I had gelato here every day I stayed in Vernazza. I also had gelato at one of the other establishments in Vernazza (after already having my daily fix here!) and this place was definitely better. Great selection. I must have tried about 8 flavours. They were all great! Sometimes there's a queue here. Don't be deterred... Join it! This might... More

There are three gelaterria in Vernazza, and all three offer excellent gelato at good prices. But Il Porticciolo is in a class of is own with high quality ingredients and particularly intense fruit flavors. It's not just the best gelato in Vernazza but possibly in the entire Cinque Terre.

We were recommended this gelateria and it did not dissapoint! A few classic flavours and some innovative. Don't miss the liquorice, pistachio and cinnamon.

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
