We ate gelato here a few times because it was so good! Tried most of the flavours. The berry ones were amazing! Worth a visit

Came across this place quite by accident and what a find! Easily the best ice cream we have ever had in Italy (Simple Ice cream in UK is by far the all time favourite).

We had to wait on a line, but it moved quickly and the man serving was friendly and seemed happy to help everyone. the cream flavor and the tiramisu were both excellent. highly recommend a stop here if you are in Vernazza. the location is right near the boat dock.

Wonderful gelato. You can taste the difference in flavor and quality between theirs and other shops. Wish I could go back for more!
