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

Probably the best ice cream in town. Always with many clients . Good professional service. Good ice creams with multiple choices. Price very acceptable for the quality. You must go.

You'd find it hard to believe that this small, relatively young establishment could conjure up such delightful gelatto in a country with such a poor F&B record. There really is very little else to say. The vanilla was creamy and tasted like it was made with fresh vanilla stalks, not some artificial flavoring, and the pistachio mix was to die... More

We have been to many places that make gelato but Stavolta is best in the world - even better than in Italy! Stavolta takes fruits that are in season and makes them into delicious gelato. Our favourite flavours are the Lemon Mint, Dolce Vita and Salted Caramel.

The perfect treat to satisfy your sweet tooth! Great tasting gelato with many nontraditional flavors and well-sized scoops. I especially enjoyed the Mascarpone and Salted Caramel.

Sometimes, over price goods may empress some people ( cause it must be good stuff according to its high price !!!!! ), nothing is special about that ice cream at all. Lots of other places in Maadi are much better. For example, if you care about real superb ice cream, you can visit "Cold Stone" in street No 9. You... More

Dear Stavolta customer. We do appreciate your feedback and we certainly take all feedback very seriously. We feel sorry that you did not see our product as good value. Please allow me to explain to you our concept. Our gelato is only for 14 pounds a scoop, a lot cheaper than industrial imported ice cream mass produced in a factory... More
