Delicious

The gelato here was so amazing that we went back twice in 2 days. I definitely recommend the San Luca (white chocolate) flavour.

What a fun hobby....enjoying the best gelato throughout Italy. We may have found it in Bologna at Cremeria Funivia (or at least a tie with Vivoli in Florence). Don't miss their gelato, and then a block away have an espresso or cocktails in the Piazza Galvani at a great cafe, Zanarini.

I think this place is in the top two or three ice cream places in the city. All of the flavours I've had have been exceptional, but the fruit flavours here are particularly good! The staff have always been friendly, polite and helpful when I've been, and are happy to help you make your choice if you want a recommendation.... More

One of the 2 best gelaterias in whole Italy! (other one is Santo Stefano, in Bologna too). You can see in front of you how the ice cream is being mixed with the huge stick - for me this is an indication of the highest league.

Find this parlor. Old school method, you cannot see the ice-cream but just the list of flavors. All properly covered with the perfect cooling conditions. The kind of place that is quite rare these days. Still, uber modern and following standard pricing- by scoop. Long lines but stay, try, and return. AMAZING.

Not in the most prominent of Bologna's location, this gelateria is worth seeking out for its amazing flavours. Our family of five has sampled many gelatos in Northern and Southern Italy, and Cremeria Funivia certainly ranks in our top two.

Absolutely the best ice cream in Bologna; I walked from place to place, trying all the ice cream I had recommended by locals and TripAdvisor, and nothing beat this place. Must try!
