Having experienced gelato in Italy many times, we were a little disappointed in this parlor. Flavors were weak in taste, little too sweet and not so creamy. Would have loved to taste their pistachio flavor, but there was none. What is nice was the bench...More

We walked over from Il Casaro (which was great) for an after-dinner gelato. The gelato was pretty good, and consistent with the pick multiple flavors approach found in Italy. The place was empty when we were in there, and maybe a little uninviting. The guy...More

We had dinner at Original Joes just across the street and ended here for some wonderful dessert - the dark chocolate, raspberry, strawberry lemonade and mango were all great choices.

The gelato at Gelato Classico Italian was fabulous! I had the dark chocolate. My kids had the expresso bean. The service was fast and friendly. The seating is limited.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming

North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
