You are rather spoilt for ice cream in Switzerland, where it is almost an art form. Nowhere is this truer than in Ticino - hardly surprisingly as you are just over the border from Italy - but inevitably some gelaterie are a bit touristy. You...More

Excellent gelato and great selection of flavors. We made a point to visit everyday we were in Locarno. Patio is nice (as long as you are down wind of the smokers). Staff was nice, friendly and helpful to non-Italian speakers. Worth a visit.

The staff was limited and busy ! The tiramisu was very good. The coffee so so. Delightful place to sit and enjoy the lake and people watching. Close to the train station if your on the run. Good selection of gelato.

We went to Vera Gelateria many times and enjoyed various flavours. Staff seems a bit removed and, even when it was quiet, not really helpful answering questions. But then, we were there for the ice cream, which is definitely worth every visit!

If you are really serious about ice-cream, this is a place to not miss. If you manage, try them all! Great Flavors and very down to earth atmosphere - the highlight is the product. Absolutely a must! Recommend!

We enjoyed the gelati here but the nut, dairy and chocolate flavours were clear standouts over the fruity ones. The prices are great and it's a short stroll from both the lake and the station.
