I went back to Pisa last month, First thing i did on arriving was to go to the Coltelli i was lucky enough they had grapefruit again because they change every week... read more

I had a chocolate gelato and absolutely loved it. Didn't think it was that expensive either. Located right by the Arno river. Staff speaks English, which is a plus! Worth checking it out.

Good little place right off of the river to grab some gelato. nothing out of the ordinary just a nice place to stop. no seating at all besides a small bench out front. Best to get your scoop and walk around. Gelato was smooth and creamy. definitely gald we stopped there and would most likely return if we were in... More

If you are looking for an ice-cream mystical experience this is the place! They don't have the regular flavours, everything is special and made with the ingredients of the season, it's kind of a lottery, but you will never disappointed! It's a bit more pricey than the other ice cream shops, but it's worthy!

Hi Giulia D, thank you, we love the mystical experience thing! As you were saying, some flavors are quirky and we can say that we have a sort of a la carte menu, but we invite everyone to taste as much flavors as you want before ordering the gelato! Grazie ancora Giulia, speriamo di vederti presto, il 18-19 maggio resteremo... More

We took an icecream each (2 flavours) and then went for a refill. We had pineapple, kiwi, lemon... it was just eating the fruit itself, but in a creamy state :) Salty caramel is also a nice flavour, not too sweet. And always plenty of people, you must be patient, but the reward is worth it!

This place is amazing. All natural ingredients, unique flavors like licorice, ginger and whatever they create in the "lab" in the back of the store, and it's also cheap. I've neve had gelato this smooth and flavorful, and I've had gelato all over the world (lots of it). If you are in Pisa, DO NOT pass this place up. Just... More

There's no other place yet in this world, where I've found the excellent balance between the right amount of ingredients, temperature, texture and quality of ice cream. It's a combination of taste and superior ITALIAN homemade tradition. Buonissimo!

A really good and solid pick in Pisa. The gelato here definitely reflects the high quality of the ingredients. Walnut was amazingly good, one of the best gelato flavors I ever purchased. I had slightly higher expectations for the dark chocolate, since it was advertised as made with chocolate from De Bondt, one of the top chocolatiers in Italy: Good,... More

We went in here the 4 of us for some dessert and coffee. What a treat. Rows and Rows of Gelato and were they ever good. Found this place by a happy accident and was it worth the effort.

Hi dgg123, we are happy that you run into our gelateria! Maybe you didn't find an espresso or a coffee, but a gelato is always welcome, isn't it? Best regards! More
