Went here 5 of 6 nights on our trip and would have been 6 or 6 if we'd not been in Volcano that night :D - highly recommend - great selection of flavors and they're all drool worthy.

I have had gelato all over the world and this is the BEST we had on any of the Hawaiian islands! The service was excellent and the variety of flavors made choosing very difficult! If you're on the Big Island - make sure you stop...here - you will not regret it!More

Perhaps I've been spoiled with gelato from Italians, but I must say we all agreed this was much more like ice cream. If you go expecting the amazing gelato experience where the flavors are intense and the texture is super smooth you will be disappointed....I kept having to change my expectations to ice cream to be able to enjoy my order. Even then, it was just okMore

We ended up stopping a couple of times - just to try some more flavors. Service was fast and friendly with generous portion sizes. Well worth a stop!

This is hands down the best gelato I've ever had. I tried the Haupia and the Lilikoi and it was an amazing combo!

Great home-made icecreams. Flavors are rotating and seasonal. We usually get pints to take-out. Hzelnut Praliné. White chocolate ginger and Coconut Haystacks are our top three! They have another location on the way to Captain Cook.

Samples of anything you would like to try, great customer service, with a smile. It just doesn't get any better for dessert in Kona Town than a stroll after dinner topped off with Gypsea Gelato!

Try them once and you'll be hooked. Great flavors and GENEROUS servings, friendly staff and an airy, pleasant shop to sit and slurp.
