Living in Austin, I thought Amy's Ice Cream hung the moon. Then I went to Italy and discovered Venchi in Rome. It was my nirvana, narrowly eclipsing Tufic Helados in Buenos Aires. But, there's a new champion: Helados Italia. There are no words to describe how incredible their helado is. We've been multiple times per day, trying everything from helados... More

We like the many different flavors of ice cream they have. Also, they have a variety of pre-made ice cream in a stick. Some with the ever popular Dulce De Leche, and almonds, peanuts........a lot! I like the special ice cream with peanuts, figs, and a lot of other stuff in it! One of my favorite ice cream places in... More

Argentine ice cream is known for its good quality and excelent taste. This shop offers very good ice cream, but not much different from other shops in town. It claims to produce Italian traditional ice cream. They´re known for seeling the "canoli", which is a stick of of ice cream or fruit coated with chocolate and cereal. The quality is... More

Best italian style ice cream. Dont miss sabayonne! You Will find this shop in different locations sobthere is no excuse for not trying. Not the cheapest but every spoonful is worth the money. They also have cannolis, abd other tipically italian stuff.

We go to the store at the corner of La Rioja and Libertad but the brand is known for its quality. The ice cream is fantastic. Try their Sambayon. It is like eating a frozen eggnog.

Libertad @ corner of La Rioja streets. One block from where I stay. So I went in happy. Once inside I saw the map of Italy on the ceiling upside-down or something like that, because it was geographycally all wrong. That cave me the bad vibes.

The ice cream was delicious, however charging people $1.50 for chocolate sauce is the equivalent of putting your hand into somebody's purse and running off with all their change. What chocolate sauce could be so delicious that it costs $1.50? Is it magical chocolate sauce? Did it come spilling out of Harry Potter's scar? Will I grow a pair of... More
