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!

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

I love indulging in one of their delicious flavors (and they're A LOT). Very friendly staff and I love having the ice-cream right in front of it.

What I appreciate the most is Stavolta's fidelity to local flavors. You'll have the regular gamut of flavors, but you'll also find halawa, hibiscus, rose and other flavors rooted in Egyptian culture. Good prices and delicious gelato!

Absolutely delicious gelato and sherbet in a million different flavours. A bit pricey, but well worth it. They also have ice cream/gelato cakes.
