Exactly what you want in a nice cream shop!

The shop was open really late into the evening, we visited at around 9pm! Amazing ice cream, reasonable prices and large portions! Definitely worth a visit.

A different selection of ice cream every time we go. If you don't like ice cream they also offer coffee, waffles and crepes.

The ice cream here is absolutely delicious. We came here twice during our four day trip. The flavours differed a bit each day and all I wanted was to try each and every one! Prices are quite high but given the quality of the ice cream, reasonable. One thing was, we think there may have been a small language barrier... More

We had an ice cream here whilst visiting Bath and in all it was good. We ice cream tasted great the place had a good look about it and the staff were good. The napkins though need changing as they are hard and resemble grease proof paper !

Popped in for a shake ...about 10 different flavours of ice-cream to pick from. Shakes were ok but nothing to special ...Good for a quick refreshment.

Tasty crepes and authentic Italian coffee, though service was a little burly. Conveniently located near the Roman Baths.

We visited and had fabulous ice cream best tasted for ages. We went late after a meal in our way back to the hotel. Great flavour and consistency. Even went back next day for some more. Can't wait to visit again soon.

The choices were many. The gelato was very good. Take away or sit down. Absolutely worth trying. Right next door to the Real Italian Pizza Company. Both are just off the main square and easy to find.
