Tutto Amore

This gelato parlor opened last summer (2007)and has been growing in popularity with the locals and tourist since then. With plasma screen menus, and motion censored trashcans, it’s the ice cream store of the TRUE 21st century!

The place came to Laguna after reaching its peak level in popularity all throughout Europe. With business booming across the Atlantic, the company decided to expand their arms over to the eager Americans. So the company sent brother and sister, Mercello and Melinda, over to San Fransisco to try and set up a store. When they noticed that people in  Southern California seem to know about gelato and are more eager to get their hands on it, they closed the shop and zoomed down here with their new friend, Timothy Lin. Then they set up shop in  a  closed Baskin Robbins after a total remodel was completed. They put up plasma screen TVs as the menus, motion censor trashcans, super fancy espresso machine, acrylic chairs and tables, and there famous glass fish tip jar which changed the feel in a positive way.  At the beginning of 2008 a mini art gallery was set up to try and add a more artistic flare to the high tech gelato parlor. The prices for the paintings don’t ever drop below fifteen hundred dollars! I find this kind of scary. I mean what if you accidentally bump into one and it shatters on the ground? (they’re normally ceramic canvases) That would just ruin your day.

On my first visit last summer I decided not to get anything normal, so I got the small (two descent scoops) of Flaun and Cream Milk gelato. After this encounter I learned that the flaun was by far the new best flavor that their selection provided. The funny thing I found out was that it is the least picked flavor because of the name and its randomness .Also because the flavor sits furthest away from the door. Now-a-days I seem to always get flaun because it’s the least tasted out of all the flavors. Most tourist and locals seem not to be open to any new experiences. Some of the other flavors I enjoy are Italian coffee, any of the fruit flavors, and basically all the flavors but steer clear of watermelon.

Tutto Amore serves more than just gelato, it dishes out glass bottled Coca Cola, amazing espresso, and a few other extremely refreshing foods.

Tutto Amore has an arch nemesis, Gelato Paradiso. Gelato Paradiso wins the award for a rustic feel because of the location not from the boring interior design. But in every other comparison i would name Tutto Amore to be the number one gelato place not only in Laguna Beach but all throughout Orange county.

With the SciFi aroma surrounding the shop, the expectations for gelato grew quite rapidly, but in the end my pitiful requirements were thrown out the window with amazing the taste and service.
