Best gelato in Bellagio!

We were in Italy a total of 16 days, and we ate gelato every day! Our family of 4 each got a different flavor and we tried each other's. While we did end up finding another gelateria that we liked better in Florence, Gelateria del Borgo was a solid second place out of the 9 or 10 places that we... read more

This is not real gelato, period. They use cheap ice cream, they only allow one taste of their favors and their gelato is made with artificial ingredients. You can tell by the color of their pistachio gelato- it's fluorescent green! It should be a muddy green/ brown. We asked for a taste of one flavor, didn't like it and wanted... More

If you are in Italy for any length of time, be it a day or a week, you will undoubtedly sample many different types of gelato. I have never had any that have been unacceptable, until Gelateria del Borgo. I generally find trip advisor reviews to be fairly accurate when a number of people give a place the same high... More

It is what you would expect from a gelateria in Italy, but rarely find. Good value and good selection of flavours

I stayed one week in Bellagio and went everyday for dessert in this gelateria which is the best in town. There are always big line at the door but the wait is worth the wait

This gelateria was recommended to us by the owner of the B&B where we stayed - and we are so glad we dropped into the place. The gelato here is truly awesome. It seems to be a family run place. The ice cream in a biscuit and the other frozen desserts in the refrigerator are also great - we tried... More

Yum yum. Hit the spot. A bit of a queue but worth it. Reasonably priced and fancy chocolate cones if you want them. A good range of ice cream and sorbet.

I had chocolate fondante and crostata. So delicious. The man in the shop is such a gentleman. I dropped my ice cream and he insisted on giving me another at no cost. In a town with so many tourists I have been taken aback by the local people's patience and kindness.

Very happy to have stopped by after dinner for a three flavoured gelati! Boisonberry, chocolate and amareno, just delicious. A must try for gelati fans.

I have extensively surveyed gelato and ice cream parlors, and while this was not the "best gelato ever", as others have claimed here, it is very, very good. So good, that after our first evening, we vowed to return on our two remaining days in Bellagio...and did. The flavor selection is somewhat typical, rotating daily, and our favorite was probably...
