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.

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.

The traditional strawberry, mango, chocolate flavors were amazing. We also tried the rosemary, Nocciola (hazelnut) which were amazing too.The streets of Genoa are... More

So good. First night I had unusual flavors - corn, rosemary and date - the next (I went back the following day it was so good) more traditional, all incredibly delicious. Also amazingly priced. Go. You will not regret it.
