I prefer Dolce Gelato on Broadway. Brilliant flavors!!! Staff always helpful and delightful and love that you can try a zillion flavors.

Hubby and I were treated to Gelato in Oct 2017 when we first were in Laguna. In April 2018 we took the kids for a family vacation and knew they would love Gelato Paradiso. We went twice!

Best gelato in Laguna but be prepared to wait and enjoy the people watching. Local high schoolers dish out the gelato with healthy packed scoops. Plenty of kids, families and couples enjoying the vibe.

Gelato is much better and cheaper than the in Venice, Italy. My favorite here is the Pistacio and Coffee on a waffle cone. We always stop here at this gelato shop everytime we visit Laguna Beach.

My wife and I visit SoCal several times a year. When here, I have to visit Gelato Paradiso 2-3 times each visit. They have the best gelato (ice cream) of anywhere I’ve been.

Stopped in here after dinner. Absolutely recommend. I've had Gelato in Italy as well as several other locations and this is some of the best. The selection is fantastic. It is kind of hidden down a little alley of stores but you'll probably notice it...More

A little expensive but fantastic ice cream. But my Italian friends say that it is ok and that it is not so Italian. I still like it though. Just remember that lines can be long But still great ice cream ^^
