Fantastic icecream

I have been at Cremeria Santo Stefano several times and have never been disappointed. The ice-cream are simply perfect: strong, natural flavours and perfect texture. I also like that they are not too sweet.

The creaminess of this ice cream is a step above of all other good gelatos i have had before. The consistency seemed to be superior to other ice creams. The flavour profile of their menu is also impressive, with interesting flavours that go beyond the usual. My personal favourites were salted pistachio, chai, & chocolate with candied orange bits.

Queue up for food, nah, somehow something I don't easily do. This time the amount of people waiting outside made us curious - and the waiting was worthwhile. Ice cream with strong, creamy flavours - makes you smile and wonder if maybe tomorrow you can pass by again.

This has become a favourite spot each time I go back to Bologna, my home town. The ice cream is delicious and along traditional excellent flavour there always are some exotic or unusual ones. Two years ago I went with a friend in an ice cream outing- cycling, Ice cream, cycling, museum, cycling ,ice cream, cycling, church etc. The criteria... More

I am not a gelato lover but I had to try this ice cream shop and ordered a strawberry only ice cream which was found very strange by the sales girl behind the counter. She said people normally try as much tastes together as possible. It was good anyway.

I visited this little gelateria on a freezing day. I just wanted to have something sweet then. ( Don't ask me why I went to an icecream shop at last. ) I simply followed the reviews on trip advisor and walked about 2km to reach there. The icecream was worth the time I cost. I tried three tastes and I... More

I love ice cream. And I had about 5 from different places all around the city - only to throw them out 1/3 through. But this one really lived up to the hype! Also, I don't normally like pistachio but they have pistachio salato which is salted - sooooooo gooooood!!!! This changed my mind forever about pistachio! The one with... More
