“Yummy!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

This is as delicious as the gelato I've had in Italy. I had the delicious chocolate hazelnut and equally delicious hazelnut (sans chocolate) on a cone. (You can combine 2 flavors on the smallest sized waffle cone.) This was a great combo and I highly recommend it.

There's no place to eat inside but there are several cute benches nearby. Laguna is the kind of place where there's plenty to look at while you eat your cone (galleries, people, the ocean, and cute shops.) Gelato Paradiso must be mobbed in the summertime.

I'll be back next time that I'm in Laguna to try some other flavors, even if it means having to bike there to burn off the calories! If you're in Laguna, save some room for the tasty temptations at Gelato Paradiso.

“Dessert Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

Hidden in a walkway between streets, across from the Hotel Laguna this gelato shop is worth the effort to navigate. The multiple flavors are delicious. My favorite was a dark fudge chocolate so awesome I wanted seconds. Reasonable priced and very popular. Be ready for a short wait.

“We visited this Gelato Shop while on the Flavors of Laguna Food Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

So many delicious flavors. We each received a cup and could choose two flavors. Yum! I would definitely return for more in the future if I lived in the area.

“Wonderful gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

Hidden down a little alley and the first time we tried to go here we walked right by it. This is a great after dinner treat and the waffle cones are out of this world. The line can be a little intimidating however well worth the wait and reasonably priced (especially compared to the ice cream store down the street).
