Gelato Paradiso is a fun place to take a break from a day of pricy shopping at the nearby Fashion Island. The store itself is located in the Corona Del Mar Plaza.
The gelato spread is pretty fancy--fruits and other decorative pieces garnish the display and they have fancy gelato cakes that you can special order. With upwards of 20 flavors, and number shakes and other gelato creations available for your consumption, you're sure to find something to please everyone.
But, like the ritzy stores that surround it, Gelato Paradiso is pricy. And if the gelato was THAT good, I'd look past the inflated price tag--but I've had better gelato elsewhere. Gelato Paradiso is good, very good, but failed to impress me as much as I thought it would. Also, the intimate setting of the store also means that it can get crowded quickly if a bunch of people decide to come in at once, which I've seen happen on more than one occasion.
