We stopped in for a break from the heat and to enjoy some gelato. The service is very friendly, the decor is "so cute" (a quote from my wife), and they have a lot of flavors to choose from. Can't pick one? Go with a two-flavor dish. You can sample the flavors before you make your choice, which may actually... More

Super cute little tea time decor, to have some Gelato and cool off from the heat in Cartagena. You can try the flavors free of charge and it's easy ok your pocket. Quality taste and nice little shop.

My husband and I wandered into this gelateria after hearing good things online. There were more than 20 flavors to choose from but the service attendant behind the counter was very annoyed when we asked to sample 2 flavors. In my opinion, it is completely reasonable to sample flavors, especially when there are exotic fruit flavors that one doesn't have... More

Cute little gelato place. Interesting and different flavors with local fruits - they will let you taste them first which is nice. . They are open late so we can have dessert after dinner. Warning... the dark chocolate is great but super rich.

There's definitely a fun variety of flavors here: maracuya, lulo, etc. However, the gelato doesn't have a great texture nor is it super flavorful in the way I'm used to gelato (from Italy, or even from chains in Mexico) tasting. Still, a fun place to recharge while walking through the super hot city of Cartagena. They have AC here, too!

Convenient location in the walled city. Not the friendliest service, but the ice cream is good and the interior is fun.

If you have a craving for ice cream, this place offers unique flavors, including local fruits like chivalry and guanabana. The place looks quaint, reminds me of a place that serves English tea!

We stopped by on a hot day as a party of 6. Let me start off by saying we LOVED the ice cream and we ordered 6 different flavors to cool us down and delight us. We had Salted Caramel, Coconut, Mango, Pistachio, Maracuya and Pasas al Ron (like rum ice cream). You cant go wrong with any of those... More

Good enough icecream, not great! Tramonti gelato is much better! The chocolate has not a strong flavor as I would expect and the prices are too high!

We found this place thanks to the suggestion of our waiter at Totopo (which is the subject of another review). Paradiso has nearly 20 types of ice cream beautifully displayed in a beautifully decorated store. I tried the dark chocolate all four times that I was there and, believe me, there is a reason for that consistency:) They also have... More
