Delicious and well worth repeat visits

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!

Simply the best ice cream ever! Could not add anything else... You go to bologna and go to this place any day of the year.. In the summer it is said that the cue goes around the block... In winter just of a couple hundreds of meters... Chocolate/rum/hazelnut ... To die for! No questions asked ... Is the best ice... More

This gelati just blew my mind. Wow. It was simply the best gelati we've ever had. We tried a few flavours from the friendly staff and had to buy much bigger sizes each than we had wanted so that we could have more delicious flavours. They were all amazing, and many of them very unusual and innovative as well. I... More

Excellent gelato! Very creamy and the flavours were rich and satisfying. I tried San Luca which was fantastic - white chocolate with puffed rice - smooth, sweet and the rice crispies were a great touch. Also had bacio which had whole hazelnuts and rich chocolate. Definitely recommend this gelateria.

We heard about this gelateria from the intern at our hotel. She is from Turkey and was trying to eat at every gelateria in Bologna. This was her favorite. We had readthat the best place in Italy for gelato is Florence. We got to Florence a week after this and nothing in Florence was close and we ate at their... More

Granted flavours exceptional but prices have increased every year ad portion sizes definately much smaller. They don't give a wafer biscuit on top as well! Would recommend the effort of trying out the other ice cream shops in Bologna which are just as good/some better!

I really recommend, the best cremeria in Bologna. While visiting the old town you have to try it. Next to small, charming park, where you can sit and rest. White chocolate + berries - the best combination.
