“OMG - don't miss it. True Italian excellence.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

This is artisan gelato made by an Italian man who comes from a long line of gelato makers. This is award winning gelato - a true surprise on Ocean Drive. Creamy, great flavor -- so delicious. The owner had a nice chat with us about his father and grandfather who also made gelato back in Italy. You can tell that this guy knows what he's doing. He wakes up every morning at 3 or 4am and makes every flavor fresh for that day. He says that his own personal favorite is the coconut - which I tried and it is fabulous. I also had the nutella and hazelnut which were also superb. I lived in Italy for a few years and I have to say this is better than almost any gelato I had in Italy. Don't leave Miami without trying the gelato here!! This is a place to buy your gelato and walk - it doesn't have a nice space to sit and savor (flourescent lights, etc).

“Just Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Limited flavors and pricey, was expecting so much better with all the good reviews. Doesn't have a good atmosphere either. Would recommend Haagen-Dazs store over this.

Just gelato. Limited flavors, but all were well made, authentic. Strawberry and Pistacio were especially good. Friendly atmosphere. Walk to the beach.

“Wow, amazing find, you would not find better in Italy!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

This is a fantastic ice cream place in Miami that serves real Italian gelato. Antonio Arminio makes his own ice creams on the spot using the best possible ingredients, such as pistachios that he imports from Naples (he has a license from the Naples government to import these pistachios that only 100 people have). Antonio is a true "maestro gelatiere" coming from a family of ice cream makers - his grand father started the tradition!!! Antonio finished #3 at a recent "Gelato Copa del Mondo". These ice creams are all about his passion to make a fantastic product and share it with customers. We had the coconut, nutella, hazelnut and pistachio ice creams which were so good, so creamy and rich. Not to be missed
