People queue outside this place and there is no doubt as to why! We saw a queue, joined it, presumed it would be good ice cream...and it was! So creamy and beautiful. Proper Italian Gelato!

This is the best ice cream I've tried around the world. It's really worth the visit. The "biscotti gelati" are also amazing.

The lady behind the counter was not exactly friendly and gave the impression that she would rather be anywhere else. The ice creams were synthetic in favour badly presented.

One of the best gelato I've ever tried! Very charmimg place, full of people. Staff friendly! It is next to Lago Maggiore so you can eat gelato in a peaceful atmosphere. Wide range of flavours, hand-made of course! Try it.

Lots of flavors to choose from and all are deep with flavor. The mango was really authentic, and the coconut was natural with pieces of coconut within it. Righr across the street from the lake where you can take it all in.

The place has some great gelato flavors. It has the standard flavors and a few worth exploring. If you go, you have to try the Almond Brittle. It's fantastic. That being said, the staff is not always in the best mood and there is cheaper Gelato to be found elsewhere.
