I love gelato for its rich flavor and smooth consistency. However one needs to understand that the term "gelato" in Italian means "ice cream". Many establishments sell ice cream and command a higher price by calling it "gelato" even though it lacks the special qualities that make Italian gelato one of the best ice cream. Unfortunately, Belgium Gelato is one... More

After a nice evening walk, I stopped in for a quick dessert - Peppermint chocolate is my new favorite! This little shop is clean and the wait staff is friendly. Will stop by again!

We swung in here for dessert after lunch nearby. If you like chocolate this is the place to be. They only had something like 10-12 flavor options but 8-10 of them were chocolate! I had chocolate peanut butter and it was very good. Not truly Italian gelato but very good. My husband tried both the strawberry and the vanilla and... More

There are a lot places that have gelato in their names but when you taste them....it isn't gelato. Gelato is very smooth and creamy and this place did it right! Yummy!

Not quite European standard, but very close. The staff was very friendly (we went two nights in a row) and their flavor combinations were delicious. I stuck with the dark chocolate orange, which was amazing, while my companion tried the salted caramel and the orange peanut butter. Portions vs. prices were decent, and the single scoop serving is very generous.... More

Waffles? Coffee? Gelato? You can't go wrong with that combination. Great flavors and a super smooth gelato.

Nothing hits the spot on a southern summer day like some ice cream and this place was just what we needed. Great location right next to Waterfront Park, excellent gelato and super friendly staff. OK it's not Europe-quality but it was as good as you will get in Charleston and I will definitely be back.

We were visiting Charleston and some friends were raving about this place. I unfortunately was not impressed. I lived overseas for many years, and maybe I'm accustomed to the Italian gelato as a preference. I was really disappointed with the very few choices of flavors and none of them being what I wanted. They had chocolate orange which I found... More
