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 frizzy chocolate. It's worth checking on the... 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!

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!
