Great place to buy gelato, a huge variety of flavours and really good size portions too. Used to buy gelato and sit on the shores of lake Garda , can't get much better than that.

I LOVE gelato and since we moved nearby, I have made a point to try as many shops as possible. I always ask for mint gelato because it is the easiest to "grade" based on looks and taste.

Located really close to the lake with a take-away and sit-down areas this is a MUST for all lovers of ice-cream! They also serve food, alcohol and amazing cocktails at reasonable cost. I sampled several flavours, with malaga (rum & raisin) being my absolute favourite. Excellent quality, missing it already............

Planned to avoid dessert at dinner so we could visit this excellent gelateria. The range of flavours of staggering and I can recommend the amaretti. For the quality the prices are reasonable. Service very good.

Located next to the lake (with an outside seating area, overlooking the lake), this gelateria offers great icecreams. The icecreams are huge. They also serve drinks, salads and pizzas. Service is good. Value for money is also good (for the mentioned icecreams even great).

Just had ice-cream here! What a variety of flavours & combinations. Absolutely enormous & so delicious. All homemade. If you are in Bardolino don't go past. You'll not regret a visit & lovely to sit outside & people watch.
