“It IS all that!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

I was surprised to see a gelato place hold the #1 spot for restaurants in Laguna so I made sure we stopped here over the weekend. It is a little hard to find and you won't see it upon driving by since its located down a little walkway alley but you can also get to it from the alley behind the main buildings. It's a small quaint place that is bustling! The service is awesome; the employees are very attentive. We didn't even get past the first display of gelato and sorbetto before we knew what we wanted. We tried the "baci" gelato which is chocolate and hazelnut. Also had the mango sorbetto. Both were incredible and we are planning on making this place our "must have" stop every time we're in Laguna.

“The name describes the product”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

In the a.m. if you are around, you can watch them make the gelato. It is truly one of the best I've eaten.

“No better gelato !”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

We were touristing around Laguna looking for this place, as one of our family members had been here before. Locals overheard us directed us instantly. Sure shows how proud they are of Gelato Paradiso. Enjoyed our delicious treats during a lovely walk along the boardwalk and our visit to Laguna was complete... till next time!

“Best place in Laguna”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

We go to Gelato Paradiso whenever possible. Even if we are eating breakfast we hang around just so we can get gelato. Not sure why there's is so awesome but it really it. You must go there. You can get there from walking through a walkway next to Watermarc or access it from the alley that runs behind the street.

“dark deep chocolate gelato”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

exceptional dark chocolate gelato.

Most chocolate ice creams are the junkyard of other flavors. Not this.
If you want non-sugary, clean, clear chocolate...than try it here.
