We tried out all of the gelato shops in town, this was ok but not our favorite. They were out of quite a few flavors and the cones were slightly stale.

Our very favorite gelato place in The Cinque Terra...it is at the marina in Vernazza, often busy. The chocolate chip and the yogurt and honey are very special in our minds. We tried lots of places!

I recommend a stop here for a cup of joy. The gelato is really good and the prices are exceptionally reasonable for the location. The owner/shop runner is friendly and welcoming. There's plenty of sitting area further down by the water, either by the boats or side facing the ocean. Vernazza is sooo lovely!

One of the best gelatos we had in Italy-try the cinnamon! Grab your cone and walk down and look at the beautiful harbor.

Great ice cream in a beautiful harbour. Even the slushis were natural and refreshing and not stacked high with sugar. A perfect stop on the 5 town route.

So smooth and rich- just melts in your mouth! We came here after getting a recommendation from our tour guide- definitely well worth the trip. We tried the pistachio and cinnamon gelato- both were great. The pistachio tastes like the real nut- so flavorful. And the cinnamon was good too- very strong in taste, but not overwhelming. Would recommend this... More

Stop here for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. The straciatella and hazelnut flavors were delish. Their wafer cones are very fresh and taste homemade. Depending upon how many scoops you get, you'll pay 1.50 to 2.00 euros.
