Try the Biscotti icecream, it is like nothing else! The queue outside the doors is a good sign of how good the icecream is. It is clearly a local favourite!

Went there during my holiday and fell in love with the place! Absolutely delicious ice cream... Especially the fruity flavours made with real fruit! Quite a long outside but going very fast, just waited couple of minutes to get served by the lovely staff. Well done guys... Keep up the hard work!

We have stayed in this little beautiful city Pietra Ligure several summers, and our favorite place to find gelato is this place. Try the different flavours and I think you not will be disappointed. My best choice: fragola.

Came back here, after years, and enjoyed my ice-cream as much as first time. Delicious! Huge portions, huge choice. Plus you get a smile for free, and small advice about best way to take to atractions (we asked about some). Loved it.
