Possibly the Best Ice Cream...........

2 euros for a double scoop of some of the best ice cream I have ever tasted. Black Cherry and Malaga was my favourite. Mouth watering. Worth the walk up to the top of Bellagio a dozen times for just one double scoop of this nectar. The only problem was the number of days in Bellagio and the number... read more

I had the grapefruit (Pomola Rosa) and my friend had a cherry one. Both were delicious, certainly worth the trip to the top of the arcades.

Absolutely worth the steps and worth the search. You will not be disappointed by the choice of gelatos here. I got the fig gelato and pistachio which were divine. The tiramisu and cafe were really really good as well. Nice to go here when the suns going down and the whole town almost shines golden.

The gelato gets a 5 and it's only 2 bucks... It's half the price it is Texas and easily twice as good. The value was so good I laughed at the women when she asked for 2 euro. They could easily charge double but don't and are super nice. The value proposition cannot be beat. We tried hazelnut (noccical?) kaffe,... More

Good gelato, pistachio from Bronte was very good as well as the licorice. Staff was helpful and friendly and the indulged our Italian. It is not on TripAdvisor but across the road and down just a few buildings is Pasticceria Castelli. The biscotti bellagino and brutti ma buoni are very good.

Really nice gelateria right in the centre of town. Plenty of choice, good service. A short walk from the park to sit down and enjoy your ice cream.

Maybe we missed something, but this place was nothing special. Certainly not as flavorful or creamy as we have experienced (or come to expect) from Italian gelato.

We just took an eleven day trip to Italy, staying in Lake Como, Florence, Siena, Rome and Milan. We had Gelato at least once a day, if not twice. (I know, that's a bit much, but what the heck). Of all the Gelaterias in all those cities, this was by far the best. The gelato was homemade, fluffy, fresh and... More
