“A scoop of Rome in Isla Mujeres”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

After eating gelato all over Rome two summers ago, I think that my palate became more refine. So, with that in mind , my opinion is that this is authentic Gelato. Oh, the choices! I went for the mango and coconut and they were delicious. The hazelnut is just like in Rome, perfect. Some gelatoes back in the US are overly sweet, but these are not. Just great gelato.

“it's gelato”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

yes, it's gelato, but it's not top-notch. we had the chocolate and oreo flavors. they were just okay. the people were friendly, the building was nice, the price was reasonable. i just wasn't wild about how our two flavors tasted.

I'm sorry for your words, we put all the love to make ice cream and we use only first-class products, natural and fresh fruit (no powder), milk and cream, and we have confirmed every day by our customers this ice cream like it. We are waiting you the next time to try other flavors. Sorry for my english, but I'm italian.

We stopped here more than once on our trip to Isla :) DD & DH were hooked after the first time there. All the flavors we had were great (too many to remember). Enjoy!

We ate gelato at the ParadICE locaation near the town square. I had tiramisu flavor and my husband had strawberry. Both were delicious. We went back another night but it was closed. : (
