Gelato “to die for” and their ice slushies are good too.

We patronised this gelataria several times during our stay in Bellagio. My wife took a particular liking to the “menta” flavour gelato. I personally developed quite a liking for their lime flavoured ice-slushies. Both of these treats were particularly refreshing in the very warm and humid weather... read more

Typical gelateria, they had a pretty good selection of flavors, but I've had better. It was hot outside so I thought it would taste fantastic, but it was ok....tasted like regular ice cream. By the way, and I guess this is a good thing, I saw the owner of the restaurant La Grotta come by and pick up some gelato... More

This is a great gelateria in the centre of Bellagio. They have a number of different flavours which rotate daily and also homemade cornettos and lollies. Very reasonable prices, too!

I was here with my family and girlfriend, we ate a lot of great ice!! Tasted like homemade ice cream, nothing like at home.. And the best part of it, ice cream for four persons, only 10 euro!!! Totally worth it!!

Walking by right during opening time, we were not aware of the popularity of this gelateria until we searched it on TripAdvisor (after leaving Italy!) There was a great range of flavours available, and after waking up at 6am for the morning lake Como tour, this was the most refreshing and delicious early-morning replenishment I could have asked for. Their... More

Hey...what's Italy without gelato? While there were many places that sold gelato, this place was the best. Apart from very pleasant servers, they had a great selection that changed daily. Also, the prices were reasonable and did not seem to have the tourist-premium attached. Take a walk, enjoy the sites and do so with a gelato from here. You will... More

Have read some of the other reviews about this place and whether it's real gelato or not, we thought it was delicious. Enjoyed eating from here every night and ate a variety of different flavours. Excellent value and highly recommended.

Lovely little place, hazelnut my favourite with fig a close second. Lots of others to choose from. Only down side is we struggled to find somewhere nearby to sit to eat out quickly melting gelato ( we did find a wall by the church in the end)

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
