First of the place is adorable and it is amazingly friendly. Rosa is a doll and she let us try all of the flavours before we chose what we wanted and it was very hard to choose what we wanted because every single flavour was delicious! The servings were very generous for the price and I got 3 scoopes for... More

Very good. The icecream are originals. The flavors are cool and different compared to other gelato places. One of the best gelatos I've had in Italy so far. Nice.

Rosa is not your average gelateria owner. She is very passionate about her work, and it showed as soon as we walked through the door. She let us try every flavor we wanted. In the end, we ordered the Mimosa, rose, banana, and pistachio flavors... all were amazing! Rosa even gave us some restaurant recommendations before we left. This is... More

When I entered this gelateria, I was lost. Not only did Rosa take the time to orient me in Genoa, (another customer provided an extra map), she made some additional suggestions about sites in Genoa, drawing an extra little map. Her English is excellent, she is friendly and the Mimosa gelato I left with was delicious and very unique. Next... More

The ice cream was one of the best ice cream I've ever had. And Rosa is also very kind and helpful. It was great that we find that gelateria. :)

Rosa is a lovely lady and obviously passionate about what she does. We really enjoyed her ice-creams but the ones that stand out are her special flavours of Mimosa and Ginger. The Mimosa was truly amazing and like nothing we have ever tasted. The Ginger ice-cream was strong but beautifully fragrant. The 'normal' ice cream flavours were good, but they... More

The best gelato we had on our trip, out of approximately 15 different places. Pistachio, mimosa, banana-chocolate, and yogurt were all incredible. And Rosa is simply wonderful!
