This is a Gelato Parlor, nothing fancy, just deliciousness on a cone or in a cup. They had many flavors, some fruity others not. It was heaven!! The server/cashier was pleasant, knowledgeable about the flavors and gave samples. There were even seats and tables so...More

This is in fact the best gelato in San Francisco. Great flavor variety, but burnt caramel is not to be missed. Really friendly staff and worth a stop after lunch or dinner.

They offer gelato and sorbet in enough flavors to make everyone happy. They will give you free samples so you can make a selection before you order! It's a great way to finish the evening after dinner with a nice tasty desert!

The service was good, although not particularly friendly. We each got two samples, and then ordered two Piccolo (small) cups of gelato. The cinnamon and the stracciatella (Italian chocolate chip) were both excellent. $4.50 for a small cup seemed a bit high for the amount...More

My family loves gelato, we look for it just about everywhere we go. This one has a convenient location and indoor seating to stay warm. The gelato tastes good, but not very creamy. It was nice to try, and we'll explore other gelato stores in...More

Not quite Italy, but the quality and selection are very good. The fruit sorbets were especially intense in flavor and delicious.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
