Easy to access right off Orange Avenue. Friendly staff willing to put up with multiple "Can I try a sample of..." Good portion sizes. Has the tiramisu and chocolate flavors. Yummy!

A must stop if you are out and about in Coronado. Gelato was absolutely delicious and the shop was adorable. A great way to stop and take a break from shopping.

Find this gelato shop, buy a cup or cone, and you'll swear you died and went to heaven. I don't even eat ice cream normally but after buying the grandchildren gelato and sampling theirs, I was hooked. OMG, it's delicious!

Wonderful treat any time off the year. This neighborhood shop is a local gem. Put it on the list of stops in Coranado. Wishing distance from all the down town places.

This place has the best gelato. Great flavors, smooth, creamy consistency, and good service are found here! There are many flavors to choose from. All of them are delicious. The employees patiently allow you to try many before deciding on a flavor. We went three times during our visit to Coronado. Try the speciale. It was absolutely delicious!

Walked in here because my wife was in need of a coffee fix. Walked out with some awesome gelato. Some of the best I have tried with too many good flavors to try. Friendly service as well.

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.

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.
