Don't miss this terrific ice cream if you're in Bologna. Try the standard flavors as the weird ones are not on par with the quality of vanilla, hazelnut etc...

The gelato is very good with unique flavors. A bit outside the city center but a nice walk to get there.

In Bologna gelato is quite expensive when compared with other italian cities; in Italy the quality is generally high, so it's better to spend that extra money for something that really worths it. There are some gelateria in Bologna that are really a couple of steps above the others and this is probably the best one. Location is not so... More

The store is small and traditional. It was my 1st visit for Cosmoprof Bologna and what I am the most missing now about Bologna is pistachio ice cream in Cremeria Santo Stefano. It was creamy, light and so fresh pistachio taste. I wish I could 'take away' it to Seoul.

My personal favorite gelato here is the Chai Tea gelato. Very unique to this particular gelateria in Bologna. The gelato here is much more creamy then your typical gelato hence they call it a cremeria. There other flavors are great as well as I have not had one so far that I have disliked (I have been there over 10... More

Luckily for me, Cremeria Santo Stefano was located just down the street from where I was staying. This place is a gem. If you're not familiar with a certain flavor, they'll gladly give you a taste. I had never heard of pistachio salato (salted) before. When I mentioned that to the woman behind the counter, she said "Oh, it's so... More

First night in Bologna I found this by chance, second night I went looking for it! Variety, great price, nice staff, they had my favourite (Mascarpone) !!! It's a small space, but has lots of soul and you just won't stop coming for more, I guarentee! I can't express here how great it is, you just have to try it... More

came across this lovely ice cream shop whilst wandering around the area of San Stefano. A sign saying salted pistachio ice cream made with pistachio from turkey i believe. pistachio is my favourite so just had to try it. I ended up trying that alongside another slightly sweeter versio made with pistachios from Bronte. Both were equally delicious

We greedily ate ice cream in a number of gelateria/cremeria in Bologna and Verona, but this one was outstanding. It's way down the street from the centre of town and we were flagging before we found it. Apparently it's only been going for 7 years but the decor has been cleverly contrived to appear as if it's at least 70... More
