Lovely flavours. I’m told they make different ices depending on the fruit of the season. Good choice and lovely creamy ices. Reasonable prices, too.

Been here a couple times during past week when it's been exceptionally hot and humid. Some days the icy slushy was chilled to perfection, but it wasn't consistent. Good service, reasonable pricing.

Best Gelato in Italy, we had the chance to go their shop in charming Lenno, and also they had their wonderful Gelato cart in our wedding. Very friendly people as well, ask for Luca.
