We had Ice cream here every night. Instead of paying €5-€7 for a dessert in a restaurant we headed here. €2.60 for a big cone which were delicious.

Fancello does not have a big sitting area, a couple of tables in front of the shop and a table and a bench across the road on the promenade. However, the ice-creams are very nice, lots of flavours, some rather original.

Amazing ice-cream shop in the centre, on the beach promenade of Cala Gonone. There are so many kinds of ice-cream. The stuff is very kind and helpfull. In front of gellateria are some benches to enjoy your experience. The prices are really good value.

Located right on the water side though hidden amongst other ice cream shops. Keep your eyes peeled, it's below ground level and the easiest way to spot it is to look for dedicated water front seating marked in the name of the restaurant. I highly recommend the mango! Enjoy

Great place to cool down, when it's too hot. Has to be the best strawberry ice, that I have tasted in a long time. Would recommend!

Not all gelato is the same... don't waste your calories on bad gelato. This is what good gelato tastes like.

Really good ice-cream, very friendly staff on the pretty seafront, worth putting the address in your navigation and going there, even if you weren't initially intending to go to Cala Gonone.
