Delicious gelato at reasonable prices. My husband liked it so much, he returned after finishing his first cup to get a second. Two kids, husband and I had 10 flavors between us and they were all great. There were a few other people when we got there, but no line at all with 3 people serving. Quick, friendly service. Go...

Prepare to stand in line. Don't worry though, it moves quickly and you will enjoy the company while you wait! Everyone is cheerful in Noli; I attribute it to the good gelato! We were introduced to this place by our friends who own a home in Noli. It is the local favorite, hands down.

Very nice. And it was very tasty comparing with some other I visited in Liguria. They speaks English so it was very easy to get what we want.

Pappus serves - without a shadow of a doubt - the best 'gelato' I've ever tasted. Beautiful Noli's delicious highlight. Wide selection. Fresh flavours. Lovely staff. Italy isn't the same without this little-known gem.

This is one of the best ice creams in Italy and believe me my family has tasted a lot of them all over Italy. Just adore the dark Venezuelan chocolate one and I'm not even a chocolate fan. A must for families!

As a true Italian (born and raised in Italy) I've had lots of great ice cream in my life and that, combined with a background in culinary arts, helps me quickly recognize an excellent product from a mediocre one. Pappus' ice cream is without any doubt the best ice cream I've ever tasted. A real made-with-great-ingredients ice cream will melt... More
