Line out the door on a Saturday afternoon, but it moved quickly. The gelato is amazing and well worth it. Cute little sidewalk entryway too. Must go try!

This is one of the best Gelato Paradiso locations. There is one flavor which is, unfortunately, available only in April - lavender ice cream. It is better than anything else! Dolce de leche is also very tasty.

Very authentic little Italian ice cream shop. On weekends and holidays it is often a lot of people and long queue but it is worth it. Large selection and several kinds are gluten-free. You can taste different types of ice cream before deciding which type...More

Omg!! This was amazing!! I love ice cream and all its varieties, and this didn't disappoint! This was well worth the long line, and the size portions are enormous. The waffle cone was also delicious and worth getting!!

We went here twice while on vacation it was so good! The homemade cones are a must and the Gelato is scruptious! I had half double chocolate and coconut - the best! Lines at night, be patient, it's worth it.

I love walking up the boulevard and turning into the quaint alleyway that holds this laguna beach gem.

Too many great flavors! Our family of six people tried many different flavors and the wait staff was cordial and answered many questions with a smile! Will definitively go back before we leave!

Great flavors to choose from, whole family loved it! The wait is long but worth it. Finding parking was tough.

The smell, the choices and the tastes! Perfecto!! We love this place. It's the best Gelato in California! You just have to "wait" in line for your turn to test and choose!

We have been here dozens of times. There are many flavors and every one that I tried have been delicious. Try as many samples as you like. The only negative is that there is often a line of customers.
