$10.66 for 1 scoop of gelato. And the cashier asks for 18 percent tip. Are you kidding me? This is a major ripoff. Do not go whatsoever.

Two scoops in a cup $11. Coconut and pistachio. Coconut was very good. Pistachio was not good. It was tasteless. It was a quiet night. Service was good.

Gelato-go is more than just a place to get gelato. While that is what we ordered, you can also purchase other treats, sandwiches, and more. The dulce de leche gelato is our favorite! Yum!

OMG, the Gelato was the best ever. I got two flavors, vanilla, and Carmel cream. It was so smooth and creamy. I got it in a Waffle Cone. The cone was very tasty and fresh.

The Desserts are so outstanding. So many options from sweet to salty. Definitely, you must try these gelato flavors coconut, pistachio, dulce de leche, and hazelnut - you will not regret it. It’s so hard to decide on a flavor because all of them are...so delicious. The service was excellent, quick and easy to interact. The best Gelato in the USA. Highly recommend it.More

Parking near them is tight, a lot just down the street is $15, NOT paying that. If you don't mind walking a little go around the Block and pay for the spot at if I remember correctly $8 for the day. Gelato had good flavor....It was soft probably from the freezer being open so much for all of the business.More

We stopped by here after having lunch next door at Pizza Days. Being gelato addicts, whenever we see a gelato shop, we have to give it a try. This place did not disappoint. They have lots of great flavors and a terrific location right on...Ocean Drive. You are right across the street from the beach.If you are a gelato lover, we highly recommend a stop here while in the area.More

This gelato chain opened a Espanola Way franchise so recently that it doesn't even appear yet - that I could find - on their web page. This review applies to that location only. This gelato shop on Espanola Way has changed ownership 3 times in...the past 3 years. The past two owners operated a great family-operated shop with excellent quality gelato at reasonable prices. Sadly, this franchise owner appears to be getting his franchise fee back quickly by serving, what used to be $3.50 small and overflowing cup, to what now costs $6.00 and the serving barely reaches the top rim of the cup in my 6 recent visits there. This location is prime to both locals and tourists and it is missing the mark on both demographics because of its poor value. The fact that the neighborhood school children who used to stop by with their parents after school are rare to be seen is one indication of the issue. The same can be said of the resident weekend family strollers up Espanola Way. It remains to be seen if the tourists are willing to pay their price for one of the highest priced gelatos in SoBe - the season hasn't really started yet! Besides the poor value, the gelato in the trays n this shop is not visually appealing and one of the largest selling flavors of gelato in the world - salted caramel - has yet to appear in this shop. A small point - again on appearance - is the dress of the servers. I'm not sure about the other shops in this chain, but the servers are allowed to wear whatever street cloths they wish. Nearly every great gelato shop in the world garbs their servers in fresh, bright and consistent uniforms. Sorry, it seem petty but that's part of the gelator experience for this raterMore
