Best Gelato in Bologna!

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... read 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.

This cremeria served the best ice cream I have ever tasted. I tried salted pistachio & chocolate - wow! The servings were pretty small, but the flavours were huge. Lovely shop and brilliant service too. There isn't any seating here, but you can perch on upturned crates on the pavement outside. Simple and very, very special.

Following a recommendation from friends who had visited Bologna a few months prior, we walked well out of our way to try the gelato at Cremeria Santo Stefano. We were so glad we did. It was definitely worth the walk. Without a doubt, theirs was the best gelato we had in Bologna. The distance from our apartment was the only... More

I got the mascarpone with pine nuts, hazelnut, and chai latte, all of which were great. They also have a separate English menu which I found very helpful.

The ice cream is excellent, and they have special flavors every day. The owners are nice, too. Do not miss that one.

I came across this gelateria on a very warm day. Oblivious to the good reviews, I have been meaning to leave a review. Very good, honest gelato. I particularly liked 'Indie' which is chocolate based with ginger and chill flavoured. Really good. Not too sweet. I recommend it. Next time I will have it in 'brioche' - gelato sandwiched in...

We have tried a lot of Italian gelato, and this was definitely the best! It is quite a walk beyond Santo Stefano but it is worth it. There is a menu of flavours for non italian speakers, which certainly helps, but on three visits (in one weekend!) we didn't find one that was anything but superbly creamy and full of... More
