My wife has become a bit of a Gelato expert over the years and the Gelato here was 3-4 star, so pretty decent. However, what drops it to a 3 star was that all gelato was covered up and therefore you couldn't see what you...More

In a city reknowned for its gelato shops, this is amongst the very best. Different flavours as well as old favourites are there for the choosing. Do yourself a favour and try it!!

We were quite disappointed: - Not creamy as expected ans as tasted in many others in Italy - Too sweet - No choice for the cornetto: only simple one and it is a very small one (half the normal size for a normal price)

Delicious gelato, some of the best I’ve ever had! Short walk from center of city but worth it...avoid the tourist places and come straight here. Pistachio was my favorite but others great as well. Yum :-)

This place was luckily close to our airbnb when staying in Bologna. We stopped by several times during our stay and every time we picked different flavours. They were all delicious. I particularly enjoyed the coffee flavoured special ice cream.

It was suggested by a friend for the salty pistaccio flavor.We tasted this and many others but nothing was amazing.Simply good,but in Italy good for ice cream is not enough.

The best granita I had in Bologna bar none - raspberry and pineapple with mint. Excellent quality and friendly service. Highly recommended.

Their unique flavors are a must try. There's a nice old world feel to their shop and the gelato tastes amazing.
