The venue may seem spare and industrial, but the view in the gelato bins is rich, rich, rich. Despite a reviewer's concern that the product might not meet euro-fat content norms for gelato, I taste tested both sorbetti and gelati--no complaint. Was wowed by the exotic options--kafir lime, celery, a fab green tea, chocolate cinnamon--I tasted. Too good to pass... More

I am a gelato enthusiast and I know most of gelateria shops in Viareggio. I have been recently addressed to this gelateria by a friend... result: a-ma-zing! Really one of the best ice-cream I ever had. The choice of flavours is quite exclusive (though I missed some classics) but the flavours are not so important when there is a solid... More

Could not believe an ice cream shop does not have vanilla on sale. Plenty of other concoctions. Was OK.

We went herel three evenings after dining out, no need to eat dessert when you could have ice cream like this. We tried new flavours every time except for our daughter who fell in love with Nutella and Strawberry, all delicious, sorry we ran out of time to go through them all.

Made all other ice cream sampled in tuscany on our visit seem very lacklustre. Never been so excited about a pot of ice cream before. Really nice guy too. If your in Viareggio dont miss it, probably the best thing about the town.

We stumbled upon this hidden gem during our last night in Viareggio and were definately NOT disappointed. The ice cream maker (not sure what his title is) was very friendly and told us about how he makes new ice cream in his two machines (that are located next to the shop, with a window so that you can watch him...
