“A review that matters...”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

As having spent many summers in Italy, I can definitely say I have tasted a fair share of "real' Italian gelato. I have to laugh at the negative comments that complain about having "few" flavors. This place has some of the best gelato found on this side of the Atlantic. The ingredients are of the highest quality and come through in the unique flavors offered. I actually respect a place that has fewer "gusti" so that I know they are fresh and move quicker. Aside from the staples of pistachio, nutella and nocciola, this place also has some "specials" on a rotating basis. If you're ever there for the cannoli, please try it...It really does taste like a Sicilian cannoli--citron bits and all! If you're looking for an "ice-cream" go do yourself a favor and buy something out of a deli freezer for 2 bucks. If you want a seriously creamy indulgence, then try one from here.

“Best gelato I have ever eaten, no joke!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Home made Italian gelato. This place has absolutely amazing gelato, you will not be disappointed!! We went there multiple times in our few days in Miami because we enjoyed it so much. The highlights were the pistachio, the strawberry and the coconut, as well as the smoothies. There is not a huge selection, but the quality more than compensates for this. 5 stars!

“Finally the real Italian gelato in USA”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Guys finally the real Italian gelato in USA!!!
As Italian and above all as gelato crazy eater fan I have finally found my favorite gelato in US.
Working and traveling around States I like to try Italian gelato and a lot of time I'm impressed in the negative way. The flavor and the taste are unfortunately and often far away from a real Italian gelato. Here in SoBe Miami let's try nocciola and pistachio, close your eyes and you can feel in the costiera Amalfitana.
Likely I live in Miami and when I want to feel home I can eat this great gelato every time.
Well done guys.

“I honestly don't understand how this is #9”
Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

We had seen this place before we even left for out trip to South Beach. I read reviews before we went. It seemed to have mixed reviews. After trying it out, I would say that the gelato wasn't anything to get excited about. I expected it to be cold inside like an ice cream palor usually is. It was actually quite hot inside. Which may explain why the gelato was so warm. I got the Nutella gelato. The flavor was ok but I certainly didn't feel like I was eating gelato. It was more like thick, room temperature Nutella brownie batter...even thicker though...fudge-like. If I wanted gelato again, I would absolutely go somewhere else.

Thanks for your review. Our Nutella Gelato is one of our most popular and appreciated flavors. It is very rich and usually should be coupled with another smoother flavor. When we open the case to serve Gelato, in order to conserve the product we have to shut down the air condictioned temporarly, that's why you had the impression the place was warm.

Come back anytime!

“Very nice”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

It was very nice ice cream. Bit overrated, as I really was expecting something far more amazing from the other reviews!
