Very good gelateria with a lot of unique flavours (ex. torti di funivia, cavour, caffè, ...). Very good strawberry also.

I'm going to go ahead and say it: this place is a little overrated. Granted, the ice cream here is good, and you almost certainly won't be disappointed if you decide to stop by. But Bologna is a city blessed with countless shops that scoop out excellent ice cream. Some may think this is common to all Italian cities, but... More

One of the best ice creams I have ever had in my life. Really different set up, not many flavours, but creamy to the max. Would def recommend.

Completely beautiful ice cream, smooth and with the most exquisite range of flavours. In an upmarket area with a square nearby to eat your ice cream in...the square in May was full of the scent of jasmine.

I was on 10 day trip to Italy. I tried best rated gelateries in visited destinations, but this is my favorite. They make their gelato on site and have fantastic flavors. Chocolate that they put in ice cream cone, is a perfect final of this feast.

I went to this ice-cream shop because several friends told me to try once the fantastic flavors offered there. I accepted, the line in front of the shop was impressive, we waited more or less 25 minutes to have our ice-creams. The people serving in the shop were very slow and I don't think a party of 3 was the... More

We discovered the Cremeria Funivia in the Piazza Cavour on our first night in Bologna when we saw a huge line coming out of a brightly lit, engaging storefront. When we found out it was a gelateria, we joined the masses and were not disappointed. We went multiple times during our week-long stay and tried many of their flavors –... More

A friend had told me to go to this place once she knew I was visiting Bologna. On day one we went for an ice cream and were blown away - the best ice cream EVER! Went back the next day and said, "let's just call it lunch!" and ordered four flavours. It was so great - just look at... More

This Gelateria was recommended to be by a local whom I met in Nice, France. I took his advice and ordered a grande size of which I had the choice of waffle or paper cup....of course I took the waffle. I chose pistachio, coffee, bacio and chocolate. As the gelato was scooped into my cup I was taken by surprise... More
