The line says it all

We had to wait 5-8 minutes to get someone to take our order. We were able to sample a few of the flavors. All crazy good. It was nice to do take away and sit by the river and watch the people go by. Enjoy!

Any word would not be enough. Just try the ice cream or the Granita. I went to Pisa few days for work and went there every night

Perfect chocolate ice cream and amazing salty ice cream with Maldon salt! Several locals told us it is the best in Pisa ;) we have been little bit disappointed after visiting the Tower and Dom, which were sooooo full of tourist, but this ice cream made our day better!

This was the first gelato we had in Italy, and it was a perfect way to start our Italian holiday. I had two scoops, one of which was lemon - yummy, so refreshing! - and the other was chocolate - rich, decadent, amazing! Buy some and eat it while walking by the river. Doesn't get much better than that. We... More

Hi KyraTaylo, thank you so much for this rich review and you are right, for our gelato and granita we only use fresh, seasonal fruit, we really can't bear syrup or industrial formulas. Warm regards! More

I've visited a number of ice cream places in Pisa and I think this is my favourite. A constantly changing selection and, as the containers have lids, you either need to translate from the menu, ask for a suggestion or have a little sample. I really enjoyed the amaretti and the salted caramel. There is a tiny seating area -... More

This place was recommended to me by a friend who was here before. I did expect to like it (she has good taste), but I never expected it to amaze me like this. Everything they make (icecream and granite) is 100% natural, made in house. If you're ever in Pisa, don't pass by this place.

I discovered this gelateria in 2009, and I rememember still the taste so sweet of grapefruit and strongly close to the fresh fruit! 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 according to the seasons and...

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.
