At GIO Gelati, traditional Italian recipes meet impeccable California ingredients for authentic, silky smooth gelato that will dance with your palate.
GIO stands for “Gelato Italiano Originale” and that’s just what we serve -- each flavor we craft is made in-house from scratch with all-natural, farm-fresh ingredients and a passion for perfection.
You'll choose from our classic and seasonal flavors with plenty of dairy-free and vegan options for everyone to enjoy. Stop by and explore a mouth-watering new flavor, or unwind and enjoy an Italian breakfast with an aromatic espresso. No matter when you come by, we invite you to slow down for a while and savor our flavorful gelati while exploring Cow Hollow, our charming little scoop of San Francisco, or our most recent addition in San Ramon at City Center Bishop Ranch.
