Cute little sorbet/gelato place located in Poipu shopping village. The wife wanted gelato after dinner, and she got two scoops for $6.50 in a small sugar cone. I tried one scoop in a cup/

She said the flavors were good, so she liked it. But she said it was good but the gelato seems a bit thin, not so creamy. I got the chocolate and I agree.

Service was patient.

I can't eat dairy, and was thrilled to read about all their dairy free options. My husband and I tried a couple of flavors each, and were kind of disappointed. I don't understand why everyone raves about this place, as i have found much tastier frozen treats for a tiny fraction of the price.

After eating dinner, we walked all around the center. We settled on Gelato. Wow! We didn't "settle" at all. What great dessert!

Quick, friendly service while getting a peanut butter cup gelato in Poipu. Good after dinner snack. Only complaint was that the prices seemed quite a lot since I had 2 scoops in Waikiki for near the same price and in Italy with exchange it is a little less with one scoop. Otherwise, good variety of flavours in the display case. There are also gelato ice cream sandwiches and gelato shakes.

Walking around shopping, we needed a little snack. We decided on Gelatto. I haven't had any as good since we were in Italy!
