This gelateria does it very different. Special icecream with chili pepper, icecream with figues, milky icecream, peachy, red apple with cinnamon and many many more. The chili pepper icecream is a challenge and the owner of the shop warns you at least 2 times that it is very, very spicy. Go there and try it yourself, it's amazing!

Great ice creams and lots of choice. Staff were really helpful when our children just couldn't decide which flavours to choose. Worth a trip to the pretty little village for the ice cream alone!

It is incredible how the quality of this little gelateria hasn't changed over the years. Still best and still top quality!

Very good ice cream with seasonal fresh flavors. Worth a visit if you are in town. Price is right. In summer they had figs and fichi d'india tastes. Very exotic tastes.

Gorgeous, flavours of ice cream which are a bit different. The Napoleone is fantastic - honey and amaretto.

There's no denying it, this is the best Gelato I've had. I spent some time in Florence seeking out the 'best' gelato places there. They were good , but nothing like my experience here. It's evident a lot of love goes into choice of ingredients (as local as possible) and the production. Don't go to Marciana Marina and miss it!!

Pistachio ice cream one of the best ever tasted. My chocolate and salted caramel was also absolutely delicious. The intensity of flavours was the thing that struck me most here. Very creamy, lovely spot to sit just outside.

The best ice cream ever! Yes that flavour is one of the ones available but I suspect I could have eaten my way through the entire menu and loved every one. This is the relocation of a business from MIlan apparently, the owner fancied an easier life and banished himself to Elba, and why wouldn't you! He was on hols... More

I read about there gelato on Trip Advisor and had to try it. I went back everyday and tried 6 flavors in total from carrot-lemon (not my favorite but A+ for creativity) to chocolate with orange peel which was unbelievable. My all time favorite was the pistachio.
