This is a wonderful place to visit and top off your meal with a little ice cream. Many fresh flavors made right on the premises. If you have children you can also have them enjoy a carousel ride while you enjoy your ice cream. Easy parking and take the time to walk around the ice cream parlor and see the many photographs and writups about the history of and various ice cream parlors of yesteryear. What a great place to visit for a little treat.

if your going to be in the Simpson Bay area, you "Must Stop" at this location for some delicious Gelato! When it comes to something cold, this is definitely the place to be! From the outside, your looking at a nice piece of architecture compared to the surrounding area. Right away, I knew I was walking into a place that was well maintained and that my friends goes a long way with me! How could you go wrong, first impressions, that's all I have to say. Walk into the establishment, step up to the Gelato display and ask for a taste of any of the flavors. For the cost, you should try at least 10 different flavors and then when you find the one you like, ask for another taste of it to make sure. The carousel is in the back, so if you intend to ride it (its not free), make sure at check out with your Gelato, you buy a ticket! around the establishment, you will find pictures of people from around the world with Gelato in their hands! pretty cool set of pictures! You will love every part of this stop! I know my family did.

Carousel is in the heart of the shops of Simpson Bay. It has a lot of different flavors of gelato. It also has plenty of room to sit and enjoy your ice cream. They will let you sample 2 flavors. One scoop is $3.50 and 2 scoops will run you $6. You can have it served in a waffle cone or a cup. It's the same either way. It's a great way to end a meal.

Best ice cream on the island hands down. Plus there's a carousel attached for kids to enjoy. Also a bar and other sweet goodies if you're not an ice cream head.

Best texture and consistency of gelato I've ever had and I've travelled up and down Italy. Wide range of flavors, delightful atmosphere, reasonable prices and good service (ask Bert to serve you). I'm partial due to my major sweet tooth but this is my favorite establishment in the island.
