“Very delicious, very expensive”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Um... their peanut butter cup gelato is beyond phenomenal. But so is their chocolate covered strawberry flavor.

My fiance and I have a serious dedication to Gelayo Gusto on El Camino. This is a serious rival in flavor and texture.

You will enjoy every bite of gelato you eat here. But you won't enjoy the prices. They're pretty outrageous. Maybe it deserves a star for its contribution to my lack of obesity?

“Best Gelato in the bay area”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

Whenever we think of eating Ice Cream, only Gelato comes to mind. The only problem is that we have to pay in cash because of which at times we have to avoid eating here. Free tasting helps choose the best match. I love Tiramisu & dark Chocolate. One good thing is that we can also do half & half so I don't have to compromise with flavors. Had Gelato in Italy too and can easily say that it does match the authentic Gelato's flavor.

“Amazing! Worth the wait!”
Reviewed April 19, 2011

My only suggestion is that the owner let his staff help out. He was great to talk to, allowing ppl to take their time to choose, and to sample, but there was a huge line. He had a girl working with him, but he wouldn't let her help out. Other than that, totally delicious!!

Reviewed August 2, 2009

This gelatoria has been around forever and owned by the same fellow. Their gelato is great and so are the prices.
