The reviews were so good that we tried the ice cream and were very disappointed. The name Italian led us to expect Italian quality ice cream but, unfortunately, the mint chocolate chip was distinctly lacklustre.

After a long walk in the hot weather this place just sums up the time spent here. My girlfriend absolutely loves this place. Quality sandwiches and some tapas like extras which is an added bonus and refreshing ice cream to end your stay here. Will certainly recommend this place.
