A great Ice Cream place which always had queues outside no matter the time of day or night. We also sat and had an enormous sundae for lunch which was amazing!

Yes it's mainly an ice cream place, and the ice cream in its crystal glass looks absolutely wonderful (at €7 it should), but we wanted a coffee. Well even the Americano coffee tastes better than other places! I chose Caffè Shakeroo which turned out to be iced coffee, and that was delicious. 4 people round the table could chat in... More

Stopped off for a nice cream after a short ferry ride from Garda. The choice of ice creams is amazing and reasonably priced. The"Snickers" flavour I'd just amazing. I will be having many more before the end of my holiday!

The Boss and I spent a week in Bardolino, walking past busy waiters with trays filled with very...very large bowls of ice cram delights and long (and by that I mean large) cocktails. We promised ourselves a visit before we left and we made our pilgrimage on a balmy evening the day before we left. Sitting outside, on the lakeside,... More

Firstly, the ice cream is fab - thats a given. Generally the outside seating area is busy, and often that is part of the attraction, its always buzzing. Get a table, order some Spritz, couple of whopping ice creams for the kids, or after our evening meal retire to a couple of bombardino's - fantastic. Actually even the snacks were... More

During our holiday to Bardolino we sampled lots of the many, many flavours of Gelato from Cristallo's. Got to say it is simply the best I have ever tasted. Enormous scoops, 1.50euro a scoop on either a cornet or in a tub, same price for each. One scoop was enough for me! Excellent value. Downside for obvious reasons there is... More

If you like ice cream you must visit Cristallo. The size and variety of ice cream dishes on offer are mind boggling and the taste is quite fantastic. Also Bardolino is a beautiful place with lovely shops and good restaurants.

Have visited Cristallo since I was 8, the best ice cream you can get. Went back last year and it's still the best ice cream around. A busy place and you have to stand in line for it at times but so worth it. Having your ice cream looking of Lago di Garda is the best way to enjoy it.

definitely worth a visit, and right next to the ferry terminal so great if you are waiting for a boat.

Great ice cream, huge range of flavours. You can buy a cone from the ice cream bar or sit and enjoy something larger. Beware that they have a lot of tourists wandering in to use the toilets so it can seem very busy.
