Great gelato and, as others have noted, always a variety of very creative flavors. The staff is always very cheerful, friendly and helpful. No doubt the best choice for ice cream if you're in Laguna.

Some of their flavors are based on movies we went they had Alice in Wonderland theme. There were Talking Flowers, Cheshire Cat and Mad Hatter probably the world's only tea flavored ice cream. Another time we visited they had Wizard of Oz and they had Ruby Slippers and Winged Monkeys. This place makes out of this world ice cream!

We came here because we were hot and wanted something cold! It did not disappoint. I've never been to a gelato place that has so many choices of flavors. It was awesome. There always seems to be a line, but it moves quickly. We will definitely come back!

Treat yourself to the amazing and unusual flavors at Dolce Gelato. This is the best gelato I have ever had in any part of the world. Be careful though, it's addicting and you will want to return again and again

We have been all over the world eating gelato. Dolce stands among the best I have ever had. They have regular custom flavors, and also seasonal specialties. Their staff is always freindly and attentive.
