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.

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.

While I don't personally rate this as the best in Bologna, it is very good. Be prepared for a walk if you are staying in the centre.

Thought I'd never get there, I went on a Sunday and everything else in the street was closed, so I wasn't sure if I'd find it open but lucky for me it was. Amazing choice of flavours. I had the Pistacchio and the Nociello, both were amazing. Well worth the walk!

Best ice cream on the south side of the city. Great to get an ice if on your way to the Giardini Margherita or to St Michele Del Bosche both worth a walk to visit just out of the main town
