Unique ice cream! So worth a visit I have never seen anything like it. Not a place to go if you want to dictate exactly what you want as they serve it how they want to, but super unique and yummy.

You don't go to Giapo for a simple scoop of ice cream. You go to wait in line with anticipation (worth it), you go to be treated like a first class passenger, you go to sample all the flavors, you go to get an artful creation of delicious proportions. A must eat!

Great ice cream. Works of art. And very good customer service. They take their time with you, once you get through the long line, and let you try lots of flavors.

Interesting and fun flavors. Creative approach. Gelato can be served on various desserts and toppings are unique. I had avocado gelato with white chocolate and chocolate covered macadamia nuts. This a a very rich treat!

the specialty cones are works of art and priced accordingly. ice cream was nice and creamy with flavors of the day, exclusive of what this usa person thinks of a regular. no vanilla, chocolate, chocolate chip, etc. one, two scoop specialty cone was $25.

Giapo simply does the best Gelato in the world. He is an artist who uses the very best ingredients to produce art pieces. If there was a Michelin star for ice cream he would be starred.

a very unique ice cream place but slightly on the pricey side. the bovelty does subside once you've tried it. Note: really depends on the preference of the individual... you either like it or you don't
