my first visit was this past september when it was much more humid. I enjoyed the gelato and three cups of espresso back then and made it a point to return. here I am enjoying two cups of coffee and more italian ice cream. the owner is super friendly and very accommodating. the coffee is freshly brewed each order.

We stop at Stefano's gelateria every time were on Isla (actually multiple times during our trips). He is very friendly and his prices are incredibly reasonable. I think we paid like 5 or 6 USD for 3 scoops of gelato and a cappuccino. He is from Italy so he knows what he is doing and everything is amazing! My fiancé... More

We stopped here several times during our trip for a very refreshing treat. The gentleman was so nice and let us sample to decide what we wanted.

Our daughter lives on Isla Mujeres. When we visit, we always come her. Great gelato that's made on the premises. I've never been disappointed . Tiny shop, but pleasant. Owner is from Italy, a real gentleman. Nothing else comes close on this island when it comes to ice cream or gelato.

Accidentally stumbled upon this place after a very lackluster meal on Hidalgo. Thank goodness because the incredible flavor of this gelato really saved the day. The owner was wonderful about explaining about flavors like stracciatella and bacci, and I settled on coffee and bacci (a chocolate hazelnut flavor) which he put in a crispy fresh cone, all for just 35...

Stopped there after breakfast on a warm day to experience his ice cream. We requested a cone which was of good quality and fresh. The ice cream was smooth and tasty. The place could use a little brightening up as it lacks a bit of atmosphere. You are not able to see the ice cream as you are in other... More

Family owned and operated with multiple flavor offerings everyday! Once we found this place (it's on a little side street) we came back THREE TIMES for more! A medium sized bowl of gelato, 2 flavors, was 55 pesos. There were a few other homemade desserts to try, although we stuck with gelato due to the heat! Coconut was amazing! Definitely... More
