Gelato with a difference!

What a lovely find through Trip Advisor! You'll find this gelateria down a side alley - not too far from the Ferrari Fountain. They offer a varied and unusual selection of ice creams to tempt the taste buds- (you can try before you buy). Some flavours on offer included pink peppercorn, ginger and... read more

We stopped in per trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We were given a few tastes- which yielded is both trying new flavors. The chocolate fondant is award winning and was very rich but amazing. The mint chocolate chip was so refreshing. Prices were also competitive, so go find this gelato store!

Best ice creams in life so far! Pistacchio and italian creme flavours in particular. Highly recommended while staying in Genoa.

We ate gelato all over Liguria; some of the gelato shops we tried get high ratings on Tripadvisor, but seemed just alright. The gelato here was hands down the best we had on our trip. Really wonderful. Some of the flavours (marked in the ice cream display) have won prizes at Gelato competitions, and the gelato is really of that... More

We only had a day in Genoa and saw reviews that this was the best in the city. It did not disappoint! We we're able to try every gelato in town but this one was excellent!

I've been living in Genova for 4 years now and this is my go-to gelateria whenever I am in the centre and have a craving for gelato. Every single friend I've brought here (even Italians) have loved the gelato! The gelato master is friendly and obviously loves his ice-creams! I love that he pairs some flavours together that are not... More

I recently stayed in Genoa for 6 nights and found this place on my second day. The gelato was so good, I returned every day for the rest of my stay. I loved the interesting flavours like rosemarin and pepe rosa. So good. My only regret is not finding it on my first day!

Have eaten ice cream in many parts of Italy, all claiming to be the best. I am not a great ice cream fan, but the strawberry was superb. Staff very friendly and helpful. Speak English and will explain the flavours. Going back tomorrow.

This had it all, from flavours to satisfy the bambini to some gems like lemon zest and sage, rosemary, ginger and cinnamon. So whereas I skip ice cream I had to get stuck in. The owner of this small establishment is there to give you some tasters and leaves you to eat whilst he goes and makes up a new... More
