“Delicious Gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Found this wonderful place online - and I'm so glad we did! Four of us, who have eaten great quantities of gelato in Italy and elsewhere, were ecstatic to find IL Gelato! We had a wonderful experience, with Maestro Gelatiere/Owner Dirk, giving us a tour of his facility. We felt his passion for making gelato - and our favourite flavours were hazelnut, vanilla bean and mango sorbetto. The Gelato cart at the wholesale facility is open M-W-F. You won't be disappointed!

“Not good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Ok, our friends wanted to get us some gelato as a treat for visiting them at the house for dinner. We got a chocolate which was not very nice, found it to weak in flavour and did not satisfy my cravings. I have been to Italy with my girlfriends and ate gelato twice a day. So probably the best there is but not very good.

“Best Gelato & Sorbetto - The Real Deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

If you've ever had gelato in Italy, you'll recognize the authenticity of the gelato & sorbetto at IL Gelato Hawaii. Cream goodness without the dairy levels of American ice cream. Made by the friendliest people. They are primarily a wholesaler but they're looking to open retail soon. You can get quarts from their facility M-F and scoops on MWF. Way worth checking out.
