“Delicious!”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Great gelato, but it's not cheap. Single scoops are $5.00. However, it was well worth it. The hazelnut and the chocolate were both intense and creamy.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

A really nice, refreshing end of the day pre-bedtime snack for all the family. We had the Dulce de Leche which was quite decadent. The babies (3 years and 18 months) had their fair share too:-) Very limited seating, but it was a nice night and we strolled around

“Nice gelato but limited flavors”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

Don't remember if there were 6 or 8 flavors, several of which were fruit flavors. I enjoyed the gelato but would have liked more choices. Very, very limited seating both inside and outside.

“Genuine Italian Gelato”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

The day we visited, Paolo himself - an Italian of Venetian origins - was in house and entertained us while we each had a cup of 4 wonderful gelato flavors, the Passionfruit was my favorite. Fresh and refreshing! Highly recommended.

“yummy and refreshing”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

We had a later lunch and weren't very hungry at dinner so we opted for gelato. It was very refreshing. Unique flavors. I had pineapple. It was delicious. My husband had Rocky Road and loved it. He said it was the best he ever had. Will look for Paolo's again
