I really had an amazing time and experience going there. The owner was very friendly, and she willingly offered me all the available ice creams to try out as sample. The cool thing about it everything is made from scratch, and all natural and there are variety of toppings that you can choose from for your ice cream. I enjoyed... More

I often think of Il Pistacchietto and the wonderful gelato I have been served over the years - this is my very first stop whenever I'm in northern Italy. The flavors are mouth watering and unique - writing this review just brings a smile to my heart. The mother- daughter team makes this artisan gelato with such love - It's... More

Family owned business off the beaten path, joined by locals and loved for the sublime quality of ingredients and flavors. If you just want an ice cream, here you will find simply the best. If you want an experience, too, then my reco is to indulge in a talk with the owner and grasp her recommendations on an ice cream-based... More

Great range and good central location. Try the seaweed flavoured gelato - sounds awful but was really good.

This was the best gelato we had near Lake Como and some of the best we've had in Italy. Amazing fresh fruit flavors - plum, mixed berry, and everyone's favorite lemon basil. My family tried a variety of flavors and everything tasted amazing. Can't wait to come back again!

sightseeing On Como lake, a stop over @ Pistacchietto is compulsory for us. Not exactly in city center or on lake side, 5 minutes by car and you are at the Ice-cream's paradise! I'm going there not often, by the way the staff can remember us, you are welcome always with a smile. Every time some new tastes, yesterday I've... More

What a treat ! The moment you step in you know something different is served here. In a very nicely designed store in Cernobbio, this family is serving the best ice cream we had for a long time. All made from natural ingredients, local fresh milk, fruits of the season and the best talent and tradition put into the ice... More

This was the first place we ate after arriving from Florida. I missed Italian ice cream. I was not disappointed. They were very nice to us too.

There is no better gelato anywhere. The owner gave us samples of virtually every flavor. We both went with "Nectar of the Gods" which lived up to its name. It will be our first stop in Cernobbio next visit.

The ice creams here are amazing. If you're every in the area, pass by. They have different flavors like basil for example. The people running the place are very friendly
