Gelato is the dessert of choice in Italy. It's everywhere, so when you find one that is especially creamy and delicious, it's worth noting. La Fabbrica del Gelato in Lenno is just such a place. The shop is light and clean, and there are many flavors to choose from. Cup or cone, with inexpensive prices too. And they have an... More

This place makes a great range of gelato, granita and ice lollies. The blood orange and the chocolate gelato were especially good. Some of the flavours didn't quite come through and for this reason I rate them a 4 instead of 5. They are in a great spot next the lake, and there are benches for you to sit and... More
