Delicious flavour, good choice and great value ice cream. Tripadvised this prior to our Hastings trip and came across it by chance as we were walking through the old town (though you can also access from seaside street). Clean, light, busy venue. Friendly staff. Spoilt-for-choice flavours. We tried the seasalt caramel, coconut and vanilla - super! The portions were very... More

You can watch the gelato being made at times which is reassuring that it's not mass produced. A few seats outside for sunny days and friendly staff. Worth a visit for gelato enthusiasts . I don't usually eat ice cream but go out of my way to visit here!

It isn't cheap but then ice cream is supposed to be an occasional treat so thats no bother. What I don't understand is... More

Unfortunately it is rather overpriced as they charge £2 for a single scoop and a little under £5 if you want four. This means that it's only really... More

We had ice cream they were nice, the salted peanut was delicious and unusual. The strawberry and chocolate also very good. Staff lovely and did find some extra strawberry sauce to squirt onto the top of the ice cream at the request of my little boy. Alarmed to see blue bubble gum flavour ice cream, I would prefer them to... More
