5/5 Amazing lemon basil ice cream!! Located in the historic centre of Corniglia, we recommend this Gelateria. The copetta costs 3€ (we took 2 flavors) and prices are correct for the region.

Worst ice cream we ate in Italy and abroad, at least il last few years. Also, very pricey. Wasted 6 euros per ice, not the ice cream. I wonder how they make that ice cream at home, probably they take the ice from the freezer...and then mix it with some flavours. Avoid. Go to Gelateria Vernazza, there you can find the best ice cream ever.More

So why almost all the other reviews say otherwise? Or maybe YOU have been the worst customer in Italy and abroad at least in the last few years…

Great ice cream. Especially the 'basil' flavor is something new and surprisingly tasty. We tried several flavors and were never disappointed. Friendly staff.

Not impressed with the taste of this ice cream. Expectations were high given all the awards and certificates stuck at the entrance; instead the basil flavour didn't taste much and the basil and lemon granita was too acidic. Maybe we happened to be there on...a bad day.More

The gelato did not have much taste, more like bland, and was not very creamy ( more like milk made) Party of four people with many flavors in our cups, unanimously would not give more than 2*

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!

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

I’ve tried all the best places in Florence, and Alberto still stands out. Love the Basilico, it pairs so well with the lemon & strawberry
