We were there twice and for the first time I had great lemon cream and praline gelato. For the second time I had something else (I don´t remember, so it wasn´t special probably), but I know they use best quality ingredients and they do it really well (you can watch them in their laboratory), so that´s why I rate this...

The gelato is creamy and delicious and the lovely young lady who serves it to you is very friendly and always smiling. My partner always gets Cioccolato and says the best is from here! Always popular and busy with locals it's definitely worth a detour out of the city centre to visit.

The flavors, besides the actually gelato itself, won me over. Great consistency and the flavor was great. They have so many great flavors to choose from. I got a medium and it was 3€, which can be on the expensive side but it was great. I got salted pistachio and ricotta with berries. They also went well together. I recommend

For the first few minutes I felt dizzy cause my brain was trying to explain how an ice cream can be so perfect - and I am not a newbie in Italian ice cream. Then I just started to enjoy it, thinking that two scoops from cremeria santo stefano is reason enough to visit Bologna. Don't miss it!

The ice cream is an all-Italian specialties, but not all the ice cream shops are able to make a superlative product as that of Cremeria Santo Stefano. In Cremeria Santo Stefano you can enjoy an ice cream in the classic tastes or try some great combinations such as creams and figs or some exceptional granita. Highly recommended!

Great ice cream in historic "gelateria" a must visit if you are in Bologna. I tried the nocciola (hazelnut) and the salted pistacchio. I can still taste it soooo good!

This gelato is creamy and fresh. Then hazelnut is more yellow than brown, which shows that's it's real. Delicious! It is even better than Sorbetteria. My recommendation is to try many flavors by ordering the small size. The only down fall is that there isn't seating beyond crates outside that serve as chairs. Two thumbs up!
