The best ice cream in the town. The selection is huge. I just wish they had more seating available. I would like to see sugar free ice creams too.

I visit di-polas nearly every weekend in the summer it has the best icecream ever. Every time you visit there will be a new flavour, my faves being pistachio, turk is delight and liquorice. They also have sorbets and cake. Great price and staff are always friendly and fast even through the queues out the door in the summer.

Visited this shop for a coffee on the way into the antiques district and an icecream on the way out! Italians are renowned for both and you won't be disappointed! The service was friendly and welcoming, the cafe warm and contemporary, and the loo was very clean. The icecream is fresh and creamy, as good as any on a street... More

Hastings' seafront doesn't lack for opportunities for ice cream but, frankly, just ignore the others and head here. The ice cream is beautiful and the range of flavours stunning. They also rotate the flavours a lot so you're never in danger of having the same thing twice unless you really want to. They will also do half-scoops so you can... More

Lots of flavours to choose from. Plenty of choice. Being a chocoholic, had to have the chocolate one. It was lovely. However did feel it was overpriced and so would not go out of my way for it.
