Definitely the best gelato in the world!

On our Italy road trip we've sampled gelatos from all parts of Italy and this cremeria was our first, so naturally we had a great staring point for judging. This gelato is by far and wide the best gelato in the world, even better than gelateria Dondoli in San Gimignano and their prize winning... read more

This is a really nice ice cream shop and really good value. I would have given it 5, but i visited another gelateria in bologna the day before which was slightly more to my taste. Still really excellent ice cream and i recommend.

This place was a little hard to find, but well worth the walk. And you have to try at least two flavours! I liked the stratichella which is an Italian special.

Usually the difference among the best is made by little details like a special flavor. I don't remember anything special about them but the ice cream was great. Stop by if you are in the area.

Very tasty ice creams, a perfect place to buy some great sweet stuff, sit on a bank inside, enjoy your ice cream and watch other clients how impatiently they take their first bites.

We have been spoilt by gelaterias in Le Marche! This place was easy to find, slightly off the beaten track which is not a bad thing. The girls serving were lovely, very friendly. The gelato was pretty good, but we've had better outside of Bologna although the flavour combinations on offer here were great. Maybe we should go back and... More

Bologna was one of our stops on our Italy trip and naturally I wanted gelato, after having a look at the reviews, we decided that this place would be a good choice for us. It was a very hot day in Bologna, and I wasn't really into walking too far, so when we had walked for a while in this... More

I was meeting a friend in the area and got there early and so I decided to indulge on some gelato while I waited. So worth it! I got a medium cone with yogurt and pistachio flavors. Loved it!
