“Good gelato, not the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

After reading so much good reviews from Tripadvisor, we come to this gelato.
Good gelato but a bit disappointed due to our high expectation, it is not really the best in the earth like what others review highlight. Well, enjoyed the gelato just €2 walking along the park by seaside. I will recommend if someone go to Salerno, won't miss it after back to my country.

“It is possible to find way much better!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

I'm Italian and I can assure you it is not worth going there! Especially in summer it is very crowded and ice cream is not so good as you can find in many other places even in Salerno! I've tried several flavours and they have all pretty much the same taste! To me it's been a total failure! Moreover I paid for a BIG cup of ice cream but the cup was almost empty, the amount of ice cream was the same of a small cup!! I think the only thing which might impress is the hot croissant taken right from the oven and filled with ice cream!

Una totale delusione!!! Posto affollatissimo, ho provato vari gusti ma avevano tutti lo stesso sapore e in più ho pagato per una coppetta grande ma era semi vuota, per capirci, il quantitativo era lo stesso di una coppetta piccola!! Credo che l'unica cosa ad effetto sia la brioche appena sfornata!!

“Yes, you really should try the gelato here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Especially on a summer evening, you'll have to fight your way through a crowd of tourists and locals all clamoring for gelato. It's worth it for the excellent gelato, probably the best in the city. The location along the lungo mare is perfect to have a snack and a walk along the sea.

“Amazing Italian Gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Go to this place for amazing traditional Italian gelatos! This is a very busy place and the ice creams are ridiculously tasty. I'm personally not a fan of ice cream served in a brioche but that's what this place is famous for!

“Make an ice cream into a lunch...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

by having it in a Brioche. This is the true mediterranean diet. The Brioche and gelati that we had from Nettuno's were excellent!
