“Find the cake too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

When you first enter the circular counter, all you see is great gelato offerings. They are very good. Make sure you go around the other side of the circular display to the see cake offerings. They are very good too. There is not a real problem in parking here either. Most of the time there is parking available right in front of the door. Eat your desert here instead of spending a fortune at the fancy restaurant that you just left.

“The place for authentic gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

They fly their gelato in from Italy - - lots of flavors to pick from. They'll give you a sample to try, of course.

Well worth the stop for a sweet treat

“Very good to go, lots of choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

This,mainly, ice cream place has. A wide variety of ice creams. For two scoops ($6) you can get two different types of ice cream if you wish. Very creamy taste. Can get a little loud as it is an enclosed building. Nota complaint, just FYI. Closes at 10. Has a neat little carousel out back.

“Best ice cream on island ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

You must visit for an outstanding experience to end your day after dinner. So many wonderful flavors to choose from you have to try new flavors every visit. Great for whole family n kids of all ages. The carousel is a beautiful touch along with nostalgic photos posted all around the outside of this round shaped building.

“After meal stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014 via mobile

We wanted ice cream after our meal and the Carousel was recommended. It is the place to go if you like a wide variety of ice cream (Gelato) or other frozen treats to pick from. Such a nice place to stop at and enjoy with a beautiful carousel in back.
