“Gelato Italiano”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

I don't know what people expect from a Folkestone ice cream shop and maybe the location could be better but it is easier to eat one of their superb Italian ice creams on foot rather than worrying about parking!

All the flavourings come from Italy and are then made on the premises into the finest ice cream in the area if not in all of Kent.

When in Folkestone for shopping or simply to walk along the Leas we call in and get a tub!

“Truly fantastic Ice Cream - don't pass it by !”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

This place is neither easy to find, easy to park near(unless you are a local) or easy on the eye. Don't let any of that put you off, it's some of the best Ice Cream I've ever had...tucked down a side street in Folkestone(100 yards from the also superb Chambers pub/restaurant/café). The combinations and concoctions are as good as anything I've had in Italy. There are some good frozen yoghurt options for those who think that's a good idea, few sorbets too. Its closed during the winter months and opens up again in spring - it may be open as I write this, not sure. From my recollection of last summer, my fave flavour is the coffee option. Can't remember many of the flavours. It's a family run business, takeaway only, they have a small concession on the Leas too. Truly this is a local gem.
