I had ice cream here some years ago and it was good, last time it wasn't at all: too heavy and, above all, too sweet, I simply couldn't finish it.

I went in, pointed at the 4€ cone and said that the girl behind the counter could choose the flavors... And I was AMAZED! The flavors were fantastic, I went back every day for an ice-cream at this place during my 3 day stay! I messed up the last day when I wanted to be creative and pick my own... More

We enjoyed an ice cream on the first day we arrived in Bologna and had to go to this place every afternoon with our daughter. Tried other ice cream locations in Bologna and Florence ... but this one is just superb. The ice cream has the PERFECT consistency. Creamy, soft and not too cold. All flavours we tried were super...

Although I really liked the flavors of the ice cream, I just like the consistency of traditional gelato more then this cremeria. Don't get me wrong, the ice cream is really delicious and would gladly eat it, I just like the tradition gelato better. If you like pistachio don't miss out on the salted version. It's really unique and haven't... More

Although highly rated by Tripadvisor users, I found nothing special at Cremaria Santo Stefano. I liked the gelato. It is good. However, it was just not better than the other ones I tried in Bologna. Maybe I am wrong, but in my opinion, the best gelatos are to be found in Rome.

You are a tourist in Bologna, have been busy around the city and now you can't wait to get an ice cream. May be you have already realized that they have a strong ice cream tradition here, and there is no shortage of that kind of shops, right? You just wonder where a Bolognese likes getting one. Well, I am... More

We stayed in centre Bologna and it was around 1.25km walk. Defiantly worth it! There is loads of amazing classic and unique choices as well as friendly staff and an English menu :)

This is one of the best gelaterias in Bologna. I spent about 2 weeks in the city and I tried many of the amazing gelaterias around the city and this one was one of my faves. It's also conveniently located close to Basilica Santo Stefano--go see the basilica and museum and enjoy the gelato afterwards. :)
