So you have to pay before you order! Good choice of ice creams but nothing out of this world. It located in a good location which is probably why it is number one, venture of the Main Street and you will find more choices

Unfriendly staff and very average ice cream. Much better options very close by. The only reason they get any traffic is their location .

Staff was welcoming and fast. My lemon gelato was perfect but licorice was too sweet. Gelateria is on great spot.

Gelida Voglia is one of the best places in Matera for gelato. We went twice today..both were very good. It was busier in the evening. Worth a visit.

After walking through Sassi I stopped here for a cool gelato. The place was highly recommended on TripAdvisor. The gelato display was beautiful and the flavors were presented attractively. Yet, The gelato /ice cream was sweet without much flavor. Disappointing.
