Probably it's nit the best icecream of the city, at least the locals don't mention it like that, but it is tasty, creamy and fruity. The offer was a little bit smaller than in other gelaterias usually, but the prices and the quality is completely satisfying, I'd advise it if you are around Via del Pratello.

I really recommend this place to everyone which would like to try a real handcrafted Italian Gelato. The owners are friendly and always smiling and the Mascarpone it's amazing. I try to go there every time I go back to Bologna, also for its location close to a real funky area of the city!

I'm surprised to see how many good reviews this place received. I'm always curious to check out new gelaterie, but the gelato I tried here was nothing special. As soon as I tasted it, I regretted my purchase and knew I wouldn't be able to finish it. Probably just a question of different people having different taste. For me, it... More

Tasty, artisanal gelato made on site. Not the best in town (that would be Sorbetteria), but certainly the best in this part of town. Friendly staff happy to help you try out some italian.

This is a new and very good gelataria, opened in April/May of 2012. We visited in early June and thought its gelato was among the best we've found in Bologna.
