Good variety of flavors, I went with the salted caramel and dulce de leche. Plenty of seating. Patient and friendly staff who didn't mind our repeated request or indecisiveness. A must stop when walking the street!

My wife and I tried this after dinner on Valentine's Day. It was our first time here and it was amazing. The place has a very cool "hang out" type vibe. The staff was friendly and helpful. They allowed us to sample a few flavors...More

Chocolate Hazelnut is the bomb I must admit. Otherwise it's like any other gelato place I have ever visited.
