What a treat to find on a hot summer day. I asked if they could make an old fashioned strawberry soda which was not on their very creative menu. Without hesitation I was soon served a delicious soda like we used to make when I was a kid many years ago. Great service with a smile. Thanks!

We actually went here 2 times during our stay and both times it was very busy. I never had gelato before and thought it was very good. The second night we tried the sorbet which I thought was even better than the gelato.

After a visit to waterfront and its fountains nothing looked more inviting than gelato. Place was quite small, with few places to sit or stand (eating gelato outside in 97 degree heat is messy work). Service is quick despite a line. Gelato was good (but not Roman quality) and there were a dozen or so flavours, but they use their... More

This place is a must if my family and I ever return to Charleston. They had a wide variety of flavors that I'm sure were all delicious. They had selections for fruit lovers, chocolate lovers, vanilla lovers, and every one in between. I got the salted caramel gelato and it was amazing. The flavor was strong and very nice. I... More

If visiting in the summer, be ready for a mess...melts fast and the extreme heat (100 degrees) does no help. We had Chocolate Extreme, Vanilla, and the Salted Caramel. They offer gelato dipped in chocolate, a Belgian variety of cone, and sandwiches. We only ate gelato. Pricey at almost $6.00 a cone. I would suggest the small as the large... More

Wonderful gelato! Tasted great! Small place, maybe add more seating so don't have to walk around king street while eating when is really hot because gelato melts!

Fast service and a good selection make this an easy decision when visiting the waterfront. We have never been disappointed with anything we got from here. Easily the most reliable, quick cheap dessert in downtown. If you can't find street parking, park behind SNOB.

Around 4.50 for a scoop - great flavors. The kids loved it! Chocolate hazlenut and chocolate and peanut butter were the favorites. The strawberry sorbet was fantastic as well. Lovely view of waterfront park.

Hands down the best Gelato I have ever had! You MUST visit the King Street location when in Charleston, it's a super cute location. I ordered the Affogato which is a scoop of gelato (I chose hazelnut) with a shot of espresso poured over the top and whip cream. SO GOOD!! I thought the espresso might completely melt the gelato...

Conveniently located by Waterfront Park. Grandchildren enjoyed after dinner. No place to eat inside, tends to melt quickly.
