We have been in Italy a month eating gelato all over the country and Di Silivio has the best chocolate (fondante) of any we have tried. Big portions and reasonable prices too.

Di Silvio is a cut above the rest. The walls are adorned with awards. Unfortunately we only went once, shared four flavors, and every one was rich and spectacularly-flavored. Do not hesitate to go here.

I think I have been here at least 20 times, starting in 2004. It is some of the best gelato I have had in Italy, made by a master. The price/quantity/quality are superb!

Amazing service and a wide range of flavours to choose from. Each gelato flavour tasted incredible. My personal favourites were Cookies and Limone. The owner of the branch made you feel welcome and was always happy to see us in his store!

My favorite gelato is amarena (sour cherry)...then, I tried the Fondonte al cioccolato con cardamom. That became my favorite...which I had daily with a request for "a small dab of amarena on top". Di Silvio was a pastry chef on a cruiseline....his cakes and tortes...More

The confetto flavor was my absolute favorite! They are open at all times of the day for the hungry people that aren't concerned with, "this isn't ice cream eating time!" The staff is friendly and helpful.
