Stopped here a couple of times for Gelato, once to takeaway and another sitting at a table in the nice square after dinner elsewhere. Good choice and tastes fantastic!

We stopped by here on our way back to our hotel after having dinner elsewhere in the square. We just went for Gelato and they had a good selection. We each got two different kinds and then walked thru the alleyways back to our hotel....More

Stopped by her in July 2017 and 2018 for a snack and drinks. Overlooks a busy square, a nice place to relax and enjoy. Good service, highly recommended

had breakfast and drinks here on a number of occasions, the staff were fab and always remembered you, lovely atmosphere in the square and often musicians played to help you just relax from stringed quartets to singers and guitarists.

Have been enjoying their gelato since the 80s and it never fails. Tasty not too rich and their fruit and ice-cream compositions are wonderful. Don't forget their whipped cream Compared to other places it is not expensive at all even sitting down.

Cosy Gelateria on a nice location. The prices are VERY reasonable, and the staff is polite and not pushy. 2 portions of tortelini, 1 portion of lasagne, 0.7l spring water, 2 coffes with cream and a big ice cream/fruit cup for 48 euros.
