“I understand why this ranks #1 in St Paul de Vence!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

The ice cream here was so good that after 2 scoops each we wanted more!

The milk chocolate gelato is phenomenally good (we tasted 5 of their flavours and this was our favourite). A close second favourite was the noisette hazelnut - amazingly good! Creamy... full of flavour.. Just plain delicious :) The staff were also friendly, wecoming and helpful with perfect English which added to the enjoyable experience. Go there if you can - you won't regret it!

“Perfect service, perfect coffee, perfect ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

After a long walk in the small streets of St Paul De Vence, I saw Dolce Italia at the corner and asked for an ice cream. It was one of the best ice cream I had before. Other than that the service was a great one. Artisans Glaciers was very helpful in helping me to find a place.

Strongly suggest to have a cup of coffee with a perfect ice cream.

Great gelato, really good coffee, and a nice guy who works there. Nice place to take a break as you are walking around the village.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I'm not sure there is a whole lot to write about when it comes to a small, quaint gelato shop, but I just had to write a little note to say how much I enjoyed this place! The gelato was top-notch and more than anything, the sweet gentleman who was running the place when we were there just made us feel so welcome....what more could you ask for! :)
