Stopped by for a quick coffee and gelato - were 'told off' at every turn. Rude staff, strange rules (you can't eat a gelato in a cone, cup only, if you want to sit at the tables outside?!) and artificial tasting gelato and granita. Creme caffe was nice....thus the one star!

Waited an hour for 6 drinks to be made which came out slowly one by one. I ordered the Manhatten cocktail which was horrendous: served with ice, tasted like soap, could not taste alcohol. Told that they are 'made differently in Italy' despite having correct drink on menu. Will not be returning.

Beginning of August I spent two weeks in Gallipoli. Every day it could not help but stop at Accademia del Gusto! Their ice creams are pure magic. Best quality and the flavors are incredible (loved their ricotta cheese with pears and chocolate with oranges). I miss their ice cream :-(

A 5 yr nightmare memory on August 29th 2009 to the Accademia del Gelato with my mother and boyfriend that I need to share to the public to avoid this place not for its lovely location and food but for its horrific service which should have the owner put behind bars for almost killing my mother while us being there...
