This is the oldest and most traditonal ice-cream place in Tropea and it has unique flavours of ice-cream you can try like Red onion, Tuna, Spicy Chilli, Seppia..these are used in fine cuisine in between courses but they are fun to try for themselves and the red onion which is the main produce of Tropea known in the whole world,...

Seriously, I don't get how this place can have such good ratings? It was way too expensive considering the amount of ice cream you actually got, it barely tasted anything and my waffle cone was antique. This is surely a trap for tourists!

If you are strolling in Tropea, Tonino's is the heart of the town. It's been so long since I've been there that the memories aren't about the quality of the gelato (which I have to believe was excellent), but about Tonino taking the time to chat with us and make recommendations, sitting outside the gelateria and people-watching, and just the...

You can chose among a huge variety of flavours and eat very good artigianal ice-creams. It's one of the oldest gelateria in town. Just try!

Very cheerful service, but the icecream itself was slightly disturbing: of course Tropea onions in icecream has something experimental to it, but in this case the combination of very sweet creamy ice with bits of cooked onion was simply unpleasant. Equally the melon ice was overly sweet.

Tonino's nocciolata, tartufo and manderla, absolutely wonderful each. And the Master himself, a great person. And if you're on a bizarre mood, try onion or n'duja.

This was a repeat visit to Tonino's, following several previous holidays on which we enjoyed the numerous flavours Tonino offers, along with his trademark charm and excellent service. His manner is fantastic with children and adults alike and the ice creams themselves are fanastically flavoursome, ranging from pistacchio and hazelenut to onion (!), along wth fruit and chocolate classics.
