The gelato at Ciao in Coupeville is just about as authentic as gelato gets on Whidbey. Ciao sources their gelato from Gelatimo in Seattle where they use a recipe from the 1700s that’s been passed on from one gelato master to another. At Ciao you can enjoy fresh gelato in a variety of flavors (including seasonal flavors) as well as affogato, but gelato is not all they serve here—find pizza, pastas, sandwiches, and more on the menu, too.
