“Delicious!”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

I especially loved the local flavors like passionfruit. And they gave generous portions, which was a nice surprise compared to many gelaterias.

“Skip dessert at the Restaurant and go here.”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Best I had comparable to Italy! Prices cheap, have the cone or cup - usually 8-10 flavors to choose from - melon,cafe, tiramisu, vanilla, chocolate, you get the picture. It was a awesome little stop - usually only open until 8 p.m.

“Best gelato outside of Italy”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

This was a return visit to have this wonderful treat. Many flavors to chose from made fresh daily. I particularily like the coffee.

“Nice enough but not creamy enough”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

It was a cute little place with a cheery lady working the counter (assume the owner based on comments she made). The flavors were enough to be a reasonable selection for most any palate (the cherry is great!)...the issue came in that some of my gelato had ice crystals in it similar to something that had been thawed and frozen so that is what yielded the average rating.
A heads up is check to see what time they close as they close much earlier than one would expect...

“Fantastic ice cream!”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

They came fro Trieste to Boquete. Their ice cream is delicious. Nothing more to say. We have had ice creams in several restaurants, and they are not good, full of icicles... But at this Gelataria, it was the greatest ice cream we've had in a long time.
