Just had the stracciato gelato (which we know as chocolate chip). Perfection. Creamy, delicious, but not too sweet. A perfect way to wrap up a fun day in Charleston.

My wife and I live here in Charleston and she has always told me that we need to go get the best Gelato in town at Paolo's. We went to Italy for our honeymoon and ate plenty of Gelato while we were there, so I went to Paolo's with high expectations. I loved the atmosphere as we walked in, very welcoming as we ordered our treats. The gelato was amazing and we spoke with owner who is a native of Italy. We spoke about the areas of Italy we visited and mentioned Venice, where he is from. He asked if we ate any gelato from the San Marco's Square area and with excitement we confirmed we did! He said that was his family's gelato shop! We were so happy we have some of Italy's best gelato that it can offer right here in Charleston! So it turns out I never had Paolo's gelato in Charleston before, but we surely had it half way around the world in Italy! Great place and very recommended!

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.

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
