Reviewed October 16, 2012

This ice cream shop serves the best ice cream we tasted in Italy, and trust me we tried loads! The flavours are original and completely divine! A real must!

“The best icecream I ever ate”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

I have no words for this sorbetteria! It was the most tasteful icecream I have ever tried! We stayed in Bologna 2 days and I managed to taste Gulielmo, Emma, Fior di Panna, Chocolat, Ferdinando, Eduardo.These are special flavors, made by the sorbeteria and you must try each one of them.
You won't feel sorry!!! It costs 3,20 euro and you can take up to 3 flavors. My advice, taste as many as you can!!!

“Gelato antico!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

They have flavored that you won't find in any other gelateria in town or even in Italy. The gelato is superb but you can also grab a coffee or a panino and sit outdoors or inside this beautiful old gelateria. The storefronts sign proves its worth a try, walking past it toucan tell there is something worth trying inside!

“Stunning!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Quite simply the best ice cream we have ever had in Italy. They have a range of incredibly innovative flavours on offer. It is very different from the usual run of the mill gelato experience and seems to draw in the locals as well as the tourists (always a good sign!). It's a bit off the beaten track (approximately 10 minutes walk down Via Castiglione from the city centre), but is an absolute must when visiting Bologna. Order the size/type of cup/cone at the till and then take your receipt to the ice cream counter and you'll soon be in ice cream heaven!

“better left alone”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

It was recently renovated, a bit to overly modern for me - but a fun place to grab a gelato and hang out on the sidewalk people watching.
