Excellent gelato in many flavor choices. We had coffee flavored, a nut combo that had pistachios and pine nuts and another special flavor. All very good. Also decent coffee selections. The clerk was very friendly and let us sample several flavors before we decided.

Pretty good ice cream. Get the sour cherry. Way good. You can also ask for samples. It's not really expensive l.

Even though it's cold outside, can't resist quality gelato. Overall quality is excellent. How do I describe? Smooth, creamy, explosive flavor, not too sweet.

The Gelato is fantastic. Not cheap but the taste can't be beat and the portion sizes are decent. Taste samples are provide by a friendly and patient staff. . We will return again on our next visit to Coronado

Excellent gelato - intense flavors so ask for a taste first - but when you find that perfect flavor the quality is fresh and AMAZING

We have eaten gelato at several places but this is excellent gelato! The restaurant is clean and the gelato flavors displayed are very creatively swirled and look so fresh. Our favorite was the Opera, which was a hazelnut flavor, but had a bit more of a "zing" taste.

We happened upon this little gem after taking the ferry over from San Diego. We were blown away by the quality of the gelato - and 3/4 of us had it dairy-free. The pineapple and chocolate sorbetto combination was equal to the best we've had (and that place was in Rome!). Wow, we wish we lived closer!

After reading the reviews of Nado Gelato on Trip Advisor, we had to try it. It has been voted the best dessert in Coronado & we can see why! Made daily with fresh ingredients, the flavors change frequently. My husband & I tried the coffee, amaretto, pistachio & The Speciale - creme brûlée with chunks of chocolate (my favorite). We...
