We had an hour to kill while waiting for our tour of the Historic Village so decided to stop here for a bite to eat. Best decision ever! My husband and I shared a chicken quesadilla (large enough for 2) and took about 50 pictures of the quirky, charming interior, reminiscent of a 50's diner. Looking down on us was... More

We're sitting here eating our gelato on the porch now. I got the goat cheese, raspberry, and rosemary and my wife got the Chirv. Perfect dessert at the Pensacola Seafood Festival. The lady and gentleman working were very friendly. We will come back.

I took my girlfriend for a nice desert downtown after our dinner, the shop was a fun and vibrant place with a great staff. Gary (the man working at the time) was so helpful and was more than happy to show us some of the many cool pictures and signs around the shop. We chose bushwhacker gelato which tasted just... More

Thank you for coming by and enjoying our gelato. Our Bushwhacker is a pretty popular flavor, happy you liked it! Gary is always helpful with customers, he's kind of the beating heart of my little shop. Please stop in again. More

Quirky coffee shop with interesting house made gelato and super friendly staff. We spent a relaxing hour sitting outside enjoying a latte and the pineapple mango and vanilla bean gelato. There's a great selection of original flavors that are sure to please the palate. One of the best "finds" on our recent trip to Pensacola.

Thanks! Gary, our wonderful manager and all around shop super hero, is a treasure for the shop. Our customers are always happy with his warm, smiling service. He also makes a mean quesadilla. We hope you can stop in again sometime. More

Where else can you sit in kiss-shaped stools and gaze at Christopher Walken while savoring awesome gelato? A must-see spot with tables indoors and out. Steps away from historic downtown Pensacola home tours and museums. A welcoming, fun, friendly atmosphere.

So happy that you liked your visit to us. We really are in a great spot in downtown Pensacola, and try to fit into the historic vibe with our eclectic shop. Come see us again. More

This place is keeping its standards high. Second time visiting Dolce and Gelato. Still amazing gelato and service. Gelato was so good i even bought a pint to take back to my hotel room to eat while i was in town. The two people that were working were very welcoming and warm. I think they changed their espresso beans because... More

While I did not personally try any sweets, I did hang out here while my family did, and we were all satisfied with our experience. What is most memorable and making this place special is that almost every inch of the walls is covered with things to look at. With every turn of the head is something new and interesting... More

Great little place in historic Pensacola. Funky, even if studiously so. Good gelato and the owner has a great story!

We had the Strawberry Basil Sorbetto. It was quite tasty and refreshing, and I believe they used fresh basil (it was growing outside).

Thank Andrew W
hotrod63, Owner at Dolce & Gelato, responded to this review

Yes, we use our own fresh herbs in the Spring and Summer, they make the sorbettos and gelatos that much nicer. We also use seasonal fresh fruit as much as possible,mahi chief is why you will see a lot of strawberry, blueberry and peach this summer. Thanks for stopping by. More
