Pretty good gelato. Nothing super impressive, but I would go again. The bathrooms could definitely have done with a good cleaning though!

While my husband and son were fishing one evening, my daughter and I walked to this establishment. The ice cream was good, but a little soft for gelato type ice cream. Of course my opinion may be influenced by many work trips to Italy.

To start, there are 2 locations so maybe one location is better than the other. We went to the one by Gabriella's. The gelato was okay. My husband got strawberry and while we appreciate the use of real strawberries, the overall gelato lacked flavor. I got the strawberries and cream flavor and it was lacking in flavor also. They do...

Good Italian ice cream. Refreshing when it 85 degrees and 80% humidity at 8:00 pm. Service is average considering it is just an ice cream shop.

We frequented this gelato place each night on our vacation. We have enjoyed all the flavored we have tried. Each time we go in there is something new to pick from-you have to try it!!

We went around 2:00 p.m & they were already out of many basic flavors like chocolate. The employee was not friendly; definitely didn't seem to like his job. The gelato wasn't anything great. Honestly, the kids & I would've been happier with treats from Dairy Queen & it would've been cheaper.

This locally owned ice cream shop has two location on South Padre Island. I believe both are adjacent to one of those large souvenir shops along the main drag. My husband, son and I tried them out this summer while on the island for vacation. We each got a 2 flavor medium sized bowl of the gelato. I like this... More

We had a treat after eating at Louie's and riding Go-carts at Gravity Park. They have a great selection of ice cream and the service was fantastic. In fact, my daughter's first choice of ice cream was not in stock, but half way through our ice cream, the gentleman working behind the counter went into their freezer and found some... More
