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.

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
