Holy toledo, I thought we had good gelato in some other South Beach places, but Milani is it. The proprietor hails from Italy and makes the gelato fresh, each day, right in the store. You can actually see the gelato machine behind the counter. Just one, and he makes it all right there. The gelato is presented in a really... More

After an afternoon or evening of walking the shops or dining on Espanola Way, nothing refreshes like a stop in this shop. They have a nice variety of gelato and each one is delicious. The service is in the laid-back Latino way that may be a little slow by American standards, but is always friendly. I make sure to stop... More

A small wheel of gelato flavors does not substantiate the forced 2 scoops at near $6 in a cardboard cup served with a plastic spoon, nor the inconsideration of the other female worker who took up one of only 4 seats in the air conditioned interior to openly count cash while ignoring patrons forced to lean against the counter to...

Ice cream was OK. When we sat inside on high chairs at the counter it was really dirty. My husband saw they had a Lavazza coffee maker and ordered an espresso. He specifically told the server when to stop the maker to have a short espresso. He told her twice but she acted like she didn't understand. At the end... More

Visited here after a wonderful dinner at Havana 1957. We love gelato and it isn't very popular where we live. We got a medium gelato cup and was plenty for the two of us to share. They will give you small spoonful of samples if you like. Take a look at the spinning wheel and take your pick of about... More

I doubt there is a bad flavor as we tried probably 5 or 6. The cone is delicious and a great size. Lemon, Hazelnut and Black Cherry Chocolate are all amazing!

The ice tastes great with some good service, the ice display is one of a kind never seen something so cool as here. Think this is one of the better ice selling points in south beach on espanola way.
