In this Bar I have tried one of the best ice-creams of my life. I do not care about how the place looks like, but I just find it amazing that they still serve such good and genuine products. Chapeau!

A little bit far from the city center (20 minutes by car), a must for the best ice cream we ever tasted. Chocolate, pistachio and other fruit flavours are truly a masterpiece, at a normal gelaterria price. If you can, go there and you will...More
