I stumbled upon this little gem by accident and I have to say they have the most delicious ice creams. I tried the salted Carmel and pistachio with a little whipped cream on the top and it was outstanding. It is also worth trying the granite type of ice-cream which is really refreshing as it is like a posh slush... More

A fine range of fabulous ice cream served from a small area in via Galliera in Bologna. The staff are dressed in bright yellow T shirts bearing the shop's logo and their manner matches that brightness. A great place to stop for a treat.

I had been told to try the ice cream from here by my Italian suppliers. They told me that until I'd tried gelato from here then I would die not knowing one of earths great delights. Well, I ordered a two flavour cone, pistachio and salted caramel with a dollop of frozen cream on top. It was surely a taste... More

One of the best ice cream in bologna. Every time I pass it there is always a long queue in front of the door. I have tried "black tea" and "salt caramel ". All very nice. The "black tea" is like milks tea. The only defect is that these two favors are so similar in color...

It's for sure one of the best gelatos in Bologna, renowned for it's tradition. Lots of flavors, some their own creations, as the Crema Mediterranea, and others the traditional ones, like pistachio and hazelnut. Go there and you will be not disapointed...

Gourgeous, creamy ice creams. lots of flavours to please everyone. I tested the Salted Caramel. Divine. the salt enhances the caramel sweetness. and I loved the small short cones, which are served with a little spoon so you can dig into them when you have finished to leek the crown of the ice cream. Will definitively go back next time... More

Italian ice cream has always had a good reputation. The ice cream here is the best i have tasted. We both had an ice cream with 2 flavours and it was superb. I would have given it 5 stars but it wasnt cheap. Definately worth 1 visit unless you are rich !!

It was alright. In terms of flavour, it wasn't unbeatable. It's just a little opening on a side street, so no sitting down, but the location is pretty convenient if you are shopping in the centre. I liked the idea of the 'degustazione', where you can try one flavour at a time. Or if, like me, you can only manage... More
