Hands down the best gelato (standard and dairy free) that I’ve ever had. Amazing!!! I will say, the staff wasn’t overly friendly and they definitely didn’t look like they were happy to be there but … the gelato itself was to die for

I am an ice cream fanatic and I love this place! Wonderful owners and service. So many options for ice cream desserts. Ice cream noodle sundae, ice cream panini, and of course the classic brownie sundae and shakes. Great Italian sodas. This this a MUST!!

White Macadamia Nut cookie gelato. I think this is in my top 10 of all time most delicious treats (and I'm pretty old!) It was so good. So very, very good. Don't miss this place!

Even with all the hype, this place is still very cheap and super generous with their portions. That alone justifies going there. $6.50 here was enough to feed 3 people. Other ice cream shops can only give you a medium sized serving for $6. This...was definitely jumbo. Even when the cup was full they just kept scooping. Plus the lady helping us was very nice and friendly to talk to.More

Gelato is a serious addiction for me. Sea Star really shines! There is a great variety of flavors and cones. Always nice to have gelato in a homemade waffle cone. There is a flavor for everyone. I love a scoop of Tillamook strawberry and one...orange cremsicle. It’s fruit salad in a cone.More

Delicious homemade gelato! A lot of cone options and dairy-free flavor options too! I had the toffee flavor and it was amazing! So much softer, richer and creamier than ice cream! A must every time we're in Seaside!

I had the pistachio gelato and it was pretty good. Reminded me a lot of the taste and texture of peanut butter.

Stumbled onto this while taking an after dinner stroll. My travel partner was all "Whoa" with the options and the fact IT WAS GELATO!!!! not soft serve, not baskin robbins not "basic" I liked the non dairy options... He liked the death by choclate!!! some...of the options were not basic at all!!!!!!! but they had some of the simpler ones for the uber pickyMore

This gelato shop is well worth your visit. They have at least 30 different flavors, and although it may not be as good as the gelato in Italy, it's a close 2nd. We go there every time we're in Seaside.

If you are going to Seaside you have to stop here. Absolutely amazing gelato. We stopped by on Halloween and got some spooky scoops of ice cream. Everyone was very nice and helpful. 10/10

Once we took our four small grandchildren here, they literally asked for this gelato every day! Blue Moon, Bubblegum, Elk Tracs and the Coconut Lime were family favorites of ours. We enjoyed eating the ice cream inside. Ambiance is beachy and colorful which appeals to...small children. :)More

We wanted to try the gelato. It was a nice treat, not very many flavors to choose from. But maybe this is normal with gelato. The girl behind the counter near the entrance making waffle cones did not have her hair covered adequately. Kind of...surprising to me. Service was fairly quick. Nice stop for a treat.More
