A small laboratory for a great, tasty icecream. Try Leo's magic flavours... each of them will give amazing sensations to your thongues, I can ensure! Cause Leo's icecreams are heartmade, only fresh and natural ingredients. What else? Simply the best!

We have been served by the owner of the place who told us hr makes all the gelatos himself. There are vegan options. The fruit flavors have more than 80% of the fruit.

Delicious! Kids loved it. Daddy and mommy too. 2 EUR for an ice cream is an absolute bargain. Locals lining up to get some says it all. A bit out of the way though for the typical tourist...

This is the kind of gelato that will make you weep because one bite in you'll realize that everything you've had before was garbage. We were lucky enough to stay a block away from Tropical Ice and quickly made it a daily habit. The owner...More
