Delicious gelato! We had the lemon & mint and the triple berry. Both were fabulous, they even offered my three year old a small portion which he simply loved!

This was our 3rd trip to Dolce & Gelato and they've lost our business. We live in downtown Pensacola and sorely need a family friendly place for ice cream; D&G is not that. The first 2 trips were with just my husband after dinner and...More

I am sorry that happened. We do, in fact, give samples. I am not sure why your son didn't have one; we give two samples per customer. It even says do on our sign.

This is gelato (not ice cream) and it is wonderful. Interesting kitsch on the walls. Nice stop while walking around Historic Pensacola district. Have been here before and was glad we returned.

We had an hour to kill while waiting for our tour of the Historic Village so decided to stop here for a bite to eat. Best decision ever! My husband and I shared a chicken quesadilla (large enough for 2) and took about 50 pictures...More

We're sitting here eating our gelato on the porch now. I got the goat cheese, raspberry, and rosemary and my wife got the Chirv. Perfect dessert at the Pensacola Seafood Festival. The lady and gentleman working were very friendly. We will come back.

Thank you for coming by and enjoying our gelato. Our Bushwhacker is a pretty popular flavor, happy you liked it! Gary is always helpful with customers, he's kind of the beating heart of my little shop. Please stop in again.

Quirky coffee shop with interesting house made gelato and super friendly staff. We spent a relaxing hour sitting outside enjoying a latte and the pineapple mango and vanilla bean gelato. There's a great selection of original flavors that are sure to please the palate. One...More

Thanks! Gary, our wonderful manager and all around shop super hero, is a treasure for the shop. Our customers are always happy with his warm, smiling service. He also makes a mean quesadilla. We hope you can stop in again sometime.

Where else can you sit in kiss-shaped stools and gaze at Christopher Walken while savoring awesome gelato? A must-see spot with tables indoors and out. Steps away from historic downtown Pensacola home tours and museums. A welcoming, fun, friendly atmosphere.

So happy that you liked your visit to us. We really are in a great spot in downtown Pensacola, and try to fit into the historic vibe with our eclectic shop. Come see us again.
