Stayed across the street from here and had this twice a day.

The price is OK, the taste is good. I took 3 gusti : limone, biscotto, cuor di pardula. They were all good but the piece of biscotto in the gelato made it even better for me!

Sorbetto is my preference and they had bergamot (a bitter type orange from sicily). But the pistachio was a strong contender- not to sweet, nutty. Mmm
