great ice cream

what shall I say, they do know how to make icecreams in Italy. Fancello is one of such places. The whole our group enjoyed it a lot. Good service, simular prices everywhere in Cala Gonone.

I chose fragola ( which is strawberr ) and vanilla, and my husband nocciola and milk cream. The vanilla ans strawberry were to die for, the nocciola excellent but the milk cream lacked some taste. Still, the best ice cream ever😍 Plus, they have benches outside across the street overlooking the sea - FUN!

Can't award more stars because 3 of us had "standard" flavors. Mine was good: yogurt, nuts and honey. It conveniently located on the lungomare.

Loved the wide range of ice-creams. We sampled these perhaps a little too often - will now need to start counting the calories again. Beautiful ice cream - look no further.

Having seen the rave reviews on trip advisor I popped in this afternoon to sample the offerings of this gelateria. I get lemon, the kinder cereal (?), and tiramisu flavours and all were excellent. I did a trip recently through the Tuscany region and this was as good as anything I found there. Not to be missed. I'll most certainly... More

went there twice for different ice creams and all of them were very good and the choice is really amazing. The best in my view were the chocolate and the hazelnut ice cream. the place is open till late night and closed only for one hour around noon, definitely worth a visit.

The queue of locals out the door speaks for itself. Beautiful gelato in a large variety of flavours. Simple but perfect.
