Best Gelato ever

I love gelato. When I am in Italy, I eat it at least once per day, sometimes twice. Altogether we have spent two months in Italy from the northern part to Sicily. My husband & I discovered Gelateria Zini on our second day in Sorrento. We went there every night for the rest of our week long stay... read more

We stumbled across this gelato store by chance and was greeted by Idoya who was extremely friendly. The serving was generous and the handmade cones were to die for! My husband had the Sorrento Tiramisu which he absolutely loved! We definitely recommend this place!!

Stopped off for a sit down and a ice cream, spoilt for choice. 30 choices theMango was perfect to refresh you on a hot day. Very nice place, staff very friendly and happy to help with the hard choice. Would highly recommend when you're in Sorrento.

I have been to at least 10 gelato shops on my Italy trip so far and this is definitely at the top of my list! Great flavors and generous portions! My favorite was the Ferror Rocher and Sorrento Gardens. My hubby had the Pistachio + Himalayan sea salt and Lemon tiramisu.

We came across Zini's by chance and so glad we did. We were greeted by Idoya with a broad smile and an enthusiasm for a product that couldn't but help engage you in conversation. The choice was fantastic and there were various options re size of cone available. We opted for the 2.5 euro and was then told this entitled... More

A small cup with 1 or 2 flavors is 2,5 Euros, so fair value for excellent flavors. Ask for a taste of a flavor if you're not sure. There are a few seats at Zini if you don't want to eat your gelato whilr walking. This is an excellent stop on the way back to your room after sightseeing.

What a wonderful place with the most amazing range of ice creams. The interesting mixes proposed by the most enthusiastic owner stirs the taste buds so much that you are almost salivating before you make the difficult choice and actually buy. Paradise indeed.

I've tried gelato in Venice, Verona, Garda, and a few places around the Amalfo coast. As great as these experiences were, they pale in comparison to the gelato at Zini's. Whereas the other places had a more mass produced taste, that was difficult to differentiate between, Zini's was unique, in that it actually tasted (and is) homemade! Also - my... More
