What a shame!!

It's a pity, gelateria Carosello doesn't exist anymore😫😪. According to a local store they went back to Italy due to bad location. We feel sorry for them.

Gelateria Carosello is tucked away up a street which runs off the main square. In one corner of the square you will see the Indian Raj restaurant (the one with the yellow sign outside and a roof terrace). Walk up past this restaurant and along Rua Alves Correia for about 100 yards and you will find the ice cream parlour... More

It's the best homemade Italian Ice Cream Shop in Albufeira. Real Italian Gelato, with great flavors. I love their pancakes with fresh homemade ​​pasta. They use real fruit. Dario, the waiter is always smiling. They have a nice colour lighted sign with the word Carosello.
