Simply the best

Wow, an experience not to be missed when in Nice. Go early in your visit to Nice as you'll want to go back (again and again).

One day before we ate icecreams in Antibes and it was 10x better. This was OK, not bad, not great. Just normal ice-cream and I must say I expected more

Delicious and the people were very nice! Not as many flavored as the nearest competitor on the square but the quality is better, the people are nicer and the serving sizes are larger. Win! Win!

Tried this on our last day in Nice as Gelato di Andrea (our first choice) was closed on Easter Monday. Equally tasty and in our opinion better than Fenocchio's ice cream and with a similar choice of flavours. A sign in the shop claims that the ice-cream 'chef' is the second best in France!

We came there after reading a review on tripadvisor and we were definitely not disappointed. It was so good that we visited three times!

Cold weather but not to cold for Ice cream. Did a number of different flavors ended up with the "Pecan" and "Raspberry". Fantastic alone and even better together. I really shouldn't say this, but they promised to make their greatest of all to Week #15. Chocolate with just a hint of Chili. Save some for me. I'll be back! 😎

This gelateria has the most eclectic selection of flavors I have seen. From chocolate and vanilla to beer and hot pepper. I found the pear and rhubarb flavors to be quite nice. Of course, you can have either a waffle cone or a dish. I suggest the former as the cones, as the gelatos, are all home made. Definitely worth... More

.....good enough to eat. Located just off Place Rossetti, quite near to Fennocchio....this is the better bet. Manageable number of flavours, some quite unusual. The fruit flavours are stand outs. Prices are fare for the quality. Very patient service....quick to give a taste. Lacks real outdoor sitting space . Is it the best? Try the top five and then you... More

We went on a Saturday, but because it was october, the owner only opened in weekends. To our misfortune, we only had one chance to get icecream ... but man, it was delicious. Right in the historic centre, you can't miss it. And leave a coin for the "Invisible man" next to it :)
