Il Gelato is a casual beachside eatery just paces from the beach and a short walk from the Newport Beach pier. Despite the name, it also offers a full menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner items, in addition to a wonderful selection of pastries, sweets, and, of course, gelato. There is even have a selection of wine and beer (in addition to non-alcoholic beverages) and tea, coffee and hot & cold espresso drinks to go along with its paninis, subs, pastas and salads. Menu items are available for take-out or eat-in. Of course the gelato, displayed front and center just inside the door, is delicious and the selection of flavors is pretty extensive for a boardwalk shop. It is open daily, year-round.
