rich ice cream

They have sorbets and extremely creamy flavors at about $5 USD per three scoop cup.Take it with you, eat inside , and outside on the sidewalk. Nothing more to say about this decadent place.

We finished a tour (BS Free Tours) at the Recoletta Cemetery and headed to Persicco for a rest and an ice cream. Through gesturing pointing (we have no Spanish) we got two great ice cream selections. The place was clean and tidy. Frequented by locals and tourists. If we had stayed in BA longer we would have been back!!

I was near this ice cream parlor, and the taste of the ice cream is excellent, among the best in Buenos Aires, worth the visit and having one daily.

Will be delighted with the tastes of this chain. While we normally like one off shops, we found the service, place and product worth visiting and revisiting. Lovely late night place to indulge with dulce de leche ice cream!

Without prior notice, they have decided to keep just the staff at the cashier, and one for the ice cream section, and one for the counter where you have to pick up your order. Do not leave anything at the table when you go to pick up your order. At the same time, somebody may take your table while you... More

I've tried the Dulce de Leche and also Menta. Amazingly good. And the location is perfect, right in the heart of Recoleta. If you're a tourist walking around, take some time and cool off there, you're going to love it.

Forget Freddo (ok, don't, their dulce de leche is still very good), but this is the best ice cream I had when in Buenos Aires. Don't miss out on the raspberry; amazing.

Persicco is a great call if you´re sick and tired of Freddo´s flavors. They even got a coffee ice cream. They also have a wider variety of flavors than Freddo. The waiters are nice!

When in Buenos Aires, do as the Portenos do - consume the Dulche de Leche ice cream at Persicco - it is excellent!

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
