Awlays packed and worth the wait!

The most delicious gelato outside of Rome! The shop is always packed with people but the queue moves fairly fast and it is well worth waiting for. Some really different flavours and they are all delicious! They also serve crepes but I alwys go for the gelato.

Brilliant ice cream, great selection of flavours to choose from with a few non standard flavours and all reasonably priced. Definitely worth a try.

Bought four flavours of ice cream and to be honest we have tasted better British icecream, not to say this was bad just not as good as expected

Usually go to Marshfields just up the road but friends say this place is just as good and I have to agree, I had 2 scoops Morello Cherry and Lemon and they both tasted great the Lemon was really good. So Marshfields or Real Italian, they both get my vote

What's not to love about this delicious ice cream? Perfect Italian treat on a hot day. Generous size serving and good selection of flavors.
