While not the best gelato, it is acceptable on a hot Santa Fe afternoon. They have about twenty flavors, as well as variety of coffee drinks.

The gelato place is next door to Izmi sushi. We saw several restaurant staff come back with cups of gelato, so we decided to have dessert there. There are not very many tables, but there was a small number of customers, so we had no difficulty finding seats. We were able to taste any of the gelatos available and I... More

I've tried to get coffee or a light snack here on many visits to Santa Fe. My experiences have been terrible…from slow and sultry service to no service. It appears to be a favorite place for locals. In fact I've observed that the locals get immediate service and a lot of conversation from the staff. There are premade sandwiches and... More

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.
