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.

A cappuccino and a plate of creamy biscotti in an Italian piazza. Need I say more. It was good value and a lovely romantic treat.

All the gelaterias we visited in italy were very good. On Cristallo we felt that the Ice Cream is a bit better then the rest. The variety of taste is bigger then most gelaterias we visited and the amount was very generous. If you are visiting the promenade in Bardolino don't pass on it.
