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.

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!
