I always drop in to this iconic gelateria when visiting Bologna. Situated in Piazza Cavour, the place is brightly with a modern yet classic look right in the center of town. The gelato is prepared with a several step process that produces a silky smooth product. While the pistachio is my favorite the Alice packs a chocolate surprise. Once you... More

Absolutely the best gelato in the world! When I'm in Italy I eat gelato once or twice a day, when I'm back home in Canada I have ice cream one or twice a year. I have had gelato in at least 40-50 different gelateria's, this is is my favourite.

Busy shop on the main strip. Fairly typical commercial gelato. The staff were run off their feet but delightful

It's Italy...there's gelato. This is different. Theirs is a rich, decadent delight. Just a block south of San Petronia Bascilica is the best I've had in Italy. Enjoy it seated the small park across the street, Piazza Cavour.

This gelato is out of this world. We stopped there for an afternoon treat and we're lucky enough to not have a long queue (they are apparently inevitable and one has started forming as soon as we stood in the short line, which became quite long after a few minutes). The menu varies on a daily basis and there are... More

This gelaterias was recommended to us, and we went out of our way to find it. Terrific selection of fresh gelato, nicely presented. My favorite, hazelnut (nocciolo) was excellent. Unfortunately there is no place to sit, but there is space to stand. There is a nice park outside, with plenty of benches on which to sit, which would be a... More

Excellent ice-cream with a pleasant setting: there is a nice open air area with benches where you can enjoy your gelato. All flavours are great, but my favorite is the cremino!

This Gelateria was so good that we had it twice in one day! We found it via a travel food guide, reinforced by positive reviews on Tripadvisor, and so decided to come here. We tried the Leonardo (the pine nut in-house flavour) and the pistachio, and both were sublime. I particularly love the creamy, buttery texture of the pistachio. Although... More
