Great place to walk for Gelato, Delicious and very satisfying! Located in a quaint brick walkway. You may wait in line a bit, mostly because there are so many great flavors, it is hard to choose once you get to tasting. The line moves quickly thanks to the many adorable young workers behind the counter. Large scoops! A favorite place.

Nice taste along with good, clean facility. We usually stop in and get a chocolate gelato. They make their own product and is shows. Just a block off PCH. Will continue to visit their facility..

I had the coffee and dulce in a fresh cone and it was so delicious. Very creamy and not overwhelming rich so I could have easily eaten another cone. Sad that I had to leave!

I love gelato because it has a deeper flavor than ice cream. Gelato Paradiso is one of the few places that allows you to put four flavors in a medium-sized cup. (Most allow only two.) However, I still went with two: chocolate and pistachio. This meant turning away from my favorite, salted caramel, and mango sorbet my second favorite. Hmm,... More

Waited in line for 20 minutes, my daughter said this is the best gelato in California. After ordering teh strawberry cheesecake / tiramisu combination, she was right. The wait goes by quick and the service is fast and polite. Worth the wait and cost.

First of, the smell down the quaint alley to get there draws you in with its amazing smell! Once you get your gelato, and there can be a long line in the summer, you'll be rewarded with a delicious cone that takes you all the to Italy.

Doesn't matter where you had diner, ditch the dessert menu and head over. Any time spent waiting in line is completely worth it. Be sure to sample liberally before landing on your choice...each silky smooth frozen concoction is better than the next.
