Cute little spot that has been here for many years. Kids still love to go there. Great flavors but isn't chocolate always the best?

Love the all the gelatos, but my favorite is coppa mista (blend of chocolate, vanilla bean and pistachio).....so rich, smooth and creamy. Great tasting, except it's quite pricey for a pint. If you love the thick, chewy richness, you won't mind paying extra.

Most recently, we arrived one night just as the owner was locking to door. He unlocked it and scooped our cones. As always, the gelato was great. Try the ginger - it has chunks of real ginger in it.

We often have dinner at a local restaurant on San Anselmo Avenue and stop in for sweet treat after. Excellent gelato with classic flavors.
