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

What more do I need to say? I had the salted caramel with mascarpone and it was absolutely delicious!

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

Stefino is the best ice-creams shop I know in town and all over the world. I like its ice-creams because they are never fat, oily, or too sweet. The list of flavors is rather wide and I love the fact that they don't need to create a new flavor every week to spoil their customers. Both the fruits (my fav!),... More

I actually had his icecream in Cagliari but there is no way to review his Cagliari store (which is a newer one) and I imagine that the icecream must have similar quality at both locations. My family and I tried their icecream in June but I still haven't gotten over how good they were. And believe me, I live in... More

Stefino has among the best ice creams in town. It's a hole in the wall and people usually line up along the portico. My preferred flavor is mediterraneo (pistacchio, almonds..) followed by the chocolates (with rhum, with almonds and with sour cherries). Really worth a visit1

This was recommended to us by a local. What a find! The ice cream is fantastic and the granite so refreshing. It is marked on one of the maps you get at the tourist office and although you think you are walking into a not-great-neighbourhood, keep walking. The staff are really pleasant and give you time to struggle with the... More
