Excellent ice cream with a really good flavor selection

Stopped here for ice cream after dinner. The flavor selections were wonderful. I had a mixed cup of chocolate and hazelnut, and it was wonderful. Price is good as well.

The ice cream was really nice! There is a lot to choose from and it is delicious. However a downside is that they don't have plastic cups for the coffee.

Consistently good with artisanal gelato. The Malaga (rum raisin) as well as their fruit flavors were very good. Very popular, especially after dinner, but worth the wait.

Français / English J'ai pris une glace Banane / Myrtilles. La banane a un goût de bonbons banane au lieu de vraie banane, et la myrtille avait le goût d'une glace Picard. J'ai pris deux parfums, la personne derrière moi a pris 3 parfums et a obtenu la même quantité totale de glace tout en payant plus cher. De la... More

Homemade italian ice-cream in lots, lots of flavours. No artificial colours og flavours. The place dosen't look as much, but don't let you be fooled. The icecream is gorgeous.

As someone who skirts addiction to ice cream, I can say without hesitation that this homemade ice cream store offers the best stuff in Antibes. Try the Ferrero Rocher flavour.

My husband and I visited Antibes yesterday and stumbled upon this gelato place. First of all, I want to say that our gelato was outstanding! Burst in your mouth flavor and we were so happy we chose this particular establishment. However, the 2 young ladies working the counter could not have been more unfriendly.

This Amarena Gelato owner studied under the most decorated man in France. He made an amazing pistachio basil gelato, each flavor was a blast on my tongue. The sweet flavors were exactly like their chocolate bar counterparts and he was truly the best gelato I've ever had in my life.

I know ice cream and I know what's added to it to make it commercially profitable. This ice cream is excellent! Dairy ice cream with no added fat - great texture and no lumps of ice from miss service. Worth every penny - I love it!
