“Excellent gelato, if a bit pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

This turned out a bit pricier than comparable shops but the quality was there to back it up. Crowded but overall pleasant atmosphere in which to enjoy the delicious desserts on a hot summer day.

“Birthday desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Great tea selection and over decent gelato. Ampere to cheesecake was ok, a bit less dense than expected but ok. Seating is always available

“This customer has exited for the last time!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

I have had gelato here from time to time, and have always tolerated the lack of customer service; you feel like you are imposing on the staff by trying to place an order!

As well, I recently did some comparison shopping, and came to the realization that the products here are overpriced. That's it for me; I'm gone.

“It is all about the dessert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We stopped in for lunch on a sunny day. The lunch pasta were passable with not too much flavour and bread that was a bit dry BUT the desserts are amazing. Go for an espresso and try something sweet. This is what the place is really all about!
