“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Ballabeni is close to the university and has quite a following, as you'll see by the long lines it commands. I had raspberry and lemon basil and found them both to be excellent. Those with me also thoroughly enjoyed their selections. Nice addition were the edible bowls (like a very thin, airy almost tasteless cone but in a square shape). I can't say this is the absolute best - I found Bartu to be also very, very good and organic - perhaps I need to do more research!

“Icecream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Really good ice cream. I`m Italian and I think I know how ice cream should taste like... This place sells definitely the best in Munich. The only place where ice cream can be better is Italy!

“Best ice cream in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

It's just unanimous. There is no doubt this is the best ice cream in town. I recommend the Chocolate with ginger.

“Good but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Good ice cream, but definitely not exceptional and not worth the long queue and the higher price. The taste range is very limited and they don't seem interested in trying something new: they've had the same tastes for at least three years now. The cone is mediocre. To conclude: I would recommend going to another ice cream shop, there are several in the nearby which I like better than this one.
