Simply the best gelato in Bologna

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.

We travelled three weeks throughout Italy and this was by far the best gelato we had! The gelato was very smooth and there were many flavours on offer. Enjoy.

Try the flavors Cassata Siciliana e Alice. The biscotti are more beautiful than tasty, so don't change a gelato for one of these.

Greatest quality and taste. It's for a reason you have sometimes to stand in a long line extending to the street.

Best ice-cream. Introduced to Funivia by our lovely tour guide Isabella from Amazing Italy, and it was outstanding. Loved the strawberry sorbet, and the Pistachio, the almond special with Ameretto and the cherry best. Would have come back for more but they don't open until midday (it was unfortunately my last morning). Top tips from the lovely Isabella for great... More

The 'cone' they have here is not a cone! I had the hazelnut gelato which had no real flavour to it at all. The consistency was quite good...creamy like real southern/ SIcilian gelato! My friends enjoyed their flavours. Portion sizes are small and the prices are high! Also, the premises is tiny so you have to eat your gelato outside...fine... More

This place was so beyond good! I asked for hazelnut ice cream, and when I tasted it, I felt like I went to heaven. Plus, the chocolates looked very good too! It's a must!
