I have been tasting ice cream in different gelaterias all over Italy. This one is not the worst but far away from the best ones. The quality is average, the prices are high and the seller puts very small portion. It looks like he is extremely saving the ice cram. Taking into consideration the price needed to manufacture the product,... More

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

My wife and I have enjoyed the gelato here for a decade. Of all the gelato we have tasted in Italy, this place ranks in the top two. It's definitely the best in Vernazza. Try the cantaloupe, coffee and chocolate. This place is a must in Vernazza!

After plenty of fun in the sun & playing in the water, we went to buy some gelato. Just thinking about it again makes me want to go back to Vernazza! The mango gelato is so flavorful & delicious as well as the pistachio but the mango by far, was my favorite. My son raved about the chocolate too. I... More

I have no idea how this fellow gets his particular gelato to be so intensely flavorful. His pricing is the same as everywhere else, but after you try his stuff you will go nowhere else!

This is my favourite gelato. The chocolate is rich and out of this world. Lemon and banana/kiwi is heaven. A must try in Vernazza 😍

Location: Vernaza, in the Cinque Terre. Food: Strictly gelato and perfect for a pit stop, post trek. I tried the fragola (strawberry) and ambrogio (nuts, cream, chocolate). Both were delicious and refreshing. They offered a variety of flavours to suit pretty much anyone. The place: It's tiny so the line up backs out into the street. This isn't a sit... More

The cinnamon and chocolate were both very good and the coffee flavour was wonderful - I would definitely recommend you try them..

We got gelato everywhere we went and this place did not disappoint. It was so yummy. Plus a great view when you walk out with your gelato.
