Good ice cream but staff were very rude! I asked for cold water but they gave me hot water instead. When i said that this is not what I wanted both of the ladies working there were EXTREMELY RUDE about the whole situatio.

Small gelato shop infront of Park Hyatt. Good selection. The shop is somewhat artsy and cozy. They also serve burgers and pizza.

Was there 3 days and went 3 days in a row! I can't have dairy and appreciated how they always had 3-4 flavors each day (there was some change, which was nice) for me to choose from.

The ice cream is exactly like the kind in Italy and Paolo, the owner is a genuinely nice guy. You can sample the flavors before buying you scoops to see if you like it or not. Would definitely recommend and also go there again myself.
