Our server let us taste different gelatos to see if we liked them. He really seemed to enjoy his job!

The gelato here was good, not great, but a nice break from shave ice if you are sick of it. I had the peanut butter and dark chocolate, which is a good combo. My husband had the coconut and pineapple which was pretty tasty.

This is not a real restaurant, but they make the best gelato and sorbet on the Island. Taste what you like, but settle for the POG (Passionfruit, Orange, Guava) Sorbet with the Belgian chocolate gelato. Yum!!! while you are there, browse the made in Kauai...More

We were excited to see what tropical flavors would be offered in Hawaii and we weren't disappointed. Such things as coconut, macadamia nut, banana, green tea, Kalaheo cookies as well as traditional flavors are offered. You can choose a small cup or a big waffle...More

We were in this shopping center and saw this Gelato shop. I was excited to see that they serve Sorbetto which is dairy free. It was tasty and just as good as gelato I've had in the past. We sure wish more shops would serve...More

Hadn't had anything that gave me that Wow this is delicious until we went here. Never had Gelato b4 either so to sum it up I've been twice within days. A must have!
