Brilliant gelato! The dark chocolate is awesome and the lemon is out of this world. Riccardo is also extremely helpful, he gave us great tips on travelling in Italy on a budget, we went to his shop three nights in a row for dessert and advice!

Riccardo, the shop owner is very friendly and kind person. All the gelatos make me crazy: awesomely great! You can enjoy gelatos with using free Wi-Fi or talking with this awesome guy! If you come to Montecatini Terme, you should come out here!

The children were torn between all the great flavours, (one of the ones chosen was 'smurf blue' - looked completely odd but I was assured it tasted delicious...).

It was a hot July evening and the only thing to cool you down was a gelato - and boy did we strike gold with Riccardo's! The proprietor - Riccardo - is just lovely.
