MY FAVORITE ICE CREAM & SORBET IN GENEVA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Always fresh, always delicious, always of the perfect consistency and temperature!!!! They offer ice cream, sorbets and frozen yogurt. Have never encountered a single - horror of frozen horrors! - ice crystal or any other common frozen-treat disappointment. Every month there are new flavours to... read more

Always fresh, always delicious, always of the perfect consistency and temperature!!!! They offer ice cream, sorbets and frozen yogurt. Have never encountered a single - horror of frozen horrors! - ice crystal or any other common frozen-treat disappointment. Every month there are new flavours to try. My favourite flavours are Ricotta&Fig and Raspberry&Rosemary, but EVERYTHING is delicious.

Awesome place with awesome ice cream! 5 stars to that. I tried the nutella and melon flavors. Melon is really like the fruit and nutella... Is fantastic.

We had to stand in line at the Paquis branch but it was worth waiting for. The chocolate ice cream is as good as it gets. So much so, that I brought one back home - chocolate and coffee mixed. My husband decided to get a litre and chose five different flavours. I had a taste of some of them... More

It has the perfect amount of flavours and a nice variety. I feel that for an expensive city such as Geneva, this place offers a very good price in function of the quantity served. I had chocolate and mango ice cream and I think that in my entire life I've rarely had better.

Absolutely perfect gelato in two separate locations in Geneva. Fanciful flavors catering to all tastes - from the chocolatey and nutty to a wide range of sorbets made with real fresh fruit - this is the best, most refreshing homemade ice cream in the city. Manu has one location in the Paquis and one on Rue de Carouge. Both places... More

I needed to write this review because I think Manu Il Gelato Italiano deserves it. I have tried lots of ''authentic'', ''best'', ''customers's choce'' home made, italian ice creams and neither of those is even close to this one. Best taste, consistency, great ideas for mixtures. Ideal. Now i go there every day. Not to mention that the staff is... More

hands down the best icecream in Geneva. Don't waste time and calories with other icecreams. Try the pistacchio and dark chocolate.. it is like eating the real ingredient cold. amazing.

Best ice cream experience outside Italy. Well, sort of outside. It's an Italian ice cream shop in Geneva. Amazing flavors, super creamy "artisanal" ice cream.

Best ice cream in the world. Once we tried it, we became obsessed with it. Very large scoops, and they even have pots for take ice cream home. Prices are average for Switzerland.

Without hesitation Manu sells the best ice-cream in Geneva. The service is friendly and the prices are correct... this being Geneva.
