The reviews here are right! This was a worthwhile visit, a leisurely walk from San Stefano. For the coffee lovers, do get Cremina Guglielmo --- mascarpone, espresso coffee and cocoa beans in plain chocolate. You'll be in for a treat! Although their cappuccino drink isn't something to rave about, their gelato definitely is! I would love to try the other... More

If you are in Bologna you must come here and enjoy a Gelato. Amazing flavors, great customer service, and very clean. It also looks like a popular spot for the locals. Thank you for the scoops of Mascarpone del Capo!

Loved the flavors available especially the "Emma" with the figs and my husband loved the hazelnut. Great price too. 3.8 euro for a big portion with 3 flavors. I will be dreaming about this gelato place forever...

A must try! The gelatos are not too sweet and the texture is amazing. Service could be friendlier. It's located in one of my favourite parts of Bologna, away from the tourists.

It Is a classical italian Gelateria that produces a very tasty icecream with a lot of traditional flavours. Splendid chocolat and creams. You can also find there a nice Sorbetto. The location is also interesting because it is in a street of centre town under tipical "portico". Nice nice nice!,,

For me the best ice cream in town, in the wonderful location of ancient Bologna! Near there you can find Santa Lucia deconsecrated Church, the "Seven Churches", Santa Maria della Vita and Farini St. full of fashion and food shops. Try Michelangelo with almond pieces, or Cassata, or Pistacchio, but also fruit based ice cream as Strawberry or Mango. Really... More
