Superb gelato! All flavors are good, the Coppa Mista is GREAT! If you have never been to San Anselmo, go for a warm summer evening, have dinner at one of the small excellent restaurants, and finish your visit here. It'll be a night to remember for the casual relaxed time.

This gelato place is one of the most old stores in the charm town of San Anselmo. This already said a lot that the ice cream is really good! The owner is proud to serve 3 generations. Lots of costumers bring their child or grandchild to the same place that they were treated in their own childhood. Originals natural flavors,... More

Cute little spot that has been here for many years. Kids still love to go there. Great flavors but isn't chocolate always the best?

Love the all the gelatos, but my favorite is coppa mista (blend of chocolate, vanilla bean and pistachio).....so rich, smooth and creamy. Great tasting, except it's quite pricey for a pint. If you love the thick, chewy richness, you won't mind paying extra.

I'm not sure I can prove this empirically, but I believe San Anselmo Gelato has served at least one scoop to every man, woman, and child in Ross Valley. Why? It's good stuff and they are very nice people. Excellent spot for a treat after dinner to enjoy while strolling along the avenue.

Most recently, we arrived one night just as the owner was locking to door. He unlocked it and scooped our cones. As always, the gelato was great. Try the ginger - it has chunks of real ginger in it.

We often have dinner at a local restaurant on San Anselmo Avenue and stop in for sweet treat after. Excellent gelato with classic flavors.

They have a great selection of Gelato flavors from traditional to nutty and chunky. I love everything about this place. If you like high-fat ice cream in the traditional Italian style, this is the place. The owner has been in town for over 10 years; he is wonderful.
