I had the coffee and dulce in a fresh cone and it was so delicious. Very creamy and not overwhelming rich so I could have easily eaten another cone. Sad that I had to leave! We visited on a Sunday afternoon and had to wait...More

I love gelato because it has a deeper flavor than ice cream. Gelato Paradiso is one of the few places that allows you to put four flavors in a medium-sized cup. (Most allow only two.) However, I still went with two: chocolate and pistachio. This...More

Waited in line for 20 minutes, my daughter said this is the best gelato in California. After ordering teh strawberry cheesecake / tiramisu combination, she was right. The wait goes by quick and the service is fast and polite. Worth the wait and cost.

Doesn't matter where you had diner, ditch the dessert menu and head over. Any time spent waiting in line is completely worth it. Be sure to sample liberally before landing on your choice...each silky smooth frozen concoction is better than the next.

Good gelato, lots of flavors, only negative is the size of the portions. Are way way to big. Lovely to have your cone made in front of you although a bit thinner will be a better choice. However, hands down great gelato and sorbet.

Really charming gelato place in laguna beach on pepper tree lane, they bake their waffle cones in the store so it always smells heavenly. Very close to the ocean. Grab a gelato and sit at the beach and enjoy the beautiful sunset
