Great Italian ice cream and great service! The dark chocolate flavor is highly recommended. One can enjoy the ice cream in the shade on the stairs of the church.

My wife and I travel much and it was in Italy where we discovered the best in gelato, until now. Who would have thought that... More

St Paul de Vence is a charming town and Dolce Italia was the best place for a pit stop. Had the best mango gelato of my life!!! Creamy and delicious and perfect.
