We love this place, and look forward to coming here anytime we're near Laguna Beach. The gelato is seriously delicious, the service is fast and friendly, and the location is great.

Great little gelato place up a little laneway next to Watermarc. There is always a queue however it moves pretty fast and the wait is worth it - the choice of flavours are mouth-watering! Wonderful on a warm day!

We have spent a week in Newport Beach each of the past three summers and hit Gelato Paradiso at least twice per trip. There will most certainly be a line, but don't worry, it moves fast and it's worth the wait!

I got the peanut butter/choc and chocolate chip and they put it in a to-go cup and I ate it on my way home from the beach. It was $9 and I would go there again.
