We took a gelato making class here with the wonderful owner. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Sorrento. You will not find a place with more flavors and they are made daily. They are fluent in English and welcoming to all. Tip: you pay first and bring the receipt to the person scooping.

Fantastic pizza and service. All nice and fresh served quickly. Waiters are great and prices are logical. I am not sure how purely authentic it is but nonetheless it's very nice. Good for some quick dinner which isn't going to eat all your cash away. Ice cream is amazing but and that's definitely recommended.

Oh wow the best ice cream I've ever eaten..so many varieties of flavours too. Staff helpful and lovely. The shop itself is very clean. We didn't have anything else to eat but it all looked delicious. I have recommended to fellow holiday makers who were visiting Sorrento.

Stumbled upon here on our way back to our hotel and decided to have a quick bite to eat. I had the margherita pizza and he had the pizza tricolore. Both were superb and very reasonably priced too at 24 euros for the two pizzas, a beer and bottle of water. Will be returning to try some of the many... More

Green apple and Watermelon gelato was delicious. Lots of other flavors. Sandwiches and some pastries too. Not much decor.

I am a wedding planner in the Amalfi coast and I often use this ice cream company for ice cream carts for after wedding ceremonies. They are precise, friendly and reliable. I cannot recommend them enough. They have a massive selection of wonderful ice cream flavours and the staff are wonderful ! Thanks again! Claire (Love In The Lemon Grove... More

What a lovely gelato shop with a huge, tasty selection. Personally met one of the owners, who was kind enough to sell me gelato spoons to take home as souvenirs. Will make a point of visiting again when returning to Sorrento. Thank you, Teresa! ‘Hope to see you, again, soon!
