“Almost perfect!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

This is a delightful little place near the waterfront to buy a gelato before you wander around. The gelatos are delicious, and there are many customary as well as unusual flavors. The only reason I can't give it an "excellent" is because the wait was very long. There were at least five people ahead of me in line and only one person working the counter. She was awesome....but they could have used a second person. :)

“Very good Gelato poor service! :(”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I love love Gelato and I had to try this place after I saw it on tripadvisor. We were visiting beautiful Charleston and stopped by here. First I was kind of disappointed by the lack of flavors they offered. Mostly only chocolate varieties. What was not so good was the service. The girl that helped me was very rude! I asked for a waffle cone and she accidentally tipped my gelato over on the counter and then just shoved a cone on top of it when I told her I ordered a waffle cone. No apology or thank you. Plus I felt she really should of gave me a new cup since it really fell on the counter. Gross. Now regarding the gelato....it was good, tasted more like ice cream then gelato so that was disappointing. Very creamy.

“Great location next to the park”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

The service is excellent. The Gelato is very good. It is worth the stop as you walk around Charleston. This gelato is richer than most that I have tasted.
