Great Ice Cream, with quality ingredients and some highlights like the cassata or the perum (pear, chocolate and rhum), I definitely advise to stop here if you are in the neighborhood!

San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo may look all street with its pulse in
urban art and street food, but don’t be fooled. This
