Really yummy gelato and friendly service! Lemon, and lemon cookie were both scrumptious. Patronize this family owned business for gelato and for lunch.

Their pizza is fantastic! The crust just makes it! My favorite is the spinach ricotta. And the gelato is AMAZING!!! The coconut is my go to but they have cheesecake, pomegranate, lemon, forest berry...too many to list. Reasonably priced to boot!

This little spot serves rich, delicious gelato, perfect for a hot, sunny Steamboat afternoon. The help is always ready to let you sample, and though the selection is not vast, you will find some tasty surprises.

The Gelato is really delicious - I recommend a fruit flavor vs chocolate chip or vanilla. The pomegranate, strawberry, and mountain berry were delicious.

They have 2 sizes of fantastic gelato, 1 scoop for $3.60, 2 scoops for $4.60. There are 18 choices of flavors. They also serve coffee, tea, pizza, Stromboli, and caprese. Very friendly wait staff. Order at the counter. We'll be back next year.

After an active day of hiking up to the lodge and riding the gondola back down, then bowling three games, we went into town for dinner. We decided to treat ourselves to ice cream (feeling we earned it!), and found Ciao Gelato just before closing. We enjoyed our delicious dessert as we walked around town. This was the perfect treat!

Homemade pizza, gelato and more! Straight from Italy!! Family owned & operated. It doesn't get any fresher than this. If you were to travel to Italy, this is what you would get. They also have salads, paninis, coffee drinks etc. The gelato is incredible-make sure to save some room for dessert!!

The gelati was amazing. It was just like what we had in Italy. The variety was great and the flavor was fantastic. The staff was friendly and very helpful.
