“The best gelato I have ever tasted!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

The flavours are so strong and so delicious. This place has more ice cream to choose from and I recommend anything and everything with hazelnut or nutella!

“Superb ice cream, and so many to choose from!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

Don't be put off by the queue; it moves quickly, and despite everyone seeming to hang aroung in the street outside to eat there ice creams, there's plenty of room inside to sit at tables if you go right to the back. They do coffee and cold drinks too, at the back counter, though you probably have to order them at the same time as your ice cream. Also if you go right to the back corner you'll find some clean toilets, which is always handy to know!

“Very good but not the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2012

Very good gelato but if you are looking for the best of Bologna, then try Cremeria in Piazza Cavour.
It's a shame that it's not included in trip advisor.

“Great Gelato”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

Go for the pistachio, or any of their other great flavor. Being so close to the towers and piazza Magiore makes it easy to find.

“Best Gelato!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

This might be the best gelato I've eaten in all of Italy, and I traveled there for six weeks last summer! Creative flavors, creamy and so fresh. It's a must-visit in Bologna!
