“Amazing Ice Cream”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

We have had ice cream here twice now, once late at night and once during the day. Having been to Italy and experienced some of the best ice cream there, the ice cream here is pretty close! Pistachio ice cream is certainly amazing!

“Pancake Atrocity”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

Having had a very enjoyable shopping trip down the Laines I made the mistake of stopping for a takeaway pancake at the Gelateria De Luca... It was without doubt the worst pancake I have eaten - anywhere... Ever. Undercooked, unsweetened and wrapped in a paper cornet (I presume to resemble faux chip paper) so it didn't even look presentable. I took two mouthfuls (should have stopped at the one but I'm a rash devil) and then deposited the rest in a handy bin. Dreadful place - don't waste your hard earned cash.

“Amazing ice cream!”
Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

I come here in the summer all the time and I love the ice cream. It's delicious and creamy and never disappoints. The staff is very friendly and let's you try a little spoonful if you're unsure which flavour to get. Cannot recommend enough.

“Pistachio Excellence”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Definitely the best Pistachio Ice Cream I have ever eaten - and I am not that much of an ice cream fan - I regularly go there for dessert after eating elsewhere in Brighton.

Nice, friendly service, serves alcohol and proper Italian coffee and open late.

Well done.
