I'm pretty sure this is a local business, because they only have 3 stores and they're within decent driving distance of each other. Well, I went to the Hollywood shop and it was a bit small but the air conditioning was very welcome that day, seeing as how it was super hot. So yeah, my friends and I ordered some gelato, and it was ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS. THey had awesome flavors - I chose the tiramisu, and it was SO good! My friend's mom got half chocoloate, half coconut and she couldn't stop raving about how good it was. The prices are a bit stepp for the product, but in general it's afforadable and definitely worth it. Gelato is so great, and Gelato Paradiso really captures its "awesomeness".
