The ice cream is great, ok, it's really great. Having half an hour wasted in line, waiting for so many ppl to have an ice cream...it is not great. Too much marketing, there is plenty of great ice cream shop in Bologna. Avoid the flock

We agree with our tour guide and so many who have already reviewed this gelato place. It is the best we tasted during our 20 days in Italy. The flavors are strong and the texture is creamy and smooth. Wow!

Great icecream, fastastic flavours, very innovative. Generous portions, with the added bonus of liquid chocolate at the bottom of the waffle. Friendly staff, keen to help. Although there are no seats inside, la piazza Cavour with beautiful trees, a lovely pond and amazing flowers offers the perfect setting to enjoy even more the experience of eating your icecream.

We have been visiting Italy for 20 years and this is the best ice cream we have tasted. We had the mandarin ice cream topped with vanilla - very difficult to choose as there were so many flavours. Very popular as there was a long queue but worth the wait.

Local resident says that Bologna has more icecreams shops per capita than any other city in Italy....While I cannot confirm that fact I can say they appear to be everywhere. Told to visit La Funivia to try "Alice"...pronounced ahhleechaay. Very good but also try the remarkable pinenut flavour....yes pinenut ! Also to be highly recommended Contessa.

We have travelled to Italy many times and eaten gelato in many, many places. This is by far the best! The menu is in Italian, but it appears that most of the staff speak a little English. DO NOT MISS THIS PLACE!!!!

It's my favourite Gelateria in Bologna, they produce ice cream very creamy and tasteful. So good!!! You can take the gelato and sit in the little patio outside or simply take a walk while eating it.

We found it by mistake. Having a queue in front of the door is what made us try their ice cream. Very creamy. I loved the one with pine nuts but the other flavors were great as well. Among the three ice cream shops where I would stop any time.
