One of the best ice creams I have ever had

We came here based on a recommendation by an Italian friend. He was not wrong. What better way to end your day of sightseeing by having a delicious authentic ice cream. The staff were great and let us try many flavours prior to us making up our minds. The flavours and textures of our ice creams... read more

As a local, I have been visiting De' Coltelli many times and believe it to have the best quality ice-cream ("gelato") in town. The gelateria is located in Lungarno Pacinotti, two minutes from Piazza Garibaldi and Ponte di Mezzo, in the centre of Pisa. There are a couple of seating places in front of it, but if the weather is... More

A bit hard to figure out which flavor to get 'cause there're no English/ pictures avail. Luckily, the lady behind the Counter was super friendly & willing to make recommendations. The gelato was made with natural ingredients & very yummy! Recommended.

Gem of an ice cream shop off the main road in Pisa. Traditional, authentic italian ice cream that must be tasted.

It was the first place in Pisa, where I had eaten ice creams. They were tasty, but I expected something more. Service couldn't help us in choosing the best flavour and we have a problem with communicating to each other. Nocciola was very good!

We have had granita many places all over Italia, including in Sicilia. Most of the stuff you get on the mainland is like shaved ice, but this place had authentic granita that rivaled the best we had on the Cyclops' island. Highly recommended!

Choose from a wide range of gelato and have it in a cup, cone, brioche or biscotti. The mint and cucumber slushie was particularly refreshing for the hot weather.

Once you discover this place you'll find yourself returning for gelato every day :) We found actual bits of fruit in the fruit-flavour gelato, just as a re-assurance that it is made of real fruit. Great variety, generous portions, reasonable prices, what else can I say? This gelateria is a must if you're in Pisa!

REAL Ice cream! Not the bought in crap in tubs that you get everywhere else, but authentic, real ingredients home made, amazing - we loved it. The server was happy to run through everything in English and we decided on a licorice, vanilla and chocolate. Highly recommended.

We had the chocolate gelato which was really good quality, you could taste the intensity of the chocolate. However the service was not that great (not a single smile!) and the serving was small for the price. If you go elsewhere in Italy you could get more gelato which tastes just as good for the same price.
