I admit the ice cream was quite ok, but hearing rude and dismissive comments by the staff in Italian directed to my wife, who happens to be of colour and, alas, speaks perfect Italian is not really forgivable. "Cosa vuole questa?" "What does this one want here?". Maybe not overt racism but full on horrible manners. A mai più miei... More

Here you can eat probably the best ice cream of Frankfurt, I've been there so many times. You can choose between so many varius flavors. Even they are very popular I never had to waste too much time in the queue because they serving ice creams pretty quickly. I think the prices relatively low.

This is really very nice, neat and pleasant place. It is very bright and you can feel very welcomed. The coffee is super tasty, the ice cream is also very good. And they have many varieties with flavors. I would definitely visit the place again if I come to Frankfurt again. Definitely recommend it.

This ice cream shop is located in a residential areal with a few small shops. During great summer weather expect to see a long queue outside. The shop offers seating otherwise find a spot to sit outside to enjoy your ice cream. We had a nice mango, lemon and strawberry sorbe and mocca, pistachio ice cream. They were all really... More

I finally made it to Eis Christina the day the opened after the winter break as I had been hearing so much about the "best gelato in Frankfurt". The shop was full of people standing in line... To be honest, I expected more...something like Dolci Gelati in Washington D.C....While the gelato was really good - it was not overwhelming. Good... More

Eis Christina is a reliable, no-nonsense, good quality ice joint. There's no table service, you have to go buy the goodies at the counter, but I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes as they have plenty of staff. There's a very wide range to choose from, the scoops are large (and priced accordingly), and the ice cream... More

The gelato was quite good with the white chocolate being the surprise of the evening. Definitely worth a repeat. Other flavors were very good, yet would fall under the "traditional" category. One exception, however, was the cinnamon gelato. Adding swirls of honey definitely raised it a notch. Service was friendly and quite generous. I asked for 4 balls and got... More

The popular ice cream shop can not be missed - there is always a queue of people waiting for the delicious cold sweet! The corner shop Eis Christina at the Eckenheimer Landstrasse and Wielandstrasse is the place to get into the summer flow - the ice cream served tastes like summer, the service (usually) feels like sunshine and the calories...

This place is always crowded. The ice cones are big and there is a lot of choice. Interesting combinations like strawberry and balsamico or lemon and basil. But I was quite disappointed because I was expecting better tasting ice then I got. Certainly good but I know where to get better ice cream in Frankurt.
