“Fresh ice cream from real ingredients”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

We love the ice cream here. They make it on the premises and with all real fresh ingredients. It is not just flavorings, but real fruit that is used to make the ice cream. One scoop is about 12 LE, but the scoop size is generous.

“Best ice cream and sorbets!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

It is a wonderful treat to taste before buying two scoops. All is made from scratch at the shop and you can watch as they mix it all day long. The prices are reasonable and the tastes super. It is a great heat relief in the summer and a sweet treat in the winter. It has moved another of my favorites that starts with a "M" to second place .

“Best Popsicle I ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

I've been to Stavolta several times and tried many flavors. My favorites are milk and kulfi. Milk sounds really simple but it's soooo good!

Their popsicles are homemade and they are excellent! I tried the milk chocolate one. The inside ice cream is milk flavored! This is literally the best popsicle I've ever had in my life! The place itself is very clean and the service is great. Highly recommended!

“The best ice cream so far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

I go to this ice cream shop at least once a week and it has never disappointed me. You can choose from many flavors and different types of cones. I also tried the frozen cakes and the one with hazelnut is delicious!

“Icecreamdream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

there is no better ice cream on this planet! Just amazing how fresh and perfect the taste, texture, just everything is. Not the cheapest place, but for a treat it is absolutely advisabke not to miss it. I personally love the lemon and the salted caramel most.
