If you are in search for Italian-like gelato ice cream in Riga old town, this is the only place to go. In my opinion, hazelnut and pistaccio are the best, but there are some exotic friut tastes as well. And lately we are lucky enough...not to have a guy servicing us, there is a nice lady behind the counter, so you shouldn’t be concerned about this either.More

No doubt they have the best ice cream in Riga. So creamy and rich in flavors. I love the Pistachio flavor the most.

Sorry for not reading previous reviews before visiting this place. I can confirm only, that the owner is a very agressive person, looking like hating his own customers. He is the exact opposite to Chinese proverb - If you can't smile, don't open the shop....Don't try this option unless you accept the risk to be humiliated without any reason.More

Many tasty ice ream options, I suggest to try passion fruit and extra dark chocolate. Convenient opening hours, good place to visit after a dinner for a dessert. and a cup of coffee.

The gelatto is not like italians gelattos and the owner almost yelled at my husband when he asked for a spoon. If you see other reviews here, you can notice that this kind of behaviour is normal in this place. I don't recommend at all....Pay almost 5 euros for a only ok ice cream and be mistreated is not cool.More

Even available in the winter time :) Pistaccio is the best! (price: 2.5e small cup, 3.70e medium cup and 5e large cup) you can also order a brioche with ice cream!

A good variety of flavours, each that we tried were creamy in flavour. Portion sizes were average to good. Not an overly friendly service experience (almost like we had inconvenienced the person for coming in!), but ice cream was good enough to overlook that. We...didn't see too many ice cream options in Riga, so this is a good choice if you are in the city.More

Having already overeaten on Georgian food this was a delight for dessert. Probably even better when not already full. Very good home made sorbet.
