“Fantastic selection of NON-DAIRY gelatos as well!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

What a treat... as dairy intolerant I usually miss out on any family trips to Ice Cream or Gelato shops. But this place had a fantastic selection of Non-Dairy gelatos on offer as well! They were almond milk based and utterly delicious. The whole family agreed that these were the best we've ever had! GO!

“The BEST gelato ever!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

When you go here, you'll be confused as to which or how many flavors to try--they are all outstanding!! A great place to grab a cup of gelato and peruse the streets of Laguna!

“Wow - gelato in the U.S.! What a treat”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

Last year my hubbie and I were in Italy and got hooked on gelato. So creamy, so yummy - the best dessert ever.

Well my daughter told us that she had some gelato down in Laguna Beach and we were totally surprised to hear there was a shop "nearby". So next time we were in the area, we found the place. WOW - we were surprised. There was a great selection of flavors. So we both enjoyed some and YUM, we will be back.

The excellent rating is on the flavor. Service and atmosphere - what do you expect?? You stand in line to get your gelato and eat as you are walking! But, I guess if you rate the ocean view as you are walking, that too can't be beat.

“You just can't stop going back”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Once you wait in line at Dolce, and step up to the counter and order your Gelato ... you're sure to return, once twice, maybe more!

Excellent flavors, and fair price, and the taste was fantastic. It's hard to believe this Italian has only had a few Gilato's over the years but this was the best.
