Excellent ice cream

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

Walked 4 kilometers in the italian heat just to get there, definitely worth it! The gelato was just perfect and the seller was very nice and generous. A MUST in Bologna!

It pays to wonder around I ended up here and it was wonderful; the Gelato is super creamy and flavorful. This place gave me pause, questioning my opinions of my favorite Gelato in all of Italy, it is definitely in my top 3. They have gourmet flavors like chia and ricotta with fig. It is also good price at 1... More

After reading reviews on TripAdvisor we had to visit. And we were not disappointed. Fabulous selection of flavours to choose from. Beautifully smooth and creamy gelato, we had Nutella, Panna Cotta and Hazelnut and all were amazing. Will be heading back again for some more before we leave.

Stumbled upon this place and even prior to looking on TripAdvisor rating one can see how quality this place is. Tasted 4 flavours and immediately took 3 more. So good, in the league of its own. We tried 2 other highest rated cremerias in Bologna, which were exceptional as well - but this one beats them all. Especially liked the... More

I've eaten way more than my fair share of gelato in the 5 months I've lived in Italy, but this was truly top notch. No place to sit except some overturned milk crates right next to the street, but do go and get some of this creamy icy treat to go. I got the Cioccolato di Venezuela which was an... More

With gelato shops everywhere, this one stands out. The gelato is made in small batches from carefully sourced ingredients. The special flavors each day are amazing. A recent one was caramel fig...heaven! The gelato is very creamy and rich. The batches are not piled high so they are not exposed to air which keeps the gelato smooth and the flavors... More

Just delicious! Salted pistachio ice cream was particularly good! Will definitely return even if it's slightly out of our way.
