Best Gelato in Leon

Great gelato -- always a long line of happy customers outside. Good snack specially in the scorching Spanish summer. Attendants are very friendly too!

As mentioned by Maverick1 this is not good Italian gelato... It is sweet , not creamy and has no real flavours, this is most certainly not real gelato..

In Italy we use to evaluate the gelateria by tasting the pistacchio icecream. Well I have to tell you that in this gelateria it tasted of nothing special, I don't understand such great reviews. Please note I am Italian. Anyway service is nice, price are average but definitely not so cheap.

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!
