Nothing to fault

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... read 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. :)

This place gets busy for a good reason. The salted pistachio may sound odd to some - but the salt really helps to flavour the gelato. (You couldn't say that it was 'salty' per se, just really full of flavour) Not much in the way of interior seating, but there are a few benches outside. I went twice (and it... More

Been living in Bologna for a while and been to a lot of Gelateria, but this one is our favorite! The staffs are always nice and patient with us because sometimes we had a hard time choosing and my Italian is not so good. All gelato is always fresh and not too sweet. All flavors taste amazing and recently they... More

On a recommendation from our B&B, we took the extra steps from San Stefano to the Cremeria, but it was worth the little walk. The gelato is extra creamy an many tasty flavors. Portions are little on the small size but priced about right. Very little seating.

I've tried most of the best rated gelaterias in Bologna, and this is my favourite. The salted caramel with cinnamon cookie flavour is particularly good.

This cafe is really worth visiting if you like ice cream. The salted caramel and cinnamon biscuit was fantastic. I'm sure that the other flavours are just as good.
