The fruit Gelato was so good, sweet and tart and refreshing. They also make coffee and frappes. But it was too hot out for that, I like coffee in the morning so will have to go back. I had a homemade waffle cone that was fresh and crunchy. The price was reasonable too! Service with a smile

I loved the gelato I bought here, and the only bad part was having to decide between so many flavours available. The outside patio was also nice for relaxing with your gelato or smoothie in the midday heat.

Their Gelato is amazing and cheap! Every single time without fail I went to get some gelato here when I came into town. Every single time. If you love good authentic gelato then this is the place to go for sure!

Best in the area by far. We tried the orangsmic or something like that... Wow really good. The chocolate ice cream is a little bad. But everything else was awesome a little piece of Italy in the Mexican beach. Thank you!!

A nice place to stop for dessert or a snack. Great prices and the best selection of flavors in town.

With a huge selection of ice cream to choose from there isn't a person in the world that won't be able to find something they love! They also have a great frapacino (or frozen whatever they have to call it now) - much, much better than Starbucks in my humble opinion! You won't be disappointed!

Mahahual never stops amazing me and this place won't disappoint! Centrally located in the middle of the melecon "strip" with a wide variety of flavors makes this the perfect place to grab some ice cream (or Frappucino)! Great service, great variety, perfect location....what else can I say? Stop in and grab a cup or cone and you won't be disappointed!
