“Icecream heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2011

Bellamia is a hidden gem. Possibly the best ice-cream I have ever had (and I live in Italy!) and certainly the most charming and handsome owners! I highly recommend it. All the flavours are naturally produce, (which is why they cannot be displayed, and are instead hidden in old fashioned cylinders.

“Fantastic authentic homemade Italian ice cream.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2011

This lovely little ice cream parlour is near Santa Maria del Mar. It sells homemade mouth watering Italian ice cream which range from the fabulous dark chocolate, to a selection of delicious fruit sorbets which include passion fruit and mango. It is run by the charming Francesco who hails from Rimini and is passionate about providing real artisan fare made with the freshest of ingredients. The best ice cream to be found outside Italy.

“Bellamia Gelatera Italiana in Gracia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2010

If you go more authentic Catalan area like Gracia you will find as well other Bellamia gelateria. It’s in Plaza de La Virreina where in hot summer days you can have a nice cool shadow of trees and you will enjoy really the best Italian ice-cream in town just sitting on stairs of old church and overlooking everyday life of local people from this area!
My favourite ice cream was mascarpone cream with figs, dulche de leche is really good one too and then chocolate extra noir is must have too.
If you really love ice-cream don’t miss out Bellamia! They don’t’ sell just a ice cream but all the concept how it’s should be in presentation, atmosphere and taste! Loved it!

“One of the best Italian ice creams I ever eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2009

Bellamia seems an old milk shop more than a modern ice cream place.
You can not see ice creams because they are stored inside refrigerated dipping wells, but you will be grateful for that, because they are really creamy and always at right temperature.
Their chocolate is literally fantastic and they have a lot of typical Italian flavors (just in the middle of the old town in Barcelona!!!)
People who serve you is really nice and friendly .
