Wow! Best gelato I've ever tasted!

No matter where you are in Viareggio, this place is worth the trip. Helpful friendly staff will explain the flavours to you (in Italian or English) and they have a flavour of the moment too. The gelato was so soft, light and smooth and it's all made on the premises. Lovely variety of flavours... read more

It was the best ice cream I had in my life. It was homemade fresh and you could see how they make it.

Finally we went to taste this fabulous gelato, but the portions are half of what we normally receive everywhere else. Come on!

A local lady recommended this place which is just the next street over from the main road beside the passeggio. It was easy to find and yes, they speak very good English. The place was beautiful and sparkling clean. I had the medium cup with 3 flavours. All natural and absolutely the best gelato I ate during my entire stay... More

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...

If you are already near this place, you have to visit and taste some icecream - not the best I have ever had, but very good quality
