Visited for the very first time in June 2018. Didn't read the reviews just i thought about giving it a chance and taste their ice-cream as i thought that the Italian brand name would paid me off.
In brief.. an italian lady welcomed us inside her kitsch Gelateria, with a lay out jumped form the late 80's but that was really funny and nostalgic.
To the point...i tasted 3 different ice cream flavours (Moka, Tiramisu and chocolate) and their quality and taste were really bad and artificial. What is more, their waffle cone was straight landed from the 80's with a plastic - like flavour, while serious competitors offer amazingly crunchy freshly baked waffle cones. As the ice cream started to melt, i observed it dripping down the cone and you could literally see it its watery mixture. I got shocked. It was pure water blended with artificial flavours. Apart from that, the italian lady didn't issue any receipt upon purchase.
Next day i discussed my incident with the local lady at our hotel we were staying and she confirmed my concerns. She let me know that it was the worst Gelateria in town while only tourists visit that place. Will never return....

Amazing gelateria in Nafplio. We are visiting Nafplio for the Last 35 years or more. Every time our first stop is at the gelateria. Propably the best ice cream in Greece. Try the chily chocolate or the grapa chardonay chocolate or try whatever you like. The taste will stay in your memory for ever.

The Roman proprietor greets you and offers you samples. They give you a cookie and a glass of water with your gelato. They sell some other Italian delicacies too, but who cares, when you are eating gelato? There’s also dairy-free sorbetto. All beautiful and yummy.

An italian corner in the old town of Nafplio. Authentic italian gelato and many flavour choices. Friendly staff and more friendly owners. Once in Nafplio, you can' t miss it.

The staff couldn’t be nicer. Whenever we asked about a flavor, they were happy to give us a taste. Very friendly and helpful. The gelato and sorbetto were delicious.
