What can I say!!!!!! Delicious. Yummy. The best gelato I've had. I had a small dish of pistachio and coconut while my husband had the banana. The only problem is we live in Indiana and we can't enjoy this on a regular basis!!!!!

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.

Dolce Gelato is a family-owned business in Laguna Beach. We make each pan of gelato from scratch each day in our store using multiple milks and different sugars to achieve perfect balance and flavor, just like you'll find in the small shops in Italy.
