Delicious ice creams and the best iced coffee I have ever tried made by manager Deborah. Had it in summer, came back next week but other staff told me iced coffee was not available( laziness I assume as they were not busy).

Best ice cream - with the exception a gelateria in Rome.... Great vanilla, sorbet, chocolate ! We were waiting 45' to enter the small gelateria but we were very satisfied with the variety of the ice creams, the quality, the service and the price.

Amazing selection of ice-cream, huge portions and all flavours are really terrific. They will let you sample as many as you like for free. The coffee is also fantastic.

Tiny shop so not a lot of room to sit. Ice cream is delicious, had vanilla and chocolate, both very good. One scoop is more than enough!!

This may be a cafe but there is so little space and the seats are basically window boxes that its not worthwhile eating here. If you feel like an ice cream on a sugar cone, this is probably the only place you will find one...More
