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!

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
