First time having gelato! It was so good! Located in the heart of Siesta Key! You can choose to have multiple flavors or just one.

If you want authentic, made-from-scratch locally-sourced ingredients, this the place. You can sample three flavors to help you decide, and that decision may be difficult because there's something to please every palate. Don't miss it.

Awesome flavors and authentic Italian gelato. It is absolutely wonderful and so much more flavor than just ice cream or custard. We stop here every time we visit siesta!

Best gelato I’ve ever eaten. Lots of delicious flavors. Makes it hard to choose. Best solution is to go back numerous times but unfortunately I didn’t have the opportunity. Next time I’m in Siesta Key I plan on coming by daily.

This gelato is a little taste explosion for your mouth. The salted caramel is to die for and the consistent creaminess and smooth texture of all their gelato reminds me of Italy. You will look at the small cup price and think it is expensive,...More

We really wanted to like it. We had to go all the way to Siesta Key to find gelato. It is okay but the Gelato place on St. Armands Circle is just better. Not only that, finding Ciao Gelato isn't as easy as it could...More

The owner comes from a long line of gelato makers in Rome and takes justifiable pride in his amazingly silky, authentic Italian gelato that is lovingly made on the premises and uses fresh, organic ingredients. A conversation with the owner is like getting a degree...More
