Just try and you will understand the taste of a real gelato italiano. Best gelato in Funchal (we tried different but this was best of the best). The owners are from Italy, they know how to make gelato :) They make it really by hand...More

I adore this place, proper Italian ice cream, lovingly made with real ingredients and it shows. Creamy, not artificial or overly sweet- absolute perfection. The staff are lovely too.

Great tastes of the italian homemade ice cream perfect with the crepes with fruit. Nice place where to stop for a break in the heart of the old town of Funchal. Nice informal and friendly staff. Great also the português cappuccino

Ottavia is a bright, airy, clean shop, tucked away on the corner of the back streets between the cathedral and the town hall. It’s worth seeking out for smooth, properly chilled, generous portions of creamy gelato. Our favourite this year by far.
