“Gelato pilgrimage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

A long walk or bus ride from the center rewards the traveler with some of the best gelato in Italy. The flavors are unique, fresh and delicious.

“The gelato championship ends here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

Superb gelato, with a true bittersweet chocolate, great texture. Castiglione boasts a concern for health, promising no GMO's in their ingredients and using sweeteners with a lower glycemic index. It even posts the nutritional content of flavors.

“Perfect ice cream - friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

This ice cream shop sells fabulous ice cream - the staff are very helpful and friendly. We recommend the caramellised fig, grape and ricotta ice cream in particular! It seemed to be open whenever we went past! There are benches outside under the colonnade for you to sit on while enjoying your ice cream - or you can make it to the park at the end of the road quite easily.

“The best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

I tried ice cream - pistachio and straciatella. Both were very good, but i prefer straciatella with giant pieces of chocolate! Mmm.. it was delicious! :)

“Probably the best gelateria in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Just go there. All the flavours and textures are marvelous, The benches outside in the shaded colonade enhance the langour and indulgence.

There is no ability to review Rosticceria Castiglione (Gastronomia Castiglione) on the corner of Castiglione, Orfeo and Via Rialto ... but hey ... the rotisserie roast poulet is succulent, well-spiced ... mouthwatering. Go there.
