Decent portions, good taste (mango and chocolate) but I preferred another gelateria in Split (see my other review). Great location next to Peristil Square & the cathedral.

With a teenage daughter doing her darned best to try every ice-cream place in Split we sure hit a few gelato’s most of them great. But this one for flavour and texture was by quite a long shot the best. It was more expensive and...smaller portions but actually still worth the extra mile it took to get here.More

Our walking tour guide pointed Pumparela out to us and called it the best ice cream in Split. She was correct! We had the orange, pistachio, chocolate and coconut. All four were beautiful! In the evening, there is live music at a bar/Cafe right around...the corner. We sat across from Pumparela with our ice cream and enjoyed the music without the crowds!More

This is the best ice cream I’ve ever had!!!! By far!!! It’s located in a touristic place so u can have ice cream and still walk around to sightsee

Ice cream was the nicest in split however I couldn't go back again as the staff were quite rude and it put me off! Thought they were quite unhelpful too. They don't allow children to taste to decide they want a flavour. However we did...buy ice creams twice here and it did taste better than the other places we tried in splitMore

I'm not a huge ice cream fan but it would be rude not to try the ice cream when you're on holiday. I tried their Ricotta and Fig gelato and it is hands down the best gelato I have ever eaten. I went back the...next day to get the same and brought all of my friends the day after that.More

Definitely better than the ones on the Riva. Compared to Italian standards it is not amazing or perfect but definitely above average quality :) I would go there again for sure.

It was easy to detect this was fresh strawberry ice cream as it still had very small fruit seeds embedded in. Flavoursome and inexpensive. Found a few paces from the Clock Tower in Diocletian's Palace.

We saw here after visiting the palace and flavours sounded good. I had Oreo, husband had mango and daughter had pannecotta and also cheesecake. I enjoyed my Oreo but it didn’t really taste of Oreo. The pannecotta and cheesecake tasted quite similar. The two scoop...and two one scoops came to 50 Duna.More
