Delicious ice-cream and marvelous desserts

we stopped to grab some ice-cream, but there are also tables outside, so one can order a huge ice-cream dessert -like banana-split or a cup of ice-cream mix with cookies and chocolate. The variety is really good -I preferred a cherry yogurt and a scope of amaretto, though the last one was a bit too... read more

Located in a pleasant area of the city, on a corner, it is a good place to sit down, have an ice cream and enjoy the pleasant sun on a sunny afternoon. Very clean place with delicious ice creams. I recommend it!!! One of my favorite is the mango ice cream!

This is definitely best Italian gelateria in the Rhein-Main area. Very delicious with a great variety of flavors and down to earth prices.

I'm not sure why so many people use Italian ice cream and gelato as the gold standard. Certainly, compared to that I think Eis Christina is better, but that doesn't make it the best ice cream. I guess I just prefer frozen custard and other good heavy ice creams (or sometimes soft-serve, and I don't care if you judge me... More

Having very recently come back from a trip to Italy I'm going to break the hearts of my italian friends but... actually I think Eis Cristina is better than any of the gelato I've had in Italy. And I tried several recommended locations by the locals. Eis Cristina is that good and also incredibly cheap, specially considering Frankfurt standards.

I went to this "Eiscafé" with a friend, she's living in Frankfurt and she told me "this is the best place ever to have an ice cream", and I was like "ok , maybe it's good but it can't be SO amazing", and fortunately I was wrong, and now I can tell you this Ice Cream Shop is one of... More

Far and away the best ice cream I've had in Frankfurt. Everything is so fresh. They use real mint in their mint ice cream. Unique flavors that are so full of flavor. Fantastic and friendly staff as well. Be prepared to wait in line, or find it difficult to find seating. That says something right there.

Eis is my husband's turf. He has an ice cream-parlor radar similar to the shoe/handbag-shop radar that I have. He can't pass by an ice cream shop without giving it a try, and in Frankfurt, there are eis shops all over the city. He has his favorites and now I have mine. We were walking around our new neighborhood when... More

The ice cream is absolutely fantastic (made in-house), great location and attentive staff. Italian is spoken among the employees, which makes you feel in a real Gelataria!
