We arrived here with great expectations but is a CREAM !!! Moreover, normal with a decent quality and cleanliness but I do not think you should be at restaurants

Perfect Italiaan ice. The best in Fano. Have to taste it, awesome! Kids love it, want to go there everyday. Cinnamon ice is the best.

Our favorite gelato in all of Italy and we've been here a year! Always ask what's new or special, there are always surprises. Fresh, all natural, made the traditional way. No smurf ice cream here! They will give gelato making classes if you have a sizable group and a location.

I have lived for several years and tried most gelateria but Maki is my favorite. The quality of the ice cream, the flavors, the location and the staff are all top notch, an essential stop for anyone visiting Fano. Also the lady owner speaks lovely English.

This gelateria is slightly off the beaten track in Fano and it did take us a little while to find it, but it was definitely worth the search! Great flavours, excellent quality and a lovely premises on one of Fano's less touristy piazzas: perfect for a cooling granita after a long day at the beach.

Having tried all the other ice cream shops in Fano I can now frankly say that this is the ONLY ice cream shop that uses 100 % natural ingredients. The ice cream is by itself so tasty that there is no need for any food additives such as E-numbers, fillers and artificial flavourings etc. I love how each flavour tastes... More

this is - in fact - the BEST gelato in Italy! Fabulous traditional flavors + imaginative, subtle new ones; all served with a warm hospitality befitting the cold deliciousness they create. Right near the center of Fano, which is itself a delightful discovery - but start and end your visit with a trip to Maki and then see if you... More
