This is a small Italian ice cream place in the center of the medivial city of st Paul. The homemade ice cream is just increadible. I highly recommend trying it.

“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.
