Their gelati, cheeses, and yogurt are outstanding. For years, I had a go-to flavor in another brand. After I tasted pistachio, vanilla, etc. from Pazzo, I found my formerly loved brand quite lacking. I'm extremely glad we have Pazzo Marco Creamery in our community. Thanks, guys! Below, I've not been to their "lab", although I'd certainly like to visit. I... More

Pazzo Marco has, absolutely, the best pistachio gelato in the universe!!! Buy it at Surf Market all year from the freezer or fresh from the cart in Summer.

It is not a restaurant, but Pazzo Marco makes both gelato and cheese, and both are tasty and distinctive. Marco and Paul will give tours with prior arrangement, and sometimes can be found selling in the Surf Market parking lot, but the easiest way to experience their creations is to look for their latest on the Surf Market shelves.

I have lived in Gualala, CA for almost a year now, and every Saturday I look forward to going to Surf Market's parking lot to see what the flavors of the week are. These guys lovingly make new flavors every week all summer long out of the freshest local ingredients. I've never had anything so fresh and yummy. So when... More

Marco's gelato is pure and fresh, made the old fashioned way. I haven't tried every flavor yet, but I'm working on it. It's worth ordering first, then deciding if you have room for lunch.

These are real craftsman - a high quality product that tastes just like the gelato I had in Italy. All this and very friendly service make it a special treat!
