So good!

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!

Here you can taste very good ice-cream though is not the best i have tried in Sicily. Though the taste us balanced not too sweet and creamy. Pistachios is like eating the real thing with roasted pistachio taste.

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.

after extensive research over a two week period my husband and I voted funavia second best for ice cream , it is a beautiful clean place with plenty of space and lots of choices , the staff are very helpful (you pay first then go with a member of staff to choose your flavors) there is a small garden area...

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!
