The best ice cream

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... read more

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!

Since we were staying at an apartment-hotel right across the street, we had our breakfasts at this nice&clean looking restaurant and ice cream parlor. Breakfasts were always followes by unbelievably flavored and smooth dulce de leche ice creams...nuts, berries,zambaione and chocolate are great choices as well.Freddo is on the opposite corner so you can compare both...Persicco deserves a chance 'cause...
