Not a restaurant but a ice cream shop. I wish trip adviser would have separate category's. Not sure if all ice creams are made on site but some are, very nice indeed and not bad value. A very small shop opposite the crazy golf course.

After a game of minigolf, the loser always gets in a round of icecreams from di polas. Made on the premises the ices and sorbets are superb. Recommend the salted caramel and the lemon meringue. Delicious. Also cakes and coffees too.

Its always busy here and really good but they need more choc chips! Mint ice cream without chic chips, and not stracciatella.

If you have a few pounds in your pocket on a warm day then this is the best way to spend them in Hastings. It's well worth braving any queues for one of these delicious hand-made ices; the only difficultly is choosing which flavour to have. The friendly and patient staff are happy to offer a taste before you commit,... More

If you want the best ice cream, sorbet and gelatto anywhere in Hastings then this is the place for sure. Superb quality assortment of traditional Italian style ice creams, sorbets and gelatti and the portion sizes can be huge if you opt for one of their 3 scoop jobs (no shabby portions here even on single scoops).

Roberto & Sian deserve their high ranking in Trip Advisor. Their scoops are generous and the flavours they produce are simply amazing. Be patient with the queues, it's worth the wait. There is also a local discount card where you can get 20% off on every Tuesday and Friday.

We found Di Polas last time we visited Hastings. So it was a "must" for us to return. OK. Its not as cheap as a 99 from Mr Whippy but the ice cream is so good price isn't a consideration. We had 2x Salted Caramel, 1 strawberry sundae and 1 mint choc chip. Fantastic.
