“The original Paloma on St.Clair didn't charge these prices”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

I grew up with Paloma on St. Clair. Back then, it was affordable. Now, it's just a money grabber. The smallest of ice creams is just shy of $5. So for a family of four, it's very likely that you'll be spending over $20 for an Italian gelato. Sure, it's nice to treat yourself once or twice in the summer, but not everyone can afford ice cream at these prices.

“A taste of Italy in every cone.”
Reviewed April 16, 2011

Definitely "Best Gelato" outside of Italy. I just returned from Italy - what a cultural trip that was. We ate Gelato every night in Venice. I find La Paloma's Gelato comparable to what I had experienced in Rome, Verona, Milan. Of course, most of the gelaterias (ice cream shops) there are more like 'Mom'n'Pop' cafe/pastry shops with one display of gelato. You'll find a few larger ones like La Paloma in the bigger cities. Viva Gelato!!! La Paloma all summer long...until my next flight back in August.

“Way to expensive!”
Reviewed March 4, 2011

The gelato is excellent but it is very expensive. A family of 4 can expect to pay $20+ for gelato!!!
