Great choice and pleasant service

Undoubtedly the best ice cream in the area and the wonderful staff, who advise explains, but does not impose. Tasting species and large portions at great prices.

As I wrote in title, I ate there very best ice cream and fruit sorbets at Sardinia. It has been having a pleasant, distinct flavor. In connection with seaview it was great :)

Best gelato in town! Kaleidoscope of flavours to choose from which change on a daily basis. Tub with 3 scoops was around €3.50. An absolute steal!

My husband and I had two scoops each to go in cups. There was an amazing variety of interesting flavors. I had lemon cream and persimmon. The ice cream was very creamy, unlike most Italian gelato I have had. The price was also amazing cheap at Euro 2.20 for two scoops.

Some of the best gelato any of us have had in Italy, served by an amazingly friendly older woman and younger man (mother and son?). They always served with a smile and were very pleasant to us on our many visits here on holiday. Worth tracking down while in Cala Gonone - we tried a few other gelatos, but none... More
