The ice cream was of rather low quality, and the price way too high. Even in Bath one can find a better ice cream for much less.

Although it's called the real Italian ice cream company, they also serve waffles and crepes. The waffles are really delicious. It is made fresh in front of you and is served hot. Have it with your favourite gelato and add toppings. Bliss!

Not much needed to be said really, other than really great ice cream that is perfect for a sunny day in Bath. In a great location to then go and sit in Pultney Gardens or walk around the city.

Loved the gelato at this shop! I had a "medium" strawberry cone that was huge! It was so tasty. There are free restrooms in the building which was great as well. Check out this shop, so tasty.

The following sentence may be a mouthful, but then again so is the ice-cream. Let your taste buds loose in a compact space filled with powerful flavours that with one bite will overcome the desire to count calories and instead rejoice la dolce vita.

After a busy day on the streets of Bath our 9 year suggested ice cream - we headed here after spotting it the day before. Really good quality ice cream, friendly staff and fairly priced. Particularly like the green apple flavour ice cream....our favourite..

I came in here to buy an ice cream and coffee. The shop was empty and I was helping my young daughter read the ice cream flavours. When she made her choice, the staff member made a sadly comment about whether she had "made her mind up then?" I asked for a coffee and that was served with in a... More

Although I think they could have more flavors, you cannot argue with great tasting ice cream with a great tasting price.
