One of the best gelato I've tried in Switzerland. The have many flavours. Nocciola that I had was fantastic, so rich hazelnut flavour. Good crepes as well. Would definitely suggest stopping here for gelato when you're visiting Locarno.

Dear Rainer, many thanks for your review and I'm disappointed to know you did not appreciate the service we provided for you. Let me say however that it's a bit surprising that in none of the three times you visited our place you were happy....More

Had to try based on TA reviews. Did not disappoint! Gelato was delicious and service was very good. Very close to lake promenade and train station. Great dessert option in Locarno.

If you are in locarno, you have to come into this gelateria and taste the fantastic flavours they offer! You can take the ice cream, walk just 5 mins down to the lake and enjoy the view and obviusly the fantastic taste of ice cream.
