Highly recommended to me by a local lady.

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... read 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...

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
