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

We stopped in for a coffee one afternoon and we couldn’t resist the lovely looking gelato and desserts. There are some great gelato flavours and we can recommend the crepes and fresh fruit salad. Not the cheapest but the ingredients were fresh and the fruit...More

My friend came from Italy. And she said this ice cream was the best ice cream she has eaten outside of Italy, good recommendation I would say.
