Sensational gelato -- I had the lilikoi mixed with dark chocolate. I'm glad I can't get this at home, because I'd gain 80 pounds.....

This place is great - a small shop with true Italian quality crepes, pastries and gelato - though we only stumbled on it by accident, since it is just two doors down from highly rented Annie's burger place on highway 11 a few miles south...More

Gio is a true European artist with gelato and pastries. The pastries are works of art that taste great.

After attempting to find a good bakery on the Big Island, we happened upon Gio's -- and were pleased with their delicious, freshly-made pastries. They had an excellent variety of offerings that we sampled over several visits :) The gelato was also yummy as well......More

We found gio's by accident while driving south on the way to Captain Cook. The gelatos are delicious, creamy and smooth. Try the mauka trail a wonderful blend of chocolate, coffee and Mac nuts! The fruit gelatos are also excellent- try the passion friut!

Had a few flavors, all good, stop in totally worth it! While the standard Italian flavors are offered, local Island flavors are too.

The gelato is super-solid and what makes it worth the stop are the great local ingredients used. It's right next to Kona's Own Cafe which is great for a meal before this great dessert.

We haven't had gelato this good since Italy. It is a bit pricy, but after first bite, we didn't care. 24 flavors.....I had honey, ginger lemon. My new favorite. Right next door to Annie's Island burgers, had gelato for dessert and picked up some equally...More
