Too good to miss it

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!

This cremeria was right accross the street from where we ware staying so we passed by once, sometimes twice... a day. Normally I'm not a chocolate ice cream lover but their cioccolato fondente was just... I don't know... to die for. I cannot find words to describe how good it was. The first time I took the combination with mascarpone,... More

This gelateria has daily specials. The one with ricotta cheese the day I went was incredible. Their gelato is more on the creamy side, which I generally don't prefer. But I will still return here nonetheless. The lady behind the counter was very helpful in explaining the different flavors. The interior is nice and modern, with some seating to enjoy... More

Only on holidays would we have gelati for lunch, I had read about this gelateria and as it was on our way to the Pinacoteca Nazionale Bologna, we stopped in. The gelati is made on the premises, out the back of the shop, there is plenty of selections and great friendly service. The gelateria is located in a street which... More

The ice cream in Bologna is in general very good but this place is one of the best places for ice cream. It is just freshly made, creamy and delicious!

My partner and I have a serious gelati fetish. After trying 10 shops, this is definately the very best. Good selection, pure taste, generous servings, and great service by someone who cares about the gelato. Well worth searching out. Not too far from the two towers, in the university area.
