Excellent ice cream with a large variety of flavours, went here almost every day during recent holiday. It can get quite crowded which can make it difficult to see all the flavours, could do with a board outside listing them. There are about 3 tables opposite to sit on with parasols, if no seats available I suggest walking through the... More

So many choice it was a bit difficult not to have them all but decided on 2 at last and sat to enjoy in a charming old street. This is worth a visit with or without the kids

Since my review in April 2015, I decided to return in 2016. I enjoyed a dish with two flavor choices - white chocolate and cookies. Although the "cookies" flavor overshadowed the white chocolate a little, both were smooth, and delicious! Always my first choice for gelato, seating is an added bonus for tired travellers feet. Amarena is still great....

Nice ice cream and sweet pause during a visit to old Antibes. Besides, this ice cream is as good as many others you can find around the town, although they have the bonus of having real fresh cream and not the fake spray one.

Stopped here for ice cream after dinner. The flavor selections were wonderful. I had a mixed cup of chocolate and hazelnut, and it was wonderful. Price is good as well.

The ice cream was really nice! There is a lot to choose from and it is delicious. However a downside is that they don't have plastic cups for the coffee.

Consistently good with artisanal gelato. The Malaga (rum raisin) as well as their fruit flavors were very good. Very popular, especially after dinner, but worth the wait.

Français / English J'ai pris une glace Banane / Myrtilles. La banane a un goût de bonbons banane au lieu de vraie banane, et la myrtille avait le goût d'une glace Picard. J'ai pris deux parfums, la personne derrière moi a pris 3 parfums et a obtenu la même quantité totale de glace tout en payant plus cher. De la... More

Homemade italian ice-cream in lots, lots of flavours. No artificial colours og flavours. The place dosen't look as much, but don't let you be fooled. The icecream is gorgeous.
