Yum!

Great Gelati and good prices. Was offered fresh gelato that just came from the machine. You could tell the difference in flavour! It was awesome!

This is hands down the best gelato I've ever had and better than any American style ice cream as well. I guess you could get a flavor you don't care for since the store stays a bit from traditional gelato but isn't that true of everything. I've been here several time over the course of 3 years and it is... More

I had about 20 scoops of ice cream at Raki during my week-long stay in Sorrento and loved every one of them! Their ice cream is incredibly tasty; my favourites were the pistachio, tiramisu and mandarin.

We asked our local host where we would find the best gelato in Sorrento and this is where she sent us. Just for the heck of it I asked the same question of a couple other local people and received the same answer.....Raki! So with several people giving us the same recommendation I knew this was the place to go... More

This is a cute little gelato shop mixed among the shops on the side streets of Sorrento. You will notice their little purple chairs and tables. They have some interesting flavors, with less sugar and simple ingredients. This is by far the best gelato we found in Sorrento. I would say the only negative is that you cannot see the... More

Raki Gelateria offers gelato with 30% less sugar than "normal" gelato. The result??? Pretty darn good gelato! They are right in the midst of the shops in the old town of Sorrento, and they offered about 12 varieties when I was there (earlier this evening). Perhaps they offer a larger selection in the busier times of the year. I had... More

Just outstanding! Not quite as good as Messina in Bondi Beach in Australia, which is without peer, b but pretty bloody good. Highly recommend!

This was the best guilty pleasure on my trip. For two delicious weeks I stopped in everyday to try different flavors and savor the experience. The gelato is fresh, healthy and rich with flavor. The owners are delightful and patient as customers deliberate on which one to order. It was a wonderful experience. Don't miss it!
