Going here ruined the pleasant evening on the promenade. I did not like the first sample because it had a bad aftertaste. I browsed another group of flavors. They would not help me for over 5 minutes, even though no one was there. I asked for the second sample of a sorbet. (The signs says you can try three samples) The Guy would not let me try it unless I paid first. And he threw a lot of condescending attitude at me. These people working here are mean. Its like something out of Seinfeld---Ice Cream Nazi's. Except you won't find it funny. I won't go back here.

Pros: nothing

Cons: Bad Attitude from staff, Terrible after taste

This gelato restaurant has an incredible selection and tastes really good. They have incentives for repeat customers and once you go there, you'll quickly become one. I wish they had more places to sit, but it's worth visiting.

The gelato is terrific, but the customer service isn't so great. Still, if you have a sweet tooth, it's worth checking out.

Famous for the 100 flavors of gelato (low fat Italian ice cream) served here. Walk inside on a hot afternoon to grab a light lunch??some tofulati, panini sandwitches, salad and soup would make you feel energetic without feeling heavy. Then grab a gelato to cool you off. Delicioso!

DO NOT RUIN YOUR FUN TIME ON THE PROMENADE BY VISITING THIS ESTABLISHMENT!!! The service is horrendous, even the managers don't know how to put on a smile!!! Yes, the flavors are good, but I have yet to experience a welcoming staff or even a helpful for that matter. Ask an employee how many flavors they have [it's posted on the wall.] I think one girl's last head was about to explode with that question. She stared at me dumbfounded and then shrugged and walked away. THERE WERE NO OTHER CUSTOMERS IN THE PLACE!!! If you care about good service and good times please do not waste your time and money at this place. DO NOT RUIN YOUR TIME ON THE PROMENADE BY VISITING THIS ANGELATO'S!!! Although not as refreshing, Yummy Cupcakes on Wilshire knows how to provide customer service and will certainly satisfy any sweet tooth. A friend visitng me from out of town was screamed at for opening Angelato's unlocked doors 10 minutes before they opened. They then locked the doors for another 15 minutes, deciding not to open on time. I shrugged off my first few lackluster experience to employees just having a long or rough day. But no, they are always pathetically ill-equipped to run a store. How such miserable people can bring so much unhappiness to such a happy place is beyond me. If you do dare to experience their horrendous service please try to get one employee to render a smile, it may just make your ice cream taste better.

The warehouse for gelato! I especially love their raspberry white chocolate and their hazelnut flavors~ Gelatos' always kind of expensive, but even a small size will fill me up.

It's cash only, but the prices are reasonable. They really do have 100 different flavors, though I feel their best ones are their most simple. I loved the chocolate hazlenut. I haven't tried gelatto on a cone (it just seems wrong or inauthentic?) but I'll give it a whirl one of these days.

There are over 100 varieties to choose from for your gelato! It is a heaven for ice cream lovers; one actually end up what to get since there are too many choices to choose from. They restrict you to only three samples - even if you are buying more than 3 flavors... It is a fun treat and experience; but some workers over there have attitude problem - for the past three times I've been there. But it's worth a try if you are around the area.

I first walked into this gelato cafe because it had a sign outside that said over a hundred flavours. Naturally I had to see for myself. Wow...I was overwhelmed by the choices they had. The rainbow of colours, every and any kind of flavours and some combinations you've probably never thought of - you name it, they have it. It took me awhile before I decided to go with the Mango Coconut flavour. Very tasty! They also have sorbets and yogurts if you're not a gelato type of person. Perfect place to pop in on a shopping break.

I have been looking for a gelato store since coming back from the East coast! I finally found one in 3rd street. This gelato store has many many flavors and you can taste the free samples as well. I personally love the Almond Avalanche.

This is the best ice cream in Los Angeles. Actually, it's the best dessert place in the entire United States. The flavors are sensational and the environment is just lovely.

The food is excellent. Try the paninis and the different desserts. Of course, there's always the gelato, which is the best I've ever had. I've even been to Italy and the gelato doesn't there doesn't compare!

I can't believe how many flavors there are. My friends and I wanted to try something new and exotic. We had Pannacotta, Vanilla Strawberry Marble, Bacio Gelato, and Aloha Paradise! You won't see these flavors anywhere else! This cafe should be on the Food Network - it's cute, quick, clean, and romantic. It's also very affordable! No time to stop by? Ask someone to bring home a bucket of your favorite flavor. It's very convenient. I've already brought home a couple of buckets myself. But you should definitely visit for the ambience alone.

Why settle for 24 flavors when you can have over 100? Angelato has it all - gelato, sorbetto, tofulati, and yogurt! Hungry? Their panini sandwiches are superb! Want something even fancier? Try their novelties! This is the best place to go after a nice stroll around Santa Monica Beach. Thank God it's healthy...because it's super addicting!!!

First of all, the ambience is awesome! It looks like the cleanest, most funnest place in the world. Bring your kids! They'll love it! It's also a great place to bring a date since it's in the middle of 3rd Street Promenade. The service is excellent. The workers are so friendly and they really know their gelato. The cafe has over 100 flavors of gelato! I've been there almost every week for the past 6 months, and I've always tried a new flavor. All of them are absolutely amazing! The product is the epitome of gourmet food, so the price is a bargain. Forget about ice cream, it's all about the GELATO!

This place has the most choices of gelato I've seen in LA. They've got everything from the traditional vanilla, to the more interesting flavors - strawberry cheesecake, kiwi and lychee sorbet. One recommendation is to get the pint, which is $5.95 and allows you to get 4 different flavors in a larger cup. A much better deal since one scoop is $3.25.

On a whim we stopped into the Angelato cafe for some dessert and the place was packed. I headed for the sorbet and found it soooo good. The best I have ever had. I even went back a few days later and even though it was probably about 40 degrees out I still had the double mango/pink grapefruit sorbet. The staff even gave us samples of flavors. This place is somethign straight from dessrt heaven!

Best place to go when you just want a tasty treat with less than half the fat of regular ice cream. The Gelato is smooth and the service was great. They're patient with you as you try to decide which yummy item to pick. I'm from San Diego and would totally drive to LA for this.
