There are not too many places where patrons patiently wait in line. This place is worth it. You get great ice cream for a decent price and the portions are ok as well. Certainly this venue cannot compete with true Italian ice cream but it is very close to it.

Gelateria Pia is a great place for young and older ones. The numerous tastes and colours and cream and ...ohhhh.... Fabulous in Summer and marvellous in Winter. It's one of the "must taste" when you are in Düsseldorf. You would not regret! Outside Service and if you want to sit down and rest having your desert you can step in... More

This is an ice-cream shop, not a real restaurant. So, it is somewhat suprising to see it opping up aong the Ddorf restaurants. And even more among the best ones. The ice cream is definitely good, or perhaps very good and price is super-honest. Yet, I would not put it among the best restaurants in Dusseldorf.

Perfect - just try Amarena. All sorts are extra creamy, rich in taste and the price is still fair. First time we went there we were amazed by the size of one single bowl. No need to go inside - it's too ordinary and nothing special. Just by this delicacy right from the street. It's alway busy and the crowd... More

Pros: - Very good value for money (good prices as well as large portions, in terms of both ice cream and fruit) - Very good quality and tasty ice cream - Fast, friendly and professional service Cons: - Nothing I can think of...

Ok.. so this is a great place to go for take away icecream on a sunny day in Dusseldorf but does it really justify being number 1 on Tripadvisor? Not so sure..

When you see the owner returning from the market at the Düsseldorf Carlsplatz with fresh fruit, you know the ingredients of the ice creams served at the Pia are made with love. The portions are always generous, the prices reasonable. The ice cream creations inside the restaurant are a knockout in appearance and flavor!

Eiscafe Pia is renowned as the the best ice cream cafe in dusseldorf and the crowds on a hot summers day definitely support that statement! Try the strawberry flavour - its my favourite! Prices are reasonable and the selection is vast - i'd recommend you take a walk down the river afterwards to enjoy the view.

There is a good reason for the huge queues. The ice cream is fantastic. And quite cheap. That's two reasons. The place is so good that Germans behave reasonably well in the queue
