Just the traditional look of the place is amazing, it has character and the huge selection of Ice creams is overwhelming.I come here nearly every night when I am in triteste and the atmosphere is great as well, It's a great place to socialize, not to mention the extremely cheap prices

I came here I don't remember ho manyu times - sometimes two a week- for ice-cream, even in autumn/quite winter. It is simply the best ice cream in Trieste and also one of the best I have tasted. A huge variety of different flavours, all good. To be tried.

Lots of superb flavours...difficult to choose. Personally, my favourites are millefoglie, chestnut spumone in autumn and pinolata. Chocolate berlina with cream topping is also a must. Never found a place alike in the world.

historic gelateria, small, delicious, beautifully re-furbished, a classic for all trustiness who call it "Zampega" (it is situated in via Gheha, hence the mash-up between Zampolli and via Ghega), vast array of tastes to be eaten either seated or on the go. No parking space - a person goes in and buys the ice-cream, the other waits in the car... More

All Icecream is home made from bio-milk and fresh fruits or aromas. Open till late 12:00 PM since it is so succesfull. Great place to buy Ice-cream as a present for your hosts! Great Ice-cream Cakes too!

Nice place, a little far away from the center in the direction of the railway station. Many varieties of gelato including very exotic ones. We tried the Marsala one and that was delicious!
