My husband and I enjoyed a Samoan flavored gelato - tasted just like a Samoa Girl Scout cookie. They also serve beer and wine and other desserts. We will need to go back to sample other fare.

They have at least a dozen varieties of gelato, all delicious. I sampled several. The gelato is made there on site. It's a little too icy, needs a bit more cream, not as good as in Italy but still good. A small cup/cone is $3.95...but it a very large serving. They have medium and large sizes too. They also have some Italian pastries, coffee, and wine. You can sit inside at small table or outside. Very friendly server. It's adjacent to Fireside Pizza on 11th St in downtown Palm Harbor, just off Nebraska. I especially liked the salted caramel and the strawberry/pineapple flavors.More

Great place to have a nice dinner. Fish is always fresh and good, like everything they serve is good.

Their ice cream is so good and it’s nestled right next to a great pizza joint that it makes it the perfect ending to a great night out with family. Downtown Palm Harbor is awesome

Rich and creamy. Abundance of delicious flavors. Coffee is good also. A perfect ending after a hot Florida day.

My wife, granddaughter and I had just finished another great wood fired pizza at Fireside Pizza next door to Coolside Gelato Bar (have your tried their cauliflower pizza?) and decided we weren't quite stuffed enough and stopped in for a gelato. I'm glad we did!...I'm not really sure what a gelato is, but I do know this, ours were light, tasty and refreshing. I had the mint-chocolate chip and the girls had the rocky road. They were all delicious. This is a nice place to hang out. It has a great neighborhood vibe with nice people who are just relaxing with friends and grabbing a bite to eat. The whole downtown area is kind of fun and very informal, with people driving up with their dogs and families in the family golf cart. But, by all means, try this place out. You can't miss. It's delicious.More

Fantastic gelato, great prices! They had a good selection to choose from and it was quite tasty! You can also buy a "flight" if you want to sample different kinds with beer (I didnt try this but others were raving about it). If you eat...at the pizza restaurant beside them first and bring your bill, you can get 10% off your gelato order :)!More

Delicious Gelato and cannoli’s! The serving sizes are good. We got smalls and that was just enough. Bubble gum flavor reminded me of childhood.

Great place to cool down with an adult float. My daughter had the Guinness and chocolate gelato float. I had the rum crunch and sea salt caramel gelato. What a way to end the afternoon!

Besides the location, which is just a great time, the gelato is simply the best! May I recommend the rum crunch? I have enjoyed gelato in several countries- including Italy- and this was seriously the yummiest flavor and consistency I’ve ever tasted! Salute!
