Not family friendly

On June 16, 2009 my husband, 12 year old son and my 71/2 month old were sitting outside the Divino Gelatos Cafe.

My 12 year old was enjoying an ice cream cone that the had purchased across the street at Amy Lynn's chocolate place. An employee from Divino Gelatos arrive at the location and before entering the cafe he asked my family to leave informing them that the sitting was for customers only. My family was shock and of course left, what this employee did not know is that my son loves their chocolate cover macaroons and he was going to be purchasing some for the way home. Regardless of weather they were customers or not the employees actions were rude and very unfriendly. Our major is always asking us to enjoy the bussinees in downtown Waukesha but with that attitude I guess we have to be careful where we spend our money. My family and I will no longer be visiting Divino Gelatos and we will make sure that our family, friends and co-workers know about our experience. There is a lot of sitting areas through downtown Waukesha. We always enjoy going to the different stores and getting our favorite treat and finding a common place to enjoy them. Divino Gelato is out of our list for ever no matter how good their macarrons are!

I love the atmosphere and attention to detail

From the neat tables with pictures of Italy to the most authentic and delicious Gelato to the freidnliest staff and owners. With extremely loyal customers who will not settle for 2nd. best, this is what makes Divino the only place to go for authentic yummy Gelato.

Best Gelato, Great Customer Service and Authentic Italian Environment

I have been going to Divino for the last three years and it only keeps getting better and better. Now there are 36 flavors to choose from with 12 fruit flavors offered everyday. They have a freindly, knowledgeable and customer oriented staff, the friendliest owners. I have tried some of the new Gelaterias in the area and found that none of them offer anything close to Divino. Not only the great Gelato but a total Italian experience, even the tables are real pictures from Italy. I understand Divino now has a 2nd. location in Pewaukee.

Divino changes

I have notice a vast change in the overall atmosphere at Divino since the change in ownership. My friends and I used to stop to get gelato all the time, but lately it just hasn't been the same. It seems like the gelato itself is different. Plus, my favorite flavor was always raspberry, but they almost never have fruit flavors anymore. The friendly atmosphere that we used to love so much has also disappeared!! I guess the question that pops into my head is, why so many changes to a place that was so perfect??? It seems like Divino has become just another place for ice cream!!

I have had a taste for Gelato ever since a good friend was talking about it after they tried it in Las Vegas. My friend set out to find a place for me in the Milwaukee area. After a nice dinner at an Italian restaurant, we came to Divino Gelato Café to find the most helpful servers and friendly owners. I will be back to sample even more.

Every time I come to Divino, which is at least three times per month, I get one scoop of mint chocolate and also try something new. I never eat custard or regular ice cream anymore; instead I come for Gelato when I want a treat. The flavors at Divino are unlike any you will find in the world.

-- Justin - Shorewood, WI



I enjoy Divino Gelato Café, as it is rich in the European culture. The décor, the music, special flavors of the Italian ice cream, create a sophisticated eating experience – right here in downtown Waukesha. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to expand their experiences.

Nothing tastes like Divino Gelato! We journeyed to New York City’s “Little Italy” and tested their Gelato only to find that theirs did not even come close to the Gelato right here in Waukesha.

As a native Italian, I have tried many different ice creams and I have found that Divino Gelato Café has the best Gelato in the United States. I enjoy it because they offer the atmosphere that is a great place for people of all ages. So if you find yourself on Main Street in Waukesha, stop into Divino Gelato and enjoy a healthy Italian treat that will satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth. GUSTATEVELO !

I love Gelato and Divino Gelato is by far better than any I have ever had.

My girlfreind and I live in Waukesha and seem to end up at Divino for an Italian Sandwich, an Espresso and a great Gelato every week, sometimes 2-3 times for the Gelato. I used to go to Madison and there was a gelateria there put nothing like we have here right downtown in Waukesha. It is quaint in Italian atmopsphere, you really could be in Italy.

YUMMY

I'm all about atmosphere, and this place has the cutest atmosphere! It's like stepping into a little Italian villiage! So adorable. My husband and I came here for a fun date night and he even loved the atmosphere. We both had sandwiches that were great. The gellato is fabulous. I especially loved, loved, loved the cake batter. I liked sitting outside in the warm summer air, but the inside is cozy too. This place is a must try. Warning though, once you try it you'll keep coming back! I take all my friends here now, it's a great place to hang out and talk.

DIVINO GELATO WAUKESHA, WI *BEST GELATO EVER!!!*

I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT DIVINO GELATO!!! I am lucky to make it to Waukesha, WI a couple of times a year to visit family and I always make sure to stop at Divino Gelato ( a few times) during my stay. The gelato is the best I have ever tasted. I highly recommend ""The Sampler"" which includes a small scoop of 5 different flavors. I think I have tried most of the flavors and I can't choose a favorite since they are all sooooo good. The coffee, pizza and sandwiches are also fabulous. Besides all of these great things, what really makes Divino Gelato a great place is the cool atmosphere and super friendly staff! So, next time your in Waukesha be sure to stop at Divino, I am sure it will become one of your favorite places too!

Best Gelato this side of the Atlantic!

Divino Gelato creates the best gelato I've ever tasted! They have a wide selection of decadent flavors to suit every taste. The sandwiches are delicious too, so you can really a make a meal out of going there. And it's a fun, family-friendly atmosphere. Our son and nieces had a blast on our visit there. If you want great gelato, no need to travel to Italy...just go to Waukesha!

Best Gelato my wife and I have ever had. We discovered Divino Gelato about 1-1/2 months ago and have been here six times and each visit we bring friends who have never had Gelato.
