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

I would come back here again. Gelato was great and the people working there were more than happy to see their customers smile with ice cream in their hands. And the glass window that opens up is also very cool!

I can totally recommend this place, for me they have the best ice-cream, sorbets & granite I have ever eaten! You really notice that they use fruits and other ingredients of an excellent quality and its bio! Its ice-cream production at a different level and you feel their passion for the art of it. Whenever I am in Bologna I... More

Now renamed Gelateria Galliera 49, we literally stumbled across this great little gelateria, located in a small, out of the way piazza near the park. Seeing the queue of almost all locals on a sunny afternoon, we joined the line and were not disappointed. After looking through the choices for the day, we selected a limone granita and a marscapone... More
