I have never seen queues at 11 pm outside a gelato place. A tiny place tucked away with the most amazing flavours of gelato. Not over priced and generous servings. It's a paradise. Even the priests were waiting to get their fix. Go try it you'll be glad you did

This spot was hard to find...we should have just looked for the line coming out of a very small storefront. While the line was long, the wait was worth it. Delicious gelato. We had a study of trying as much gelato as we could during our 2 weeks, and found this at the top of our list.
