Clean, cute place. But they didn't have nocciola so I left. There is always a chance they rotate flavors and I picked a bad day.

Holy Moly Holy Gelato! What's not to love! My friend introduced us to this place tonight and I think it is awesome! They have 50 flavors and they would have had all 50 but only can fit 30 at a time - 18 flavors of gelato and 12 vegan non-dairy flavors of sorbet. They make their own gelato and sorbet... More

Having fallen in love with gelato while in Italy, no I'm not bragging, just providing a reference point, I now seek it out. This small little shop, which has a strange assortment of knishy items insides, serves a good gelato. I had the Goat Cheeses vanilla, I know, sounds odd, but tasting is believing, and the chocolate mint on a... More

What a hidden treat. Lots of flavors. Taste several. You can even get more than one in your cup. But my favorite is sea salt caramel. Yum!

This is some seriously good gelato. They have a lot of flavors (you can get samples) and it's very rich. Enough to get just one scoop because of the richness. Wish this place was closer to where I live.

I have tasted many of the gelato flavors here and have found them to be average in taste and consistency compared to some of the gelato vendors in San Francisco and Berkeley. For me, it is not a "must go to" place whenever I have an urge for gelato. They do have a very good lineup of baked goods and... More

From the warm welcome through to the eclectic mix of products for sale, this is the only place you should go for your ice cream. The staff are so helpful and friendly, the choice mind boggling, the green tea really special and the welcome superb. Go and experience it.

GREAT GELATO!!!... a much better utilization of whatever I can't remember was there before. I love the owners, the food is great, and there is definitely a large number of fun little gifts and interesting last minute minutia treats for a friend or loved one. Fun to grab it out of the blue after a nice dinner on the walk... More
