No wonder they’ve won awards for best ice cream. Flavours are really nice, portions are quite generous and it is not overpriced. If you up for a afternoon stroll around streets of Geneve - wort a shot!

Absolutely delicious gelato served in generous portions, with fair prices and great service. The closest you can get to Italy in Geneva! The only down side is that they close during winter and we miss it so much!

Had some delicious ice cream from here while strolling around Geneva on a very hot afternoon. Beautiful selection of flavours although a little expensive but we didn’t mind as we enjoyed so much! Would visit again and would recommend also!

Classic flavours as well as some modern ones. A choice of Sorbet and old fashioned ice creams. It is a small place and they make everything by hand and locally. A real artisan ice cream. I would go there every day if blood sugar allowed

Simply the best ice cream you can get in Geneva. And they are very generous! I usually ask the person serving me to stop adding!!

I've been hearing a lot about Manu, so I decided to finally check it out to find out what the fuss is all about. I admit that I went with some prejudice, because, after having lived in the USA for almost 10 years and tasted...More
