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

We stumbled into this gelateria owned by Moreno & Barbara, a charming husband & wife team - and we were not disappointed in the least. The artisan gelato is freshly made with real ingredients (not flavor extracts), and interesting ones at that (rosemary, ginger, Baileys, Crema di Whisky, etc.). Traditional flavors are a-plenty too, including a dark chocolate made without... More

We've found that place accidentally, just walking around. And when we tried to find it two days after, it was not easy. There is no special sign, just one door and one window in the ordinary old building. Perfect choice of gelato. If you have time, you can watch how gelato is created.

I do not see why this place has so many positive evaluations. I had a cone with to flavours: the lemon was so-so, the fig was plainly bad, it tasted of butter. Far below the ice-cream parlour in Piazza delle Erbe.
