This place was right below our apartment. We especially liked the owner and the cinnamon gelato was my favorite. We only wished they were open longer at night!

Not sure what all the fuss is about. Didn't particularly enjoy my flavour or what my partner had and the cone was downright cheap.

Wow ...the Gelato was amazing! We were lucky enough to stay in the property next door and wandering past the store, any time of the day, without popping in for a cornet was impossible to resist. Amazing flavours, fabulous location right beside the harbour, and Paulo, who helps run the family business, is a terrific guy who takes great pride... More

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). Rich fruity flavours and super creamy coconut. And you have to try the cinnamon. Never had that flavour before but it was wholesome and smooth. Highly... More

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.
