Very interesting Gelato! We had dinner down the street, and went here after. Love the ability to get a few different things, instead of having to commit to just one.

We were in the area this past week for vacation, we almost went here everyday on our trip, that's how good the gelato is here. Don't pass it up!!!

The friendly welcome and efficient service had a genuine warmth - none of the robotic 'have-a-nice-day' culture. Too many flavours of ice cream to name; no over-the-top exotic designs just good quality locally produced ice-cream from about $4 per small cup. Sit in the cool...More

The employees are wonderful - so friendly and welcoming. You can taste flavors before purchasing and the gelato is to die for - excellent. Very clean place and the amount of gelato for the price is quite good.

We really love this place. The gelato is very good and the staff very nice. We find the portion sizes to be very fair for the price. It is a great place to stop in on after a great dinner nearby.

Slipped in here right before the closing bell with a sweet tooth that needed to be cured and cured it was! Had two flavors packed into my single scoop and was well on my way to some very Sweet Hermosa Dreams.

It's not the best or the worst, it's gelato. But this shop doesn't have an impressive variety of flavors, just the basics. So if you're good with German Chocolate it's fine. Didn't see anything with peanut butter. Ya, if you are in the area and...More
