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

Was offered many ice cream to try out even before asking. Thought was a nice gesture. The ginger ice cream was very interesting, especially for people who like ginger. Else yogurt, melon, and many more. Good way to end a meal with. It's along a narrow alley.

The owner was very kind and let us try different flavors, I would have never try the ginger flavor but it was outstanding ... The fruit flavors were also amazing, but I chose the non classic ones ginger included :-) the store is in a secluded area but worth the effort.

Each time we visit Italy we check Tripadvisor to find the nicest ice-cream shops available, and we are always lucky - but this time we struck gold! Just so you can imagine how much we liked them (and how friendly they are, because they don't hesitate to propose a free tasting) we tried FIFTEEN flavours in one day, both the... More

Homemade ice creams made in the store. Extra dark chocolate and cherry were both amazing. Must try. The owner was very kind. Tucked in a small alley but worth finding.

A post-dinner pit-stop brought us to this tiny ice-cream shop that hides a pearl in matters of taste. I took an hazelnut ice-cream so good and if I wasn't that full I would have bought a second one! Advised!!

I love the creativity and selection of flavors. The flavors are very intense and fresh. The orange was fantastic. I also liked the rosemary.

I'll admit that we only went here because of the reviews on TA. You'll need a city map to find it as its tucked down one of the tiny side streets not far from the cathedral. To be honest I'm a bit of a fraidy cat & fund them a bit intimidating but they're fine during the day. We weren't... More
