I have been living in Perugia for years and I have seen many gelateria come and go. This one was set up by a Perugina employee that left the famous chocolate factory when Nestle' took over. It is spectacular. You have to try the at least 3 types of chocolate (my favorite flavor) including the one that is orange and... More

the Augusta Perusia offers a great gelato! Some say it's the best in Umbria. There I tasted the weirdest one I've ever had, the Basil one - and it was so tasty! They have great chocolate too, and nive cocoa spaghetti.

I've followed the growth of this "ciocolateria"since they began as a very small business many years ago. Quality products find an appreciatve public even in hard times and they deserve their success and international reputation (being close to the University for Foreigners) .

Lovely chocolate shop next to the basketball court. Silky rich hot chocolate with perfect balance of flavor, cream & sweetness. Tried 2 varieties of dark chocolate truffles. Both were great. A little disappointed with the dark chocolate gelato. Dark in color but light in flavor with a hints of burnt taste.

The gelato was so cold, so thick, so creamy..... just right. I chose fruit flavors - raspberry and cantaloupe - so perfect in color too! My husband had a scoop of both rich deep chocolate and a coffee flavor - he was raving. A small place, charming, just off, well behind, the beaten path. Try their homemade chocolates too! Nothing...

Had the most beautiful gelato here and could have had another three straightway. The woman behind the counter was helpful and gave great recommendations. I ended up going for spicy chocolate, nocciola and pistachio. Yum!

I had the chance to visit the shop located in via Pinturicchio (near the University for Foreigners) so my note concerns only that shop, not the other in via Bonazzi, that I had not the chance to visit. The shop specialises in chocolates and ice cream, and it is really worth a visit ! Several different types of chocolate pralines... More
