When I went out for dinner in Maadi, I would not order dessert at the restaurant, but walk to Stavolta instead. Perfect after-dinner stroll combined with an after-dinner treat!

Nice place for grabing s Gelato. Staff is friendly and it is in Degla where you can walk around or sit at there porch to devour their ice cream. Place sensibly priced and you can see them preparing the ice cream which kids find fun to watch.

Stavolta has been our favorite ice cream 🍦 in Maadi, when my kids think of ice cream first name they call after Baskin is stavolta.

Every time I visit Stavolta, I have never been disappointed. There is always a wide selection of unique gelato flavors that are always creamy and delicious! I also have encountered a friendly staff with every visit. They have new flavors added throughout different season, so make sure you try them before they are gone!

Their salted caramel could be better but it's nonetheless very velvety and creamy. The ice cream sorbet is a little too acidic for my taste, but my mother loved it. They also have delicious looking ice cream cakes and popsicles, but their generous ice cream scoop portions made me too full to venture out. It's 14LE a scoop and they... More

Lemon is the best. Fresh biscuits everyday! Sometimes the queue stretching outside the street will discourage you, but it is worth it
