This place was really good, the customer service was great! It’s really clean in this place, they even have ice creams for dogs. I don’t think they allow pets inside, almost sure of it, and the doggie pops was in a separate freezer off to the side. I recommend this place!!!

Absolutely fantastic chocolate icecream! Second someone else's review that this was the best icecream they've had in the US - this chocolate flavor was the absolute best I've had. My partner was not so lucky with their flavor choices though. Still, 10/10 would recommend.


Avoid this place because the hours of operation are meaningless. Tried to get some gelato, but the handwritten sign on the door said "Back in 5".... Well 20 minutes later, still not back and a gelato hungry crowd waiting outside. Needless to say, we left. Very disappointing and unprofessional. No way to run a business!

I loved their strawberry gelato which was dairy free. They had 2 other dairy free options and lots of traditional gelato flavors.

No photos because I ate it to quickly ? Great service and location. Best gelato I’ve had outside of Italy!

Delicious Gelato, many flavors I have not tasted before! They had 2 or 3 Vegan flavors too.Kind of surprised that dogs were allowed inside?


Rose and Pistachio was a good combo. Friend also liked the Ube.They had nice outdoor tables and seating.Perfect after a meal or for a craving.Pleasant downtown vibe.

Great gelato, nice and creamy with rich flavor. Tiramisu, vanilla, and chocolate all got passing scores!

I don't know how we'd never seen this place before... it's easily my new favorite gelato spot in the Bay Area! We tried the Violet, Strawberry, Pistachio, Stracciatella, and the Toasted Almond and Caramelized Figs. Phew. Just delicious, every flavor! They also sell doggie yogurt, which was a big win for my girl ☺️

Twice now the gelato was perfect. Solid variety of flavors. Also the amaretto cookies sold in store are some of the best I’ve ever had. Wish they sold ice cream sandwiches with any flavor of ice cream.

Highly recommend the banana caramel chip flavor!

The best gelato I’ve found with many unique and delicious flavors using fresh fruits and ingredients on a daily basis. I come in every time I am in Berkeley, because it’s head and shoulders above the gelato in the Sacramento area!

Delicious gelato, and nice to have a seat outside with the many tables around.

Hands down it's the best Gelato I've had in the USA and significantly better than what I've had in most touristy places in Italy itself. The vanilla flavor was sublime.
