“Best downtown Gelato!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Love this place. They have such great flavors like pistachio, Pepe Nero (olive oil and pepper, which sounds crazy but is amazing!), Amareno (Black cherry) and salted caramel are just a few to choose from. Every once in a while they come out with something unique, like chocolate jalapeno which I wish they would do more often. And you can try multiple flavors in a generous cup, have it in a cone or even better, dropped into a cup of hot espresso!! Yum! I love this one in the winter. I'm a local and frequent this spot whenever I am downtown. It's in a lovely part of the downtown area of our revitalized little city and is a nice place to take visiting friends and family. Nearby restaurants and shops make this a 'must stop' along the way.

“Excellent Stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

This is an excellent spot for gelato and Italian coffee in St. Pete. If you are in town, it is definitely worth stopping. You can walk along Beach Dr. or just relax. Excellent quality and fast service.

“Great Gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

For the medium you could have 4 choices. Chocolate chip and mocha were favorites but all were good. Tables inside and out. A good choice when visiting the area.
