We were tired and weary after a day on the slopes, we just popped in and this place hit the stop. What wonderful owners, very helpfully, accommodating and charming. The food, ice creams and coffee were wonderful. A special mention should be made for Italian expresso that was transported me from Colorado straight to Rome. Everything was great, immaculately clean, tasty food with an atmosphere that made we want to stay forever.

My husband, son and I visited Ciao Gelato while in Steamboat last week; we all ordered gelato. Although we liked it a lot, we felt like it was a little pricey for what you get. The portion size for the large ($4.25) cup is not very large at all. They will allow you to choose more than one flavor combination for your cup. The consistency was creamy and tasted more like ice cream than gelato, in our opinions. Ciao Gelato was a nice little place to visit while on vacation, but perhaps a little overpriced and over-rated.

There is no better place in Steamboat for dessert. Ciao Gelato is our family's favorite place to have a treat and hang out for a while. The owners are so nice and after a couple visits treat you like family. This is a "must do" for any Steamboat visit!

We stopped by late one evening. The gelato was actually still very well stocked. They have a lot of really good flavors. Didn't try their paninis but they smelled good.

This was my first trip to Steamboat Springs and the folks at Howelson Ice Arena suggested Ciao Gelato so I took my daughter there for some Gelato, she wanted Vanilla but the owner came out and informed us they were out and they wouldn't have any in for a week or so, so my daughter chose the pumpkin pie and "loved it" had such a great flavor. We stopped in again a few days later with a group of our friends and enjoyed more Gelato and had hot chocolate "which was AMAZING" and Pizza ( they have such a wide variety of pizza made it hard to choose) we ordered a variety and they were all so so good. This is such a nice little family owned restaraunt. Everyone is so friendly there. Defiantly will go back.
