Omg, did I die and go to heaven? I came here twice and had to hold myself back from visiting every day. The gelato was out of this world and there were lots of tempting flavors to choose from. Friendly staff, too.

Really very bad tasting ice cream - extremely fatty & leaves a horrible greasy taste your tongue. There's an Eskimo (the Nicaraguan local ice cream brand) logo on the Montebianco sign inside, which appears to be the reason why this is not gelato or quality ice cream at all. If you want gelato try Super Frutto Gelato, located next to... More

I am not a gelato fanatic, so I don't have a lot to compare this to. I stopped in after another excellent pizza at Monna Lisa. They had about 10 flavors available, which I thought was limited as I usually go to ice cream places. I settled on plain chocolate for comparison reasons and really liked it. It had a... More

if you've ever had a real gelato do not go here... we were all excited since they marketed so well - it's the nicest looking gelato place on the street. so disappointed. the gelato has a chemical taste and is sickly sweet... also very overpriced for what it is. if you just want a cold sweet desert this might do...

Not great Ice Cream/Gelato…taste and texture wise on a par with what you get in bulk in the supermarket. Decent assortment of flavors. Really expensive…1.75 for a small cup (as in really small) suitable for a little kid. Larger size is 2.50 and that is a silly price for this kind of ice cream. On the other hand..it is cold... More

We loved the gelato here...lots of great flavours, including a few make with water (no milk). $1.75 for a cone or cup, so price not bad. There is a nice courtyard to sit inside to enjoy your ice cream. We would look forward to our afternoon gelato treat.

Rich creamy ice cream a small but tightly packed cup for $1.75 can't beat that. Great staff and nice gardens and pleasant setting

This place was great after a meal on "tourist lane." They had a variety of flavors but only one or two that were "local" (the rest being normal flavors.) The only unique flavor was dulce de leche. It was so hot outside that my ice cream instantly melted...get it in a bowl!
