This was the perfect reward after climbing all those steps from the train station up to Corniglia. We wanted the best gelato in town, and I think we got it! They also had dairy-free chocolate sorbet for my husband, which was very rich and delicious!

thank you Michele for your nice words, our customers' reviews are so precious to us!
The folks working here elevate this place from a good establishment to a great one. The selection and quality of the Gelato are perfect, but we stayed in Corniglia for two days out at the edge of the cliff, and passed by the shop numerous...times, and were always enjoyed the friendly banter coming out from the staff. We stopped in on our first day in town, and loved the hospitality, and soon realized that this is the standard here. Definitely worth your time if in townMore
We climbed the stairs excited to try this highly rated Gelateria. The gelato looked good but we weren’t sure which flavors we would like. After one sample, he told us we couldn’t sample any more. I asked him why and he got extremely defensive and...went on a rant and asked if I would ever ask to sample food in a restaurant before ordering. Taken aback, I blindly chose two flavors and they were, “meh”, good but not somewhere I’d ever go back especially with the way he treated us.More

I had walked by and noticed a sign proclaiming “basil gelato” but thought to myself that that probably won’t taste good. After some contemplation, I realised I’d only know if I tried it and wow, I was wrong!! It was honestly a transcendental experience tasting...the depth of flavours just in that one flavour of gelato - I assume it’s due to the quality of the produce and the fact that it’s made fresh with love. I also had the cherry flavour and while it was just as tasty, it’s not as unforgettable as the basil gelato which is just one of a kind.More
Do not miss this gelataria! The basil gelato is some of the best gelato we’ve EVER had (very refreshing!), other good flavors include peach & rosemary, dark chocolate, and ricotta portofino. Just 2 euros for two scoops, so great prices as well. And friendly service!...Overall, A+ gelateria.More
