This Gelataria is located in the main piazza about 20 metres away from another excellent Gelataria called Dondoli which has actually won the World's best gelato title twice, although the last time was in 2009. We have eaten a number of flavours from both of...More

Pricey, but delicious ice cream! Wide range of flavors and menu items to suit any palate. Definitely worth it to stop for a coffee or an ice cream. Located in the cute town square.

Piazza Cisterna is lucky enough to be blessed with two out of this world gelato outlets. It's like Ali v Frazier every day, with the two best heavyweights going toe to toe. Superb gelato. You will not be disappointed!

On the terrace, in the corner, we had some shade. We ordered a very nice caffe freddo and some cantucci cookies. Nice drink and not to expensive. You can watch people passing by (busses and busses full are dropped here).

We assume that restaurants in the prime tourist areas will be expensive but this one was not. A large delicious sandwich on a big crusty bun, with lots of meat, was Euro 5, excellent value. Granted a Moretti beer was the same price and that...More
