Yum!

We found this shop on Trip Advisor. The owner is very friendly and the gelato is delicious. We liked the Holy Cow and the apricot flavors. We will go back tonight to try the savory creeps and more gelato.

A touch of real Italian ice cream in Leon, Spain. I have traveled from top to bottom of Italy recently and this Gelateria sells authentic Italian Gelato. Much better than all other ones I have tried in Leon. Friendly and helpful owners

If I want ice cream, this is where I go. They have lots of options, including coffee. The staff is nice, as well. If you follow them on Twitter, you can get daily passowords and discounts on products!

Choice of crepes or pizza for the more hungry visitor. Also had a wide range of ice-creams, as the title would suggest. Sadly, they are only a seasonal establishment.
