“Ice-dream ...Best in Town..take it from an expert.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

If gelato...is your idea of heaven... If you dream of ice-cream full of fruity flavour ...taken straight from the grove and iced till it screams with delight..then take yourself to the cathedral of creams..fulfilling your dreams...and touch paradiso!..with your tongue! Yum!

No one does it better... Made with fresh milk..and the finest fruits ..producing the melt in the mouth delight... That we know and adore...try the "Cuban chocolate" great combo..rum and chocolate..chips melt and tingle the taste buds...
Think I am waxing lyrical...OTT...try...take the path to heavens gates ...don't be a sinner..
be a winner....leave the rest for the losers.
You,ll never regret the decision...and thank me for leading you to heaven.
Buon appetito....catch you there...if I,m lucky.... :-)

“Let's rip off tourists and be ignorant with it.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

We have been visiting Sorrento for the last 16 years and can honestly say that we have always received a warm welcome everywhere and have always been happy to pay what the proprietor asks. But today on a lovely glorious Bank Holiday we visited this ice cream parlour on the Corso Italia to buy just a single cone of Ice Cream and was charged 8 euros for 2 cones ! When I commented that this was pricey for the area he shrugged his shoulder and pulled his face. If I had my time again I would have told him to eat it himself!! I'm so annoyed and feel totally robbed. The ice cream was nothing special so please go elsewhere and don't pay the prices at the Il Duomo.

“"The Best gelato in Sorrento!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

My husband and I had this gelateria on our list of ones to try in Italy while touring with our group with Gate 1 Travel. I had reviewed the list through Trip Advisor and definitely wanted to try this place out if we could find it! Il Duomo is located around Piazza Tasso and down the road to the left of the Bell Tower. It is on the left going down the side road with an ice cream cone out front!
We tried the strawberry and chocolate flavors on a cone and in a cup and sat out front of the gelateria to enjoy and "people watch." Gelato....yummy!! Glad we found it...so will you!
Total cost: 6 Euro

“Gelato almost every night of our stay....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

Well after sampling other Gelato places in Sorrento our family unanimously decided that Il Duomo was by far the best.
With the exception of a couple of nights we indulged in Gelato after dinner every night....great choice in flavours at a reasonable prices.
Don't waste your time on the others, go straight here for pure gelato heaven!

“The Best Gelato in Sorrento”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2013

Advised by a local to go here where the staff were very friendly and let us try different flavours. The owner was a legend and let us come down stairs to watch the magic happen and he made fresh gelato. He went to Ice cream school for 3 years hence why he knows the secrets of how to make the best gelato in town.
If you are in Sorrento this place is a must, we have been every day while on holidays here.
