelato. This place is very popular with people who hang out and read their newspapers or computers, but the food is awful. It's in a high traffic, tourist location and is always busy. Unfortunately it isn't any good!

Located just a few blocks from the Plaza, Ecco really hit the spot...very tasty gelato (I went with Cinnamon!), as well as soups and sandwiches...a nice break!

Love going here for dessert after dinner out...or anytime. Great flavors of gelato including some offbeat ones like strawberry habanero, which I love.

I've gone to Ecco several times for since they have been in business, as I really love good gelato. However I have never found it here. Their gelato is mediocre at best. In case they don't know it gelato is not supposed to be laced with ice crystals. Sorry Ecco, I have tried several times and am not inspired.

We were disappointed in this little coffee shop/gelato store. The gelato was tasty (though not robust in flavors) but didn't have the proper texture.

We wanted a take-out sandwich. This place was recommended, so we bought a sandwich. It was premade, so not a freshly made sandwich. We do not like food with hot peppers, not a good thing in NM, so we asked if the tuna salad sandwich had hot peppers in it. The lady said it was not hot. But it was... More

This shop was just outside my hotel. The barista was very friendly and quick. My mocha was delicious. Great outdoor seating. The pastries looked awesome but the barista recommended a few breakfast places. His suggestions were awesome.

I had the lavender gelato and wish I had more. I had hoped to try more flavors but my time ran out. Very friendly scoopers.
