This place is legit, for true gelato lovers. The flavor selection is amazing and the quality is insane. The owners are trained in Italy, so it’s like you are having ice cream from there. My favorite ones were Pistachio, Mango and Yogurt and the really...dark chocolate :)More

This is an Ice cream parlor with hand-made product. We went three times to try to sample most of the ice cream. Our favorites were the mocha and the pistachio.

You can get an ice-cream everywhere in Madrid but this one worthwhile tasting! Very special flavours combined with friendly service. The owner knows well the job - he's been trained in Italy and it shows! You won't regret coming there :)

Excellent ice creams and they are always in a good mood, very kind and gentle. Don´t miss it. Pistacchio, am arena, coco, belgian chocolate. You won´t be deceived! Labonata is right beside a crappy place called Palosanto. Avoid this place! Terrible service and rude manners...by waiters. They feel entitled to mistreat you. The only place in Madrid where I´ve been mistreated.More

Hot day, walking through the town. Fancy artisan ice on a bustling square? Stop here - you will not be disappointed. The language barrier is not a problem - you are invited to taste and then make a choice. I had lemon and orange sorbets...and they were just delicious! Recommended - great place, great staff!More

As soon as you enter this ice cream shop , you can tell it's all about ice cream, the displays are so pretty, colorful and organized . It's very small but very kool😎 The server was really nice , and was helpful and knowledgeable about...the different types of ice creams. 🤓 The prices were good. It was not expensive neither super cheap🤑. There is no sitting area. It just to get your ice cream and enjoy it along your way 😋🍦 The taste was so amazing , I can't wait to go back again. 😝More

We visited a few heladerias while we were in Madrid and this one was by far the best, resulting in us returning over and over again. The chocolate and coffee flavours were our favourites. Would highly recommend.

Best ice cream in town. All made by hand. All natural flavors. You have to try it if you're walking nearby. Strongly recommended.

What can I say, I've LOVED ice-cream since I was a child and I've just found one of my all time favourite ice-cream stores. it's worth crossing the city for. The owners are incredible and take their passion for flavoured ice creams and ice lollies...seriously. Unusual flavours include Marakesh, a subtle violette, and 100% fruit ice lollys which are incredible and very thirst quenching. Located opposite Chueca subway, there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops nearby. Come explore and taste THE BEST ice-cream in Madrid!More

Thank you very much for your visit and comments. We're glad that you enjoyed our ice-creams. All of our ice-creams are made from scratch with mostly local ingredients and following carefully crafted recipes. Which does make a big difference! Thank you again, Labonata

We stumbled upon this lovely ice cream shop by accident; how lucky were we! Delicious!! We haven't tried every ice cream in Madrid, but I feel free to say it's the best ice cream in the city. Especially the super chocolate is a must!! It...was no where near our appartment, but went back the next day anyway. Seriously recommend this place!More

Out of this world!!! Came to this place by chance, not on the back of previously reading TA, what a great find. Belgian chocolate, super chocolate and coffee all in together in a copa. Outrageously good. Worth tracking down.
