I've been searching for lemon Italian Ice since I left New York 30+ years ago and finally found it in this little gem of a store in Little Italy!

Since returning from a long vacation in Florence a few years ago, I've been on a never-ending search for good gelato. This place is the absolute closest I've found! The flavors are spot on. I got hazelnut and dark chocolate and both flavors were robust....More

The gelato at Gelato Classico Italian was fabulous! I had the dark chocolate. My kids had the expresso bean. The service was fast and friendly. The seating is limited.

Small gelato destination on Stockton Street with a great selection of gelato flavors, but quite expensive and even the "large" size is rather small.

This place is right around the corner from Tony's Pizza (highly recommend). The S'mores gelato was incredible.

This is a tiny place off the main road in the Italian section of North Beach. There was a decent selection and both my daughters ordered smalls ($4.25). I tried both and I have to say I've had much better before. The flavor was fine...More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
