Possibly the best gelato in Viareggio...

Unique flavours, the "crema dimentica" a smooth and delicious lemon/vanilla almost as creamy as the unrivalled lemon gelato in Amalfi. Buonissimo!

Great tasting ice cream for only €1 a scoop, will definitely come back here again in the next couple of days, worth the walk from the boulevard!

By first impressions you wouldn't guess that this is such good ice cream, after all there isn't a rainbow of tempting ice cream on display, all the flavours are hidden in covered metal containers, but this is necessary as no preservatives are added to the ice cream and so it melts more quickly than the usual stuff you find, however...

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.

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
