Luigi was born in a little town located in the mountains east of Naples, Italy. When he was just a young child his family moved to San Diego to live the American Dream. Luigi has always been a lover of all things sweet and tasty, so why not impart a little bit of his love of “gelato” and “sorbetto” to his friends and neighbors in Pacific Beach.
Luigi’s Gelateria makes all their frozen desserts on-site and with the highest quality of ingredients. Living in California we are blessed to be able to get a variety of fresh fruits and nuts grown here in our “Golden State.” We offer the traditional gelato flavors such as Pistachio, utilizing Northern California nut farms. One tempting spoonful will make you feel like your last relaxing trip to Italy, but instead of looking at the Trevi Fountain you can stroll down to crystal pier and watch the surfers catch a wave and the sea breeze blow your troubles away.
We also offer the traditional American flavors like Oreo. There is No skimping on ingredients either. There’s a reason why “Oreos” are the king of cookies and you better get a bite of that piece of heaven with every spoonful. If you are feeling adventurous we recommend some of our signature flavors you won’t find just anywhere. May I suggest a bite of our “Apple Pie” ice cream. You’ll have to look twice to make sure your still eating ice cream.
if fresh fruit is your thing, may I recommend some of our Sorbettos. Our Mango has a great refreshing flavor, with chunks of fruit throughout. Lemon is also one of the most popular flavors in Italy. Once again California comes thru with some of the best citrus in the world. (Sorry Florida, but it is true.)
Here at Luigi’s we want you to love the flavor you pick. We try to carry a large variety of flavors and hope you can find something that you will adore. But we also want you to tell us what flavor we are missing. We will see if we can fill the bill on that too. Chances are if you are missing it, you are not alone. Be sure to visit us often as we are always introducing new and interesting flavors for you to fall in love with. In the near future we will be offering the “paisano” loyalty program. We love San Diego and all the people that make it the unique and happy place it has always been for us. Whether you’re here for the sun, the surf, or life, we want to say “Ciao” and welcome you to Luigi’s Gelateria of Pacific Beach.
