This became my go to place for ice cream whilst on holiday. Always a wide range of flavours to choose from and friendly staff to serve you.

Me - Passion fruit (but the black cherry, the forest fruits and the lemon were so very very close behind!!! So many flavors not enough time to try... More

The staff were extreamely friendly, food excellent well priced I agree with previous comments venture further inside to the restaurant area if it isnt on the menu the staff will find it for you. This is much more than an ice cream parlour/pizza establishment Jan/ UK

We tried this address after reading about the big choice (80?) in ice cream tastes (we later found out that lots of places offer large numbers of different tastes). The tastes we had where fine and my wife really enjoyed the fruit salad she took. It's a large and clean place with a professional and friendly staff. Being 'clean' It... More

Open late and with many diffrent flavours we will return. The personal is stiff and very unservice minded, does the job nothing more.

Too much choice! Could have just an ice cream or coffee or a full meal. The choice of ice creams and desserts meant you could keep returning time and again. Try the crepes an sundaes.

We have tried a different ice cream place every night during our week's stay in Sorrento. This one was the worst. We had to return one wafer because it was stale. The ice cream was watery and the service unfriendly (at best), the staff were off hand and made you feel very unwelcome. They were very careful to make sure... More

This was one of the very few places to do handmade sandwiches to takeaway. I know the Italians don't really go in for it but it was just what we needed and they were freshly made in front of us. 4-5 euros each.
