“Quite possibly the best gelato in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2011

This is probably the first place I've ever had gelato some 20 years ago, and I've yet to find any quite like it anywhere. There are only a handful of flavors, but what they lack in variety they more than make up for in quality. An absolute must anytime I'm in San Diego.

I hear the coffee is great too, but I've never tried it. There are also other desserts, but I just go for the gelato... again and again.

“Sweet treat after dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2010

We stopped here for a little gelato after dinner at Bluw Water Seafood down the street. They have a large variety of gelatos at $0.63/oz in biodegradable cups. A 2-scoop medium ran about $4. The pistacio was good if you like pistacio, with whole nuts in it. But the tiramisu flavor was better.
