We just came by for ice cream and it was very good. Lots of flavors to choose from and they all looked delicious. I had stracciatella, coffee and fior di panna and they were lovely. We sat outside by the lake while eating and it was so nice. Would happily come back another time.

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 loved the choice of ice cream available. At 3 euros for two scoops it felt like a bargain. Tried a few flavours over a week, delicious.

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. NO, mint gelato should not be green!!! it is only green if they add food coloring. NO, mint gelato should not have... More

Three euros for a huge portion of ice cream you can't go wrong especially when the ice cream tasted so delicious. I you have read... More

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).

Thank Paul B
