Every time we would visit vieux Lyon we would likely eat an ice cream at René Nardone. For a take away you may have to queue for a bit but it is worth it. If you want to eat it there and then and sit...More

Excellent find with some locals, who swear by this place as serving the best ice cream in town. I wasn't disappointed. My caramelised pecan but ice cream was awesome. Good place to pick up ice cream from as you start to explore Vieux Lyon.

Wot it says. We came here twice during our week stay and afterwards ranked Nardone ice cream just as good as the more trendy bio-champion Terres Adelice. Our fave flovour at Narone was the salted caramel. The staff we met were bilingual and patient. We...More
