Went on a Tuesday night, so no waiting in line. There were only about 6 flavors to offer. I had mint chocolate chip, husband had vanilla. $12 of average.

This was wonderful....We really enjoyed the Gelato...just like what we had in Italy. The young woman who waited on us was so pleasant and helpful. We stopped by every day.

We stopped by Paolo's for a quick dessert. I had a cup of lemon and mango sorbet. It had a good taste but reminded more of ices than sorbet. My husband had a cup of gelato. The staff was very cordial.

I absolutely love Paolo’s. Flavors are so lite and satisfying. Pistachio is a must try. Flavors can be limited on some days if you’re choosy eater. I wish the shop was open all year.

We had great gelato here the first evening of our 3 night stay. When we tried to go back at least twice, the store was closed for no apparent reason. It was very disappointing.
