“Nice Italian style ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

In Kemptown. Very dated decor, that makes it look lie, a time machine, I just love that about it. Loads of neon lights and the ice cream is lovely and reasonably priced!

“The Godfather.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

I'm sure everyone is familiar with the millions of Italian gangster films the world has produced. You know those scenes when the gangsters are chilling outside having a laugh and always in the background is a bigger,scarier, tougher gangster reading the paper or sipping on coffee with not a care in the world. Well this is what happens here, I'm not sure if they are gangsters but they certainly do not look as if they give a s-hit about anything. Old men and woman relaxing and slurping on some delicious coffee or children stuffing their crying mouths with spoons of gelato. The place opens when it wnats and closes when it wants. It has a nice easy going vibe, and the guys who run it are watching or playing football on the big screens. They do a nice pint of Pernoi as well. This place offers something different from the million wannabe cafes in Brighton.

“Great Ice cream and lovely coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

This is one of my favourite places to go for a great cup of illy coffee and real Italian ice cream. This place is a wee gem in Kemp Town that I would thoroughly recommend a visit to. They have a license for alcohol and therefor have a small bar. They also have outside seating with views of the Brighton wheel and seafront. Can't wait for the warmer weather so I can have an excuse to visit here more often.

“The best gelato in UK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

That's the best ice cream in UK and I can compare only with one that I tried in Torino. I've been just to try, because was a sunny day in Brighton and the ice cream looks very good and was the best choice tha I took. The pistacchio one was superb, plenty of flavour, and the staff were a funny and young italian couple. Lovely place, time and people.
I recomend it.

“Amazing Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

We have had ice cream here twice now, once late at night and once during the day. Having been to Italy and experienced some of the best ice cream there, the ice cream here is pretty close! Pistachio ice cream is certainly amazing!
