Great traditional Italian flavors that you don't see often, and also yummy creative and contemporary flavors. Overflowing portions, convenient location, super friendly service. Thank God this isn't in my neighborhood! I'd be there daily.

We were excited for some gelato and walked up from the children's pool to try this place. We entered at the same time as another family and held the door for them. Since they knew the people working there they started talking to them and began to get helped. No problem, we were still looking anyway. After waiting a few... More

My 12-year-old granddaughter was out to visit and took her down to see the seals. On the way down, walked past and they were giving out samples. She loved the sample she got and pleaded that we stop before we headed home. Making memories over a cup of gelato.

Some very different flavors. Good gelato overall and the portions are massive. Try the BANANA FUDGE and LEMON COOKIE.

The gelato is fantastic, and the flavors are always fun to choose from. The butter salted caramel is one of the best caramel gelatos I have had.

Stopped off here for an ice-cream. It's quite small with limited seating. Flavours are quite varied - so all in all a nice gelateria!

They have a great selection of gelato and sorbet. The staff serves very generous (possibly too generous?) portions literally overflowing whatever size cup you select. My four year old couldn't even eat all of his before it melted everywhere and he's a pro. Next time I'd ask for half that amount even at the same price so it wouldn't melt... More

This was a refreshing stop on a hot day in La Jolla. They had a great selection of favors of gelato. Also had some specialty coffee drinks.

Did a "walk-by" and decided to stop in for a mid-afternoon treat. Tried the Banana Crunch Ice Cream in a sugar cone. It was very rich, creamy, and flavorful. Better than Cold Stone or Ben and Jerry's in my opinion. Really, really rich - the texture was smooth with flavors that worked well with each other. This Banana Crunch ice... More

After all the walking we did, this was the perfect stop. Had a berry cone and a chocolate toffee one. Delicious flavors, Service was fast, employees very polite.
