“Fantastic Desserts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We happened to see this place while we were trying to find a restaurant for dinner. We returned after dinner and saw a menu full of amazing desserts. We sat in the table service part of the restaurant. I had a very nice apple strudel and my wife had a huge yogurt and sherbet dessert. The only bad thing is we found this restaurant on our last night in Berlin, so we couldn't return to it!

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

In a country that seems committed to its gelato, this place has the best. Broad selection and constantly rotating and fresh gelato is very popular with locals. The shopping center is full of people with cones and contented faces.

“No bluffing, the best gelato in Berlin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

The icecream here is simply awesome: creamy, tasty, delicious... there are many flavors and all of them are terrific, I strongly recommend you to come here and enjoy at least once.

Nevertheless, there are indeed some VERY important things to keep in mind when visiting this place:

- It is usually packed, and you'll have to make a huge line for asking for something.
- If you ask for ice-cream in the counter, you won't have the right to seat in the tables: for that you'll have to order something else (like a coffee), or simply just seat and ask for a fancy dessert (like a banana-split). However, if the place is full, don't expect fast service.
- The place is not cheap: you'll pay around 4€ for two ice-cream balls... which is not bad if you keep in mind that those ones are the best in town.

The best recommendation I can give is to go, make the line, and don't seat: just go eating your gelato around while watching the stores... or come some day very early in the afternoon or very late at night when there's no one around if you feel like seating (they won't mind if you ask for icecreams in the counter and then seat if the place is empty).

“best in deutschland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

you have to try each of them!!

you can taste before choosing

if you prefer to take a seat in the cafe - you need to order smth - cappucino is a good choice - they offer great desserts but as for me its too much of a good thing!

best tastes - malaga, pistazio, dasinteria

“Fun ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Having been told to look for spaghetti ice cream, my research led our group here. The menu was extensive, and tempting. My daughter went for the spaghetti ice cream, I chose the tiramisu. Both were very nice. 

They also serve lunch dishes, so there's something for everyone. I hope I get a chance to return.
