Great gelato and friendly staff. I'm a fan of classic flavours such as Nocciola and Cioccolato. Gianduia also tastes good with those two. I'm sooooo happy they have gluten free cones. Nice seating area.

I think any flavour would have been delicious! Mine was superb! Wish I lived there! But I would have to watch my weight!

Best gelato I've taste in my last trip to Italy. It was so difficult to choose the flavours but the result was so good. Hard to explain in word. If you are visiting Bologna, we should definetely go here!

This is the best gelato we have eaten throughout our trip in Italy. It is fresh and the flavors are delicious. You gotta give it a try! I particularly liked their special flavors!

I cannot recommend this venue highly enough for the best tasting dark chocolate ice cream I have ever tasted in my many decades of life in search of the perfect ice cream! The potions are generous. It is worth the trek from main city centre to find this vendor of ice cream excellence. I shall return to Bologna if not... More

So many delicious flavours but they are all unique and fabulous. Lots of interesting mixes like caramelised hazelnuts salted pistachio. It's about a 15 minute walk out of the town but well worth it.

This place has some of the best gelato in Italy. There are the standard flavors and then some original flavors. The ricotta with candied figs was excellent.

Well i ll be really honest!!! I like very much ice cream and I only eat hand made ice cream. I tasted in many Italians cities. But this one it s something else. It really PERFECT!!! You must try it. In my opinion the number one thing in Bologna. Must do it.
