Best lemon ice cream in Bologna

So many places specialize in something complicated and forget how to do the basics... Not this ice cream place. Come here if you wanna have a truly amazing scoop of lemon or strawberry ice cream, but also for delicate flavours like mascarpone. Amazing place.

This is one of those hidden treats you find in the back streets of old towns when abroad. This ice cream parlour sits about 7/8 minitues walk from the main square of Bologna and is a fantastic place. The quality of the ice cream and sorbets are unbelievable. The staff are really friendly and the prices really weren't too bad... More

I stumbled across this gem when I was walking on the street and saw the containers for ice cream that indicate home made ice cream. Tried 90% of the ice creams there. Every single one of them tasted true and just right - not too sweet not too intense. Mascarpone tasted like Mascarpone salted caramel like salted caramel. Be aware... More

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...
