I m from Genova and I confirm that this is the best ice cream that you can found in my city. Flavors of first quality, extremely well done, and the prince is the lower ever seen, especially in the center city. And then the owner, Rosa, is able to make you feel the real italian welcome. She is also a... More

The lady serving was very friendly and humorous. She recommended a few of the special flavours. Loved the special I ate that day, think it's called mimosa! But it's a combination of several flavours. They have rose flavour too! A must try in Genoa.

This was our favorite gelato we had during our trip -- absolutely delicious. While every flavor my wife and I tried was excellent, I would recommend getting the lemon meringue if they have it -- superb!

We ate ice creams on various cities in Italy before. We think that there are lots of ice cream shops much better than here.

Enjoyable Gelato in this place which is well reviewed. Owner knowledgable and personable. Had the cherry Amarena and Pistaschio. Very nice and pretty cheap.

With a great pleasure went to this gelateria staying in Genoa. Great assortment, very communicative girl at this place (if you read this, we sent you positive energy).

Tucked into a cobblestone street in Genoa was this Gelato haven. There was a large range of classic and creative flavors, that apparently change all the time. The shopkeeper was fluent in many languages and was so friendly! It was also relatively cheap.

The place is really cool, it was open on 1st of May (when normally nobody is working). The "saleswoman" - I suppose the owner - can speak english, she is funny and open. We could taste every icecream before we choose. The taste of the icecreams are also undiscribable... What else I could say: TRY IT! :)

I stumbled upon this place while walking down Via Garibaldi one afternoon... Fantastic gelato, great selection of flavors, and Rosa is RIDICULOUSLY nice!! Try the amarena (sour cherry) and stracciatella... Both were exceptional. I can't wait to go back for more!
