Best cremeria in Bologna

I've tried most of the gelaterie and cremerie in Bologna and la Funivia is by far the best in the city. The quality is top and the staff are very professional and friendly. Try the chocolate and rum flavour, as well as Alice (marscapone with some liquid chocolate at the bottom of the cup). Also... read more

Stopped in for a post lunch gelato and we were glad we did. The fruit flavors, especially the pear and and the banana were some the best I have ever had...like biting into the perfectly ripe fruit themselves. My sons had straticella and raved. There is a nice park across the street where you can sit and enjoy the gelato... More

This was the best gelato we had in Italy. Hands down. Easily accessible right in the heart of Bologna. Nothing can be said to describe the creaminess of this other worldly gelato. The coconut and pistachio are phenomenal. The coffee and bacio are outstanding. The chocolate fondente is incomparable. There were lines almost every time we went (and we went... More

We ate a lot of good gelato in Italy, but this by far was the best one. Part of the reason was the Alice flavor, a creamy vanilla-mascarpone flavor with an incredibly, high quality melted chocolate sauce Locating this gorgeous modern venue is a little challenging to locate on Piazza Cavour, but not do not miss this!

One of the best things cooking instructor did (in my opinion), was introduce us to the best gelato on this trip. My friend once told me, "I am not normally a gelato person, but somehow in Italy, gelato just seems to taste better". I was skeptical at first, but now I am in whole hearted agreement. I made it a...

The best ice cream in Bologna with out a doubt. Maybe even ever! So smooth and creamy. And a great choice of flavours too.

We've had gelato everyday in Italy for 3 weeks and this was a stand out. Can't believe how lucky we were to stumble across it! If you visit Bologna you have to give this a try.

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

If you can make it here, this gelato is to die for!!! It is creamy, rich in flavor and utterly delicious. The flavours were in Italian but I know one was hazelnut - sooooo yummmyyyy!!!!!. Just park me at the counter and keep them coming. These were so good and I was making it my mission to try all the... More

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.
