A little extra

Of the 5 top gelaterias in the city, this was the only one we tried twice. The flavors we tasted were as good as any, and the prices are a bit cheaper than the shops down town even-though the cones are filled with chocolate and a little cone is added on top.

Great choice of flavours, both classical and specialities. I had the specialities -ricotta with figs and strawberry cheesecake, hubby had the lime and pineapple & basil sorbets which was excellent. Price/portion good!

The gelato here is pretty good but the granita is outstanding! It's pretty rare to find a Lemon Granita good how they make it. You really taste the lemons on the ice! The Strawberry one is pretty good too. If you wanna something of refreshing and delicious, this is the place to fight the heat!
