A good ice-cream: I had "violetta" and "arancia" (blood orange) and both were good. The owner let me try the flowers before I bought the ice cream, which was very kind.

This gelateria is worth hunting for. We has some and then had to get more before we left because it was so good. Lots of great flavors.

I wanted excellent gelato and wasn’t disappointed with U Gelato. The gelato was wonderful! The owner Moreno was very friendly, and clearly proud of his product. It was so good I had to get another before I left.
