THE GOOD: A cute little gelato and coffee place located right off Orange Avenue. My fellow traveler immediately chose a dark chocolate gelato in a waffle cone. The flavor was rich and creamy, what one would expect of good gelato. THE AVERAGE: I had a harder time selecting a flavor, and, in the end was disappointed. The server patiently offered... More

First The Good: Right in the heart of Cornado's village, Nado Gelato is a must. I've traveled extensively through Italy and this comes as close to any gelato I've had in America. It's dense, creamy and intensely flavored. Grab a scoop or two and enjoy walking around the village and seeing the sights. The Bad: The only thing bad about... More

Easy to access right off Orange Avenue. Friendly staff willing to put up with multiple "Can I try a sample of..." Good portion sizes. Has the tiramisu and chocolate flavors. Yummy!

A must stop if you are out and about in Coronado. Gelato was absolutely delicious and the shop was adorable. A great way to stop and take a break from shopping.

Find this gelato shop, buy a cup or cone, and you'll swear you died and went to heaven. I don't even eat ice cream normally but after buying the grandchildren gelato and sampling theirs, I was hooked. OMG, it's delicious!

Wonderful treat any time off the year. This neighborhood shop is a local gem. Put it on the list of stops in Coranado. Wishing distance from all the down town places.

This place has the best gelato. Great flavors, smooth, creamy consistency, and good service are found here! There are many flavors to choose from. All of them are delicious. The employees patiently allow you to try many before deciding on a flavor. We went three times during our visit to Coronado. Try the speciale. It was absolutely delicious!

Walked in here because my wife was in need of a coffee fix. Walked out with some awesome gelato. Some of the best I have tried with too many good flavors to try. Friendly service as well.
