“The Best Icecream you can have in Santo Domingo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

You're start feeling confortable since you walk into any of the stores. The cleanliness, the attention you get from staff, the welcoming smiles and the displays are awesome. The flavors! Oh the flavors... the only tough time you'll ever going to have into these walls is deciding what you're going to get! My personal favorite is a two tier cone with nuttela and nutmeg. The icecream are so soft, creamy, rich and full of flavor that you'll want to take some home or have seconds.

“Amazing ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

The place is a little small. But, it makes up for its size, with its amazing ice cream. I had the Ferroro Rocher flavored sundae, and that sealed my deal. And I am not even a chocolate/ice cream lover.

Great place to take your wife/girlfriend/date. Ideal place for a dessert after a great dinner.

“very good, one of the best ice creams i have ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

This place has really good ice cream. I mean almost every flavor is delicious nad it makes it harder to make a choice while you salivate the taste through your eyes while waiting on line. The only downside that i would say is that its a little on the sweet side. I would recommend for them to add a little less sugar since people are also going into more healthier substitutes like lite yogurts and other of that sorts. But the signature flavors are delicious and i would definitely recommend. My favorites are Staggliatta, snickers and coco.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

I tried Valentino in Santo Domingo after many positive references, but I really didn't like them. I actually had to go back a second time because I thought there was something wrong with the Gelato the first time, but no, still the same bland flavor.
Maybe I'm just used to the Gelato in Europe (Especially Amorino), but I think you definitely find better ice creams in Santo Domingo.

“This is the real deal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

I know my ice cream and this is the real deal! This is italian style ice cream at its best with Dominican flavors! The "stratiacella" is perfect, light, not too creamy with lots of shaved chocolate pieces. The place itself is beautiful and very clean (situated across the Blue Mall). There are tables and nice comfy couches to sit on and enjoy your treat. The service is outstanding...never had anything like it at an ice-cream shop! If you're visiting Santo Domingo and like ice cream, this is a must!
