We treat ourselves to gelato every night while on vacation and this place did not disappoint. The ceiling is beautiful, the ice cream tasty and the staff pleasant. I would recommend a visit to this cool shop.

It’s a nice place but don’t dare asking for a third taste or you will be treated like a criminal! Terrible service. There is no sign anywhere stating 2 tastes only so when I asked if I could try another (third) flavor, I was told...More

We stopped here as part of our cruise tour. We each had a cone and then rode the carousel while eating the cone and the operator took our photo. The photo looks much better now that we got back to Minnesota with the -30F weather....More
