“Great gelato ”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Homemade ice creams made in the store. Extra dark chocolate and cherry were both amazing. Must try. The owner was very kind. Tucked in a small alley but worth finding.

“Spectacular Ice-Cream!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

A post-dinner pit-stop brought us to this tiny ice-cream shop that hides a pearl in matters of taste. I took an hazelnut ice-cream so good and if I wasn't that full I would have bought a second one! Advised!!

I love the creativity and selection of flavors. The flavors are very intense and fresh. The orange was fantastic. I also liked the rosemary.

“What a find”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

I'll admit that we only went here because of the reviews on TA. You'll need a city map to find it as its tucked down one of the tiny side streets not far from the cathedral. To be honest I'm a bit of a fraidy cat & fund them a bit intimidating but they're fine during the day.
We weren't disappointed. The two of us had a double scoop of 2 different flavours in a waffle cone each. Having devoured copious amounts of ice cream during our two weeks in Italy this was by far the best. I cannot disagree more with You BeeTs who says it had no flavour - the depth of flavours was really good. I make ice cream myself at home & know how difficult it is to balance depth of flavour and its even harder when using real ingredients rather than flavourings.
