How can you go wrong? Crepes, berries, bananas, nutella, chocolate, nuts, cream cheese, custard, ice cream, holy cow! The combinations are mind boggling! They are sooo nice too!
Cute shop, nice staff, GREAT gelato! Try the pistachio...yum! There was a crowd but the young ladies behind the counter were professional, patient and smiling/chatting with the customers. Most people were sampling before buying. It was like a big gelato party! A fun memory of our visit to Charleston.
paolos gelato is always excellent. "substandard"? compared to what? paolo's is definitely better than modica was, and if you need proof, ask yourself which one is still open for business.
paolo is always very personable, as is the staff, and i appreciate that he puts out adventurous flavors. avocado is one of the best gelato flavors i've ever had.
Tellitlikeitisliz seriously needs to relax. My husband and I have been going to Paolo's for years, and we always leave satisfied. Customer service has NEVER been a problem. The girls there are absolute sweethearts... The fun thing about going to Paolo's is that you're always in for a surprise/something new. I guess it's an adventure that you weren't quite ready for Liz. Next time you should just go to Ben & Jerry's. Their ice cream is made in factories, filled with preservatives and high fructose corn syrup, and shipped half way across the country.
In response to TellItLikeItIsLiz. Paolo´s makes great gelato, but they make it quite clear that you are limited to 1 sample. Most food and beverage places do NOT let people sample anything on the menu. Why would you possibly need to sample every flavor of gelato before getting a cup. Furthermore, if you get a cup, then you can put 4 different flavors in it. With 2 people and 2 cups that´s all of Paolo´s selection in the case. Also, they don´t sell the same flavors every night so you just need to relax a little bit and enjoy a gelato.
I was looking forward to going to Paolo's after hearing so much about it. When my Fiance and I arrived, we waited in line patiently behind about 6 other people. When it was our turn to order, I told the female employee that I would like to try all six flavors. She stated she would not let me try all six. I then requested each flavor one at a time. She put two flavors of Gelato on one tasting spoon for my Fiance and I to share. I ended up purchasing some Gelato, but I wish I didn't. The customer service there was outrageous. The employee was nasty and mean. The Gelato was great, but I wish I would have spent my money elsewhere after the way we were treated. Paolo, you make great Gelato, but you should rethink who you hire to represent your business.
In a word, Paolo's Gelato is substandard. How I long for the days when Charleston's Best Gelato could be found in a small, unassuming shop on George Street...
My son and I just discovered Paolo's last week and it's now on our favorites list for downtown. In addition to gelato, they have the BEST cannoli ever!
awesome gelato! the real deal is here. the flavors are made on premises everyday and the owner is a real Italian from Venice.
I stopped to use the ATM machine and they wouldn't let me unless i purchased something. They need to take down the ATM sign. I won't go back.
I had a banana-nutella crepe and then later a chicken crepe. Both were delicious. If you're out on Folly and want a quick and tasty meal, then stop by Tokyo Crepes.
These days it's hard to get people to agree on things. Some people like wearing shorts all the time, but other people think you always have to dress up nice. Some people like movies with cartoons in them, but other people only like watching real people. How do you find a middle ground? You don't. It's impossible. But, there's one thing I've found where I think we can all agree: food. People like food.
Now before you argue against my statement, think about it for a second. Everyone I've ever talked to likes food. My mother likes food. My brother likes food. My stepdad likes food even more than my mom. The president likes food, too, probably. I've never eaten with him, but I can picture him sitting at a table eating a big bowl of macaroni and cheese right now. Homeless people ask me for money all the time just so they can buy food. It seems to me that food's pretty popular.
And, when you really think about it, there's a lot to like about food. It tastes good and it's good to eat. That's all I can think of for now, but those two things alone make me like food. Furthermore, I just thought of something else: Food is probably the healthiest and best thing to put in your mouth. You can ask a doctor about that.
And, so, thus, eat at this delicious crepe truck.
Have new owners taken over the restuarant? Today we paid $4.29 for a BBQ, one third of the meat we have always gotten
prior to now. Asked if they downsized the portion of meat waitress replied "that is how much I was told to put on a bun" We have always gotten our money's worth there, I doubt
we will go back again. Very dissapointed I supposed the
great hamburgers you used to have have now gone to a much
smaller size also.
