They don't need or endorsement, the line out the door says it all. They move quick so don't want off to some second rate gelato shop, you'll be glad you edited for the best.

You need a good ice cream after the steps, and this place gives it. Great selection of ice creams, including the unusual and refreshing basilico. Highly recommend.

The "Granita al Limone" at Alberto Gelateria tastes amazing. Made from fresh lemons in their own shop. Fair prices for the 5 Terre.

Great gelato place that you really can't miss. The town is very tiny, and this is right on the main little path. It also has tons of signs in front to make sure you have the right place. As for the gelato itself, like I found with most gelato in Italy, the fruit flavors are the best. In this case... More

We had just done the big hike from Manarola and we were on the lookout for our daily gelato fix. We were a bit perplexed to find 3 shops within a very short proximity to one another. I went into all 3 but chose Alberto's. I got pistachio and it was hands down the best gelato I have ever had.... More

Very much enjoyed our short time in Corniglia while in Cinque Terre this fall. This place had excellent gelato to cool you down after walking so many hills!
