“Overrated and touristy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

I am a big gelato fan, and sought this place out as the reviews were so positive. To be honest, I'm not that impressed - not very tasty gelato, I'm afraid! I had a small tub of pistachio and stracciatella, and I actually threw it in the bin rather than finishing it!

gelaaati, Proprietario at Gelaaati Di Marco, responded to this review, October 22, 2013
Good morning, dear client, i am very sad to hear that you were not satisfied with our product.
The only thing that I can say is that we produce with the best high quality of raw materials, some of them arrive directly from Italy, like the case of pistacho from Sicily.
We make a special recepy for evrey taste and fresh every day.
Perhaps your taste is used to cheeper quality, what I can ensure you that in 20 years of dedicated and hard work none of our client threw away his gelato, apart of that we give to taste before if the client asks.

Thank you anyway.

Best regards Di Consiglio Marco

Great gelato and so many choices! Really creamy AND they give you unlimited samples which is important when you have so many to choose from!! We went back two more times before we left!

“Excellent Ice-Cream - Gluten Free Gelaaati”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

The best I had in a long while...
We took the recommendations on tripadvisor and it was worth it – located in a center location on the “Gothic quarter” and took us back to the wonderful tastes and flavors of Italy’s Gelaaati.
The staff are so sweet and let us taste before we decided – which in cases of “Avocado flavor” it is required to verify  (although it was great too)
We took 4 -5 different flavors among us and it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G – even in a rainy (and chilly) day ;-)

“Best ice cream in Barcelona!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Went here as saw the reviews on TA and the long (but quick) queue inside. Good selection of different flavours, competitive prices (medium is €3.80) and great service.

The most important thing though is the ice cream and that was amazing - I tried hazelnut, pistachio and biscotto - all 3 flavours were superb.

This was easily the best ice cream I have had in Barcelona, and certainly on a par with some of the famous gelateria in Rome.
