This candy-colored North Beach shop is a popular follow-up to a pie at Tony's Pizza Napoletana around the corner. (Facing hour-plus wait times, some break down and make Naia gelato an appetizer.) The brand's co-founders, Trevor Morris and Chris Tan, learned to make gelato the old-school way, from Italian master artisans. They still make everything by hand in small batches, both to ensure freshness and to give themselves the chance to experiment with wacky flavors like cannoli, Bosc pear, Zabaione and rose. In particular, the pair is fond of collaborating with local distilleries and breweries to create boozy flavors like St. George absinthe and 21st Amendment beer.
