Biggest and best

Situated in the bustling heart of Bardolino, this gelataria serves up huge ice creams at excellent prices. The flavours are amazing, my wife had pear and chocolate flavour which was really good. Great place to visit anytime but queues are huge after dinner.

I also recommend the rum and raisin gelato they have named 'Malaga'. However, there is a downside to this gelateria which is the incredibly rude staff. The girl that served me and my family did...

Best ice cream in Bardolino. This is clearly a favourite for locals and tourists alike. Great location, just beside the lake edge. It does a range of ice creams to take away and ice cream sundaes to enjoy at a table. My daughter's favourite is the Granite Fragola, a mix between a "slushy" and a sorbet.

The range and flavours of ice cream are awesome. Over ten nights four of us certainly tried many of the options and were never disappointed. Great

Great choice of flavours and portions, also get discount with Thomsons. Queues build up but they move very quickly. Can also sit in for sundaes and other food though we did not try this

Every time we visit Bardolino we always have an ice cream or 3 at this place. It's probably one of the cheapest at the resort and definitely the nicest. So many flavours!
