“Great gelato - lots of dairy free and even a sugar free option!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Delicious gelato with many local favourites. One of the few shops that stays open later (until 10pm) around Poipu.

The gelato is great and their service is amazing! We've gone twice during our week long stay and plan to visit again before leaving.

“Excellent Gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Got some gelato after a Puka Dog next door. It really hit the spot. Excellent taste and texture. Almost as good as the gelato in Europe.

“Loved Gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

It was so nice to have so many non dairy options! I had the pineapple and coconut which were both delish! I tasted my husbands dairy gelato, it was devine. The waffle cones were good too.
