Delicious, this is ice cream at its best. Don't forget to look at the specials. I had one of them with ricotta which made me jump through the roof. Go and eat your gelato around the corner at the racing track!

Last year while strolling through the town after dinner one of our friends suggested that we stop for a gelato on our way back to the hotel. As opposed to the typical fruit flavoured gelato I was recommended to try marscapone with fig sauce. Let me tell you that it was the best, most incredible combination of flavours that I've... More

Really excellent! There is little surprise in seeing people queuing in this tiny place in central Forte to savor the best ice cream in town. The ladies at the counter ar quick, smiling, and the ice cream simply fabulous. You can' complain about waiting, here, it's part of the game. Recommended!!

They produce their own ice cream. I like the liquiriza ice cream but they don't have a particularly extensive selection of fruit based sorbets, which I like. Nonetheless, the wife thinks it is the best place in town. It is a very small place but there is some seating outside

The best ice cream I had in Italy. At about €3 for a generous 3 scoop cone, you can't complain- especially when the ice cream is flawless. If you come across cinnamon flavour, it's totally worth a try as it is delicious! Fruits of the Forrest is also very good. The ladies are more than happy to let you sample... More

We called here 2 or 3 times during our 10 day stay in Forte Dei Marmi and strolled back to our hotel whilst sampling the best Italian ice-cream we have eaten since our trip last year to Rome!

Very yummy gelato with pure wholesome ingredients. Dark chocolate lovers, this is the place. Go as soon as they open if you can get there in the morning. Better than breakfast in bed.
