Great quality ice cream

Great flavours, great texture, great everything! Brave the queues - it's worth it for a fantastic ice cream to help cool down from the Riviera heat!

Never disappointed with the wide range of flavors from Fenocchio ! Wanna try an unusual flavor, Name it, you got it ! Then close your eyes and imagine a fruit, a herb, a cocktail, your ice cream will just be it !

Really nice Ice maker :D It's refreshing to go there and there is so many taste that each time it's a discovery. It's oppen at all time in the night and late at night ! So after a little restaurant you can go there for the dessert. Only disturbing thing is the crowd, you have to make your own way... More

The toughest part of the visit was selecting the glace or sourbets to taste. Featured are 53 glaces and 28 sorbets of every flavor imaginable. Service was efficient and pricing competetive. We did not sit while eating, but I suspect we could have taken any seat in the crowded square. We were glad that we came back to this glacier... More

Fenocchios is a very nice, good quality ice cream store with a huge range of flavours. I would say that the yummy ice cream is just about worth the insanely long lines but if you're not patient I wouldn't recommend it. The ice cream itself is delicious - especially Nutella flavour, and I would recommend a visit to most people,... More

Great ice cream choices. Buy from the waggon and enjoy across in the shade in their designated area. Be daring and order some you have never heard of.

Although the place is always mobbed it never takes too long to get served. The time waiting in line allows you to study the many choices of ice cream there are to choose from. There are so many flavors that you could go every day for an entire month and you would not have sampled everything. Fantastic ice cream and... More

The most difficult thing ever was to decide what to take! So many great icecreams and sorbets.... First I had "just" a cornet of chocolade and it was amazing!! Yam. Second time I chose mango and that was also tasty. No wonder there are always lots of people queueing! Service was quick and frendly and I think the price is... More
