Overpriced, hit and miss tasting ice cream!

In one of the guides we had, this placed was touted as the best tasting ice cream in town. We got there and once we sat to have a crepe with ice cream, we noticed the prices were a bit exorbitant. One crepe with two ice cream scoops, 8 euros or a bit more. The same thing in Brussels will... read more

On the river near Place de Change, Nardone Rene Glacier serves Lyon's best ice cream, or rather gelato. Sit outdoors when the weather allows or enjoy the cozy interior for a cool weather treat. The menu is vast; so take your time to decide. Oh! If you need an English language menu, just ask your waiter. All selections are served... More

Two different orders could not be delivered. Nearly no waiter can speak english. The third order (ice cream) was overpriced (8.5 euros for 2 small balls) and too artificially flavored. Had to wait for more than 10 minutes for our change (until I asked for the money) Could not unterstand the masses of people eating there.

Great menu and you get your money's worth. They have Crepes and ice creams. Incredible flavours. I love the Nutella Crepes at Nardones.

Really lovely flavours. We just bumped in to this little ice cream shop and needed to cool down. Boy, were we not disappointed. I would consider this as the best in Lyon.

This cafe is located in Vieux-Lyon, in a very cute spot; there's a dehor where you can enjoy Nardone's glacier looking across the river Rhone sitting under beautiful trees and looking at the nicely drawn facade of the building. The setting is therefore perfect and so is the staff, who is kind and helpful (and very efficient too: considering the... More

We knew this ice cream would be good by the increasing number of people of all ages we saw licking their cones as we got closer to the shop. My friend said the Café Liégeois was the best she'd had (coffee ice cream sundae with chocolate sauce). I tried different kinds (we went back a second time) and especially enjoyed... More

What a wonderful place! Certainly one for the ice-cream addict. There is a terrific selection of flavours which tempt you back for another day! It was lovely to sit outside and watch the world go by while savouring a new flavour!

I don't have a big sweet tooth, but two people had independently recommended Rene Nardone, so we had to give it a try. They had a wide variety of flavors that were refreshingly original - madeleine, speculoos, orange-ginger, mojito, and white-chocolate-Nutella, just to name a few. They also had a enticing array of fruit flavors, such as blackberry, pear, and... More
