They offer gelato and sorbet in enough flavors to make everyone happy. They will give you free samples so you can make a selection before you order! It's a great way to finish the evening after dinner with a nice tasty desert!

The service was good, although not particularly friendly. We each got two samples, and then ordered two Piccolo (small) cups of gelato. The cinnamon and the stracciatella (Italian chocolate chip) were both excellent. $4.50 for a small cup seemed a bit high for the amount...More

We really loved this spot to stop and enjoyed some amazing flavors of gelato. My mother doesn't like to try anything new, but she enjoyed this tasty stop too. They have many flavors and combinations. The staff were friendly and let you try samples before...More

My family loves gelato, we look for it just about everywhere we go. This one has a convenient location and indoor seating to stay warm. The gelato tastes good, but not very creamy. It was nice to try, and we'll explore other gelato stores in...More

Not quite Italy, but the quality and selection are very good. The fruit sorbets were especially intense in flavor and delicious.

My family had gelato at Naia on 2 consecutive nights. Yes, it's that good! They give you as many samples as you like to make sure you get the right flavor/combination. The pistachio and hazelnut flavor were stand outs for me!

This is the best gelato I've had since visiting Italy years ago. They make all their gelato in-house (only place in the city that does) and its spectacular. They also have gluten free cones for anyone that needs them like me! This is your place...More

I search Yelp for a place that made gelato and nothing else. What a terrific find! They make their gelato's from scratch and will serve you as many sample tastes as you wish. The lady working behind the counter was happy to help us.

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.
