To start, there are 2 locations so maybe one location is better than the other. We went to the one by Gabriella's. The gelato was okay. My husband got strawberry and while we appreciate the use of real strawberries, the overall gelato lacked flavor. I got the strawberries and cream flavor and it was lacking in flavor also. They do...

Good Italian ice cream. Refreshing when it 85 degrees and 80% humidity at 8:00 pm. Service is average considering it is just an ice cream shop.

We frequented this gelato place each night on our vacation. We have enjoyed all the flavored we have tried. Each time we go in there is something new to pick from-you have to try it!!

We went around 2:00 p.m & they were already out of many basic flavors like chocolate. The employee was not friendly; definitely didn't seem to like his job. The gelato wasn't anything great. Honestly, the kids & I would've been happier with treats from Dairy Queen & it would've been cheaper.

This locally owned ice cream shop has two location on South Padre Island. I believe both are adjacent to one of those large souvenir shops along the main drag. My husband, son and I tried them out this summer while on the island for vacation. We each got a 2 flavor medium sized bowl of the gelato. I like this... More

We had a treat after eating at Louie's and riding Go-carts at Gravity Park. They have a great selection of ice cream and the service was fantastic. In fact, my daughter's first choice of ice cream was not in stock, but half way through our ice cream, the gentleman working behind the counter went into their freezer and found some... More

The ice cream was icy and not very flavorful. The place seemed pretty dirty. I'm not that picky but this ice cream leaves a lot to be desired. We won't go back.

The gelato was decent. What stands out was waiting five minutes for a girl to come from the back then her acting as if we were disturbing her. We figured she was having a bad day so we still tipped her to no thank you , no come back just awkward silence and her returning to her phone. Oh well.

I took my kids to this location so that they could have a taste what an Italian ice cream dessert tastes like. It was okay, but the service i got here on 06/26/2016 was terrible. All I did was ask for sprinkles and the server looked at me as if i had asked her to rope the moon. She then... More
