Such fantastic food!!!!! The cheese ravioli is incredible, and we loved the meatballs, too - they are the size of a fist! The bread that comes with dinner is some of the best we have ever had at a meal. Everything is great - highly recommended. Our server was very accommodating.

I love this place! My roommates in college introduced me to this place 10 years ago. They had spent the summer in Italy and swore up and down it was the best gelato in LA. 10 years later, I'm still on the Westside...and I still love Al Gelato. I always spend a long time in front of the case trying to decide. Today, the pumpkin gelato was my pick. They only have it during the fall and its basically pumpkin pie on a cone (or in a cup). Light, creamy, speckled with pumpkin pie spices...it basically made my Saturday afternoon. My boyfriend had the coffee crunch...and basically polished it off before we made it back across the street to the car. LOVE IT!

I stopped in to kill some time and ordered the lentil soup. I got a small and the portion was HUGE and the soup was fantastic. The employees were kind and helpful (I'm new in town) and the coconut gelato is really good- there are toasted coconut bits in it!
I will be back for sure, I'm dying to check out other flavors of gelato!

Being from Italy, my expectation towards quality Gelato are high. It was impossible for me to find truly good gelato in LA until a friend recommended ""Al Gelato"".
The owner who obviously takes great pride in his work, delivers consistently wonderful flavors and textures.
This is how Gelato is supposed to taste!

This place has simply the best Italian food that I've ever had. The quality is exceptional and you feel like you're having home made dishes and desserts. The portions are so big that you can feed a couple of people easily! I highly recommend this place to anyone who has a passion for Italian food.
And don't forget to try the one of a kind gelatos!

we live close by and get gelato here all the time... sooooo yummy. so we decided to sit in for dinner one night and ordered up some of the best sounding and worst tasting pizza ive ever had. the crust tasted like smoke. the sauce was just... sour. i couldnt finish. the moral of the story is, have dinner somewhere else and come here for desert.

As a patron of Al Gelato for 10 years now, most recently I was dissapointed with a drop in integrity. When requesting more bread, I was informed there will be an extra charge. Sorry, that is nonsense. A staple of italian dining is the bread to sop sauce. I have never been in an italian restaurant that charged me for bread. Very sad about that Al. Snap out of it. If I am going to spend 40 some-odd dollars for dinner with a guest, do not charge for the bread. Shame on you to take advantage in these tight times.

I found this place because a friend swore by it.
The food is reasonable, delicious, and the staff are great.
Make sure you bring cash - only form of payment accepted.
And know up front it's not a flashy restaurant - very casual - but the food is seriously the best Italian I've had outside of Italy.
