“Delicious”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Delicious but expensive. The Belgian chocolate is delicious. You can mix flavors as a single scoop. The vanilla is ok.

“Gilato better than sorbetto.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I had coffee gilato, my husband had cookie gilato, and I also had mango sorbetto (which I usually love).

The sorbetto was so nasty, I tossed it out of the cone and ate the cone.

The coffee and cookie flavors were pretty good. No better than any other gilato I've had, but good.

The cone was good but not better than other cones I've had. The shape was nice - like a bowl.

“Island goodness”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

So many local tropical flavors. Sorbets are very creamy without any dairy. Pricey for a small cup, but worth it.
