Good Ice cream for a high price

I used to love to visit Stavoltas on a hot day in Egypt. But it takes a big chunk out of my pay check. I now only go a few times during the year when friend want to visit and get something. I have found a cheaper place that has more variety.

If you think Egypt lives on cheese, dodgy meat and fried things, think again! Technically I think some Italian jobby has had a huge influence here (Hence the name for a start) but the taste is to die for. I have been lucky enough to have been brought up as a seasoned traveler,I know my way round a decent Gelati... More

Stavolta is an amazing little gelateria in Maadi, and it is the one of the only places you will ever get this quality of Icecream! Stavolta only make fresh, delicious icecream, made with no additives or preservatives, and better than any other iceacream I have ever tasted, including all the big chains like "Cold Stone" They ALWAYS have new flavors...

What's really different about this shop, is that there ice cream is homemade. You can actually see them making it in front of you. In addition to the standard flavors, some other flavors are removed or added depending on the season. This is really interesting actually because you get to try new items every time you visit. I strongly recommend... More

Stavolta is by far the best gelato (no ice cream) in cairo, most authentic having best flavors and they change flavors everyday which they make fresh everyday. Best and only gelato by far!

Hands down the best Gelato in Egypt. I especially recommend any fruit based gelato, made of real fresh fruits. To be compared to the best Gelato shops in Italy. A definite must try!

By far, Stavolta has the best gelato in Cairo. I've spent a week in Italy last June, and I had to have a daily gelato fix there. When I came back, Stavolta was the only place in Cairo which fulfilled me as much as Italian gelato does. The place is small, clean, and has a huge variety of flavors that... More

wow! Walked past the window where you can see the ice cream being made then walked back to sample their wares. Vanilla and cheesecake flavours were ordered. Good sized portions, very clean and modern premises. They also had a cabinet displaying gorgeous looking ice cream cakes. There are a couple of places where you can sit and enjoy your purchases....
