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. So did the "canoli", so did the regular icecream. So I went out unhappy... More

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

Una heladería que sorprende, si bien los locales tienen una apariencia tradicional y hasta "humilde" los helados son excelentes. Por ejemplo tienen expuestos en heladeras con vidrio unos llamados cagnolis, helado dentro de un cubanito grande cubierto en chocolate, imperdibles... Recomiendo el de sambayon. An ice crean shop that'll surprise you. Although the shop has a traditional or even "humble"... More

The ice creams are great, specially the mascarpone. They say that they are the inventors of the tramontana flavor, which consists of cream, chocolate cookies and caramel. I don't like the cannolis because they're just ice cream sticks covered with chocolate and other stuff, but htey have nothing to do with the real cannolis you would it in Sicily.
