Traditional Italian ice-cream. They regularly invent new flavours, but also put effort in the more traditional flavours.

You've not been to Haarlem if you haven't had ice cream here. True Italian gelato that people line up for. Seriously, there's a huge line all the way outside in spring and summer.

While passing through, we stopped at Garrone for ice creams and were not disappointed. We had not been in shop for over 20 years and the ice creams were still tasty and of good quality compared to years back, lovely!

As a big fan of Italy/Italian ice-creams, I can say that the ice-creams really do taste like in Italy, and that's pretty hard to find in the Netherlands.

If you want to experience a real ice-cream in Haarlem - head to Garrone. Its not a sugar overdose feeling you get having a regular ice-cream but an explosion of real taste. And interesting unique flavors, I am a big fan of violet flavor :P

Went here due to another Tripadviser review - mistake. The Ladies serving were not pleasant and weren't very sympathetic with our allergy query. We bought two 3 scoop cones and a (supposedly) 3 scoop tub. Do not get the tub as it is more expensive...More
