There are better places. This is a tourist trap that is overpriced. Ice cream was served half melted. Place was dirty w bad service. Go to North End for gelato.

While in Quincy Square we stopped at Ghiradelli for a cool ice cream treat. My wife and I split a Treasure Island Sundae which was delicious. Lots of other ice cream treats as well as chocolates. Nice staff and quick service.

Always liked this chocolate ever since I visited the original site in San Francisco. Never disappoints. Dropped in today to get a break from the humid conditions and have another delicious sundae. It was worth every calorie. Chocolate is always delicious without being overly sweet....More
