Great Ice Cream

Excellent ice cream, not too expensive with outside seating area and great choice. Cannot say this is the best I have had but fairly near the top. Great atmosphere in this lovely square in the old town.

Delicious ice cream in an enormous range of flavours! Tomate basilic, bière, as well as classics like caramel beurre salé, pistache. Always busy queues at the counter, but with very quick service. One of the best places to get ice cream in Nice old town. Try to sample as many as you can.

Place Rossetti is a lovely square in Nice Old Town and a good place to stop when exploring. However, despite the good products, the service has been more than offhand in the past, despite being with French friends, we were made to feel like tourists they didn't care to satisfy. Better just buy at the counter.

The first thing that greats you at Fennochio's is the seeming never-ending line of flavors at the long counter. You are absolutely spoiled for choice as every flavor imaginable is available and then some. The best place to eat Gelato in Nice for sure - and you will keep comnig back to sample more flavors.

There are many many ice cream sellers in Nice, but variety is the big selling point of Fennochio. Lavender, maron glace, Zupa Inglese, blood orange, if you can imagine it, Fennochio have it. The sheer range of choice sets them apart from the rest, and the prices are much the same as everywhere else (whilst not exactly cheap, but you... More

I had read about Fenocchio ice cream in the tour book and I thought it was just another hype account of an ice cream shop....however I must say this is the best, creamiest, yummiest ice cream I ever ate. The selection is huge, I had an orange chocolate one day and a raspberry the next. So rich and satisfying and... More

The setting of this ice-cream parlour is lovely, you get a real vibe of the town, it's not only the ice-cream that's tasty either . . . The guys who own and serve it are as well! Loads of flavours YUM

We have been to Fenocchio many times, usually with friends visiting us here in Nice. The ice-cream is great and we usually get the big desserts 10 - 18€. The icecream is great, the service is on the average level but the seating is terrible on old, not always clean plastic chairs. And there are no toilets available either. They... More

Fennocchio's have a wonderful area to which they sell their ices and sorbets in the old town and in the last couple of years have opened another shop opposite what was the old bus station now a fabulous childrens park in central Nice. You cannot visit this city without going here they have nearly 90 flavours of ice cream some... More
