Italian local made ice-cream which will make like a happy kid. Many flavours and some odd ones that you should try!

The ice creams in this parlour are truly superb. An amazing selection, brilliant value and all served up by very helpful staff (particularly with our son's egg allergy - they have lots of details of all the allergens within each ice cream).

Buon gelato artigianale. Negozio un pò piccolo, la sera può esserci una lunga coda all'esterno. Fine locally-prepared ice cream. The shop is a bit cramped, often a long queue waiting outside to be served.

친구의 소개로 이 작은마을에 3월에 잠시 오게되었습니다. 리구리아의 해안가를 따라 사보나에서 조금운전해오니 놀리라는 마을에 도착하더군요. 여름이 성수기인 놀리기 때문에 비수기인 3월에 방문하여 관광객들도 많지않고 마을도 다소 조용했지만 기대했던 젤라또는 제대로 먹고왔습니다. 시모나와 로베르토가 하는 파푸스는 현지인들에게 많이 들었기때문에 정말 기대를 했었는데요. 사보나에서 수퍼프루또나 다른 젤라또가게에서 이미 정말 맛있는 젤라또를 흡입하고 온 저로써는 파푸스의 젤라또가 더 맛있다는 친구의 말에 반신반의 할수밖에... More

This is a great ice-cream parlour, the queue can get really long on peak hours, but it is worth the wait, as you are standing in a pedestrian zone. So just enjoy the wait and then get ready for the next difficulty: what flavour to leave out of your choice! Enjoy!

We were told by locals that we had to visit this ice creamery and they were not wrong. The ice cream range of about 30 different ice cream flavours are made on the premises and their flavours were excellent as the length of the queue at 10 pm suggests. They are not expensive Go, you will not be dissappointed

Yes! Read the reviews! They are all correct. The ice cream and the yogurt are both amazing here. Go there. You won't be disappointed.

Delicious gelato at reasonable prices. My husband liked it so much, he returned after finishing his first cup to get a second. Two kids, husband and I had 10 flavors between us and they were all great. There were a few other people when we got there, but no line at all with 3 people serving. Quick, friendly service. Go...
