Truly, the best chocolate I've ever had! There are two locations. The one in town has amazing chocolates--especially hot chocolate. The other one, which is a bit off the beaten path, has the most amazing dark chocolate gelato ever.

This review is for August 2013 which was our most recent visit, but we've been going to this place for more than 10 years now and it never disappoints. The quality of the gelato, especially pistachio, dark chocolate and hazelnut, is amazing, and has remained constant over the years. The chocolates are excellent too, as other reviewers have mentioned, but... More

Hands down the most amazing gelato in Perugia, and the best I've had in Italy so far. Dark chocolate cherry flavor is incredible!

We were told by 30-year residents that this is the best gelato to be found in Perugia, and I can't argue. If you face out from the Universitá toward the basketball courts, with the tabaccheria on your left and the Estruscan gate on your right, walk down the street to your one o'clock. You may recognize the store front easily... More

We were looking for something sweet and we asked a shopkeeper for a chocolate shop. Trust me, I love chocolate and this is worth the trip to Umbria. Oh so fresh, lovely, unforgettable.

The gelato was very good, especially the chocolate cherry! We also bought a jar of dark chocolate sauce to bring home. It was so good warmed and poured over vanilla ice cream!

I stopped here almost every day for a month and I believe I tried most of their gelato flavors, as well as some of their single portion semi-freddi (or semi-frozen desserts) and bonbons. The gelato is the best in Perugia and definitely worth the visit! My favorite is by far the chocolate mousse, which I have not seen elsewhere in... More

OH MY G!! This is the place to go for the most delish gelato ever. The shop is small but as they say all good things come in small packages. They have a wide variety of gelato and even chocolate which you can have packaged as gifts. If you prefer they also have prepackaged chocolate with Perugian scenes on the... More

Not just the best gelato I had while in Italy, but the best gelato I have ever had ever in my entire life. It was a revelation.
