“This is real ice cream - nobody does it better than the master!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I know ice cream and I know what's added to it to make it commercially profitable. This ice cream is excellent! Dairy ice cream with no added fat - great texture and no lumps of ice from miss service. Worth every penny - I love it!

“Delicious, Fresh Gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We stumbled upon this gelateria in Antibes, and were happy we did! A nice selection of flavours, which all tasted very fresh. We were not disappointed!

“Unbelievably good gelato and sorbet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

They claim to use no artificial flavors or colors, and I believe it. The flavors just explode on your tongue--this is gelato to die for! Incredible!

“Extremely stingy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I ordered 4 ice creams (we were 3 adults and a 2 year old child). Then i ventured to the front desk to ask for a glass of water and a cup for my child. They did not want to give a cup away for free and i had to beg for the water. Extremely disappointing behavior. They do not deserve to have customers.

“Great choice of flavours!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

Absolutely delicious!!
Would highly recommend everyone tries an ice cream here there's something for everyone!!
Decor is fab bright and fun and ice cream displayed fabulously.
Only downside for me was with the vast variety of flavours it took a while for us to decide which we wanted, not that there was anyone else there so werent holding anyone up, but girl working there seemed a bit annoyed by this!
Prices were quite high but same as all nice ice cream places in Antibes.
