Try the Napoleone!

Gorgeous, flavours of ice cream which are a bit different. The Napoleone is fantastic - honey and amaretto.

There's no denying it, this is the best Gelato I've had. I spent some time in Florence seeking out the 'best' gelato places there. They were good , but nothing like my experience here. It's evident a lot of love goes into choice of ingredients (as local as possible) and the production. Don't go to Marciana Marina and miss it!!

Pistachio ice cream one of the best ever tasted. My chocolate and salted caramel was also absolutely delicious. The intensity of flavours was the thing that struck me most here. Very creamy, lovely spot to sit just outside.

The best ice cream ever! Yes that flavour is one of the ones available but I suspect I could have eaten my way through the entire menu and loved every one. This is the relocation of a business from MIlan apparently, the owner fancied an easier life and banished himself to Elba, and why wouldn't you! He was on hols... More

I read about there gelato on Trip Advisor and had to try it. I went back everyday and tried 6 flavors in total from carrot-lemon (not my favorite but A+ for creativity) to chocolate with orange peel which was unbelievable. My all time favorite was the pistachio.

Excellent ice cream all homemade. They offer excellent and also creative varieties of ice cream. Further they set hight value on ecological sound solutions. Thus, you get organic cups for instance which is also very nice. However, the biggest plus is the great ice cream of course. We tried fragola (strawberry, extremly good), cafe, chocolate, nocciolone, limone - all more... More

We were riding around Elba on a scooter when we got this idea to taste some flavours of Marciana Marina(we were staying in Porto Azzuro). This gelateria suddenly appeared in front of us and was giving the impression of a local ice cream shop, nothing fancy. We tried a few kinds but the fig was the best I've ever had.... More
