An absolute must do when in Hastings. Wow. Up there with the best ice creams I have ever eaten. Prices great for the portion size, good range of flavours - on the small side but best to not be overwhelmed! The ice cream itself it just incredible. Visit Di Polas - you will not regret it.

Di Polas always has a queue and it should have for the ice creams are simply amazing! The queue always goes down super fast so you aren't waiting around for ages, then you are always greeted by the lovely staff. I go here regularly especially in the summer and I have never had a bad experience. I would definitely recommend... More

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). The Italian owner... More
