Delicious!

You must try this place, the owner is so friendly and welcoming. They have more traditional flavours and there are stunning! We came here almost every night during our stay!

Yummy gelato -- chocolate was my favourite! Grab a cup or cone and sit out on the rocks and enjoy the view. Perfect way to end a day of hiking!

We were staying in Vernazza, and decided to get some gelato before hiking to Corniglia. I bought a small, but needed to sit on a bench outside the shop, so I could finish my cup, and buy another one for the walk since it was so good !!

Really good gelato. Fresh and tasty. shame they are in the same town as Gelateria Vernazza. Still, the best view to enjoy an excellent gellato...

Didn't read any reviews before we went in here, but saw that their pistachio was their specialty and decided to try it. AMAZING. So creamy, rich and delicious. My favorite gelato I've had in all of Italy so far!

This is one of the best Gelaterias I have ever visited. The product was great and the selections unbelievable. A little high in price but well worth it, There are many Gelaterias in Vernazza to chose from but I highly recommend this one.

Stopped here for a break after walking from Corniglia and headed to Monterosso. Despite its harbour location, the gelatos are delicious. Had the hazelnut, licorice and cinnamon flavours. All made with real, fresh spices, nuts and roots so it is natural tasting as it should. Not too sweet either.

Just grabbed Gelato here and walked over to the end of the pier for the view. Gelato was really terrific. Had their Ambrosia flavor + the custard; and also tried their Hazelnut and Pistacchio. Both were terrific. Definitely will be back here to try some of the other flavors.

The gelato was excellent, but the server wouldn't allow any tasting, even when you'd already bought a serving. For those of us who haven't tried every fruit and nut under the sun, this was a little stingy imo. Other than that, a great place to stop at the end of the day and cool off with a delicious treat.
