Yummy ice cream in a variety of local and traditional international flavours. They let me try all sorts to help me decide which one I wanted.

Nice, fast pizza. Tortellini was a bit dry but good flavor. Ordered fettuccine without dairy but it came with Parmesan.

Terrible ice cream ( probably melted once already) and also terrible coffee. Go to Mama Mia instead, much better in both.

Buonissimo pizza! 😁 We had heard the gelato was good but we did not know from the outside that they did pizza. Great pizza vegetarian pizza, freshly cooked flavours were all very well balanced with very good mozzarella. We had half without cheese (we learnt...that is called a marinara so it suited us both. Not cheap but really great pizza.More

In this place you can find some italian products such as pizza, ice cream and espresso. I went here to have an espresso. It was not particularly good but ok considering we were in Zanzibar.

Good range of delicious flavours. Hibiscus and passion fruit were my favourite. Very expensive and no ambience or comfortable seats.

We are sorry for the seats not comfortable... But we aren't sorry for the "expensive" price..1.20 euro for natural homemade gelato in Zanzibar ...isn't expensive. 13.000 tzs (less than 6 euros) for burger, chips, soda and scoop of icecream isn't expensive.

I was wanting something sweet and saw this place near my hotel. I loved the small but tasty range of flavours. Some unusual flavours such as hibiscus which was great.

We went here everyday for our 5 day visit to Zanzibar, even twice one day. There gelato is great for a fair price. There food is "homemade", "like mom used to", and it shows. I highly recommend this little hidden gem ❤️

We ate ice cream there and it was very good! You should definitely go there if you like ice cream. It was no WiFi, but you could choose if you wanted to sit outside or inside. Cheap ice cream and good waitresses.
