After a bike ride with my wife along the Silver Strand on an unseasonably warm fall day, a cold gelato seemed like just the thing to round out the afternoon. Unlike many similar shops that have a lot of uninspired flavor choices, Nado had an enticing selection. Service was efficient & cheery and the serving size was just right.

Definitely choose here over other local ice cream shops in Coronado. It's just of the main street so I think it gets overlooked by tourists sometimes, but it's MUCH better than the other ice cream shops Coronado has to offer.

Happiness found. Out for an arvo with girlfriends; we knew we had to go soon but weren't ready for the fun, laughing, memories to be over so we stopped in here. Glad we did.

Go here. Get gelato. Return again and again. Best gelato since Italy. Just a short 10 minute walk from Hotel Del. Outside seating too.

Once again found through Trip Advisor, we wanted gelato after being on the Coronado white sands beaches and we found this place through Trip Advisor. We walked over and was astonished at all the flavor choices. They were excellent tasting and we were allowed to pull our chairs from the sunny area to the side of the shady building to... More

The flavors really come through in this gelato. For example, the pistachio tastes like fresh pistachios, not some artificially flavored ice cream. This is the place that makes the spicy Mayan chocolate gelato that Chuao made famous. Highly recommended!

You can't go wrong with this place. Just a few steps off Orange Drive. Amazing gelato, with very few places to sit. The flavors change daily.

If you like gelato, you'll love Nado Gelato. If you've never tried it, one trip will get you hooked. The flavors offered are true to their names. Berries taste like berries, lemon is just tart enough, chocolate is perfect....you get the picture. Staff is friendly and efficient. They also offer an assortment of coffee drinks, and wonderful chocolate bars.

Delicious coffee gelato and good coffee too. Worth walking 50 steps away from Orange Avenue to this tasty spot. This is the real creamy delicious gelato made in the house.

The gelato here is always fresh and the flavor selections very unique. The sea salt caramel is truly tasty.
