It's the best place for ice cream in Bologna. Before leaving the city I went there every day, just to have enough. It's like the best gelato I have ever had... Tastes like heaven.

If you are looking for a delicious ice-cream in Bologna, you should not miss La Funivia. Small place on a crossroads always full of people. Top taste to me: Alice (mascarpone + melted chocolate). You will remember this flavour for a long time.

I'll make this short and sweet (no pun intended): this is the best gelato I've ever tasted and I probably have eaten way too much! So, my advice is simple: if you are in Bologna and you have a pulse, go to Piazza Cavour and treat yourself. You won't be sorry.

I found this gelateria in Bologna by accident - and what an accident this was! They have the tastiest and most sumptuous ice cream I have ever tasted. It is rich, luxurious and, well, to die for. Do not miss it!

We all know that Italians make the best ice cream but this is the best of the best. A little shop on the roadside bedside the park as clean as a whistle, fast service, in tubs or little cornets, sit in the garden and enjoy or take away. A real must.

The bright modern interior and fabulous ice-creams attract the crowds despite being slightly off the main passegiata routes; but well worth the short detour into Piazza Cavour. At 11 PM on a warm September evening the queue stretched out of the door, across the pavement and into the road! But the service was quick and friendly. Unlike some gelaterie, La... More
