“Ice cream like it should be!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

There is not much to crow about in Exmouth, however, the ice cream in Antonio's definitely puts it on the map. The flavours were splendid and another thing - coffee is the proper Italian too. We sat with others around us who were obviously 'regulars' and I think if I lived there, I too would be tempted more than is good for the waistline...

“Scrummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

My mum and myself have recently started coming on daytrips to Exmouth from Exeter and found this little gem after gettig off the train. Best ice cream I have had for years, very tasty! My mum doesn't like ice cream but loves the different sorbets you do. We get a treat from here every time we visit. Lovely!

So pleased to hear your comments about the Sorbets as we strive to ensure these are available both as a fat free and a dairy free alternative to those who aren't ice cream "addicts".Thanks again for taking the time to provide us with your feedback.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

Have been to Antonio's three times whilst on day trips from Exeter and have been impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the service provided. The dark hot chocolate melt was delicious on all three occasions and I would recommend it. A great variety of ice creams and sundaes and always a difficult choice over which one to try. I particularly enjoyed the donut ice cream which was available on the last visit . There was a lovely selection of home made cakes as well. I am looking forward to bringing my mother down to Exmouth to sample the ice cream soon.

Rosemary, many thanks for your lovely comments. You may be aware that the doughnut ice cream was the winner of the New Ice Cream competition held with Bassetts Farm pupils. This means that 10p from every scoop of Darcy's Doughnut Delight goes directly to Exmouth RNLI.

“Coffee and Ice Cream.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

We visited Antonio during a short break in Exmouth. We all had their fantastic Gelato in various flavours and all were delicious. My wife and I had coffee which was excellent. The owner then gave us a loyalty card and we got the children the nicest hot chocolate they have ever had, free!!
This was a friendly, well run, stunning example of why we should be getting our coffee anywhere accept Starbucks, Costa and Café Nero. Good luck to "Antonio" and his staff. We'll defiantaley be back next time we are in Exmouth. Thank you.
