“Nice place to stop on the way by”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 via mobile

Good ice cream and decently generous. Asked for hot fudge and got plenty of it. We walked in just minutes before close but it's easy to see the staff would be upbeat and fun.

“Local & yummy !”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

Great ice cream, friendly staff. Walk down 3 buildings for a slice of pizza @ Za's pizza first. That is what the locals do!

“Dinner at Za's - dessert from Swensen's....”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

I chose the "walk around sundae" with peanut butter chocolate ice cream. They basically put a waffle cone in a cup, fill it with ice cream, fudge, nuts, whipped cream and a cherry on top and send you on your happy, merry way. I want one now!

“Not true "gelato" but it works as dessert”
Reviewed 23 April 2013 via mobile

I mean, this is not ice cream as I expect it, having being raised in Rome, but still, it does the job and tastes good; and if you're longing for something closer to gelato, Naia in North Beach is not far away!
