Located right near the Towers (Le Due Torri), it's a buzzing place especially in the summer evenings. The choice makes you happy, and my favorite was "che fatica che faccio": amazing taste of vanilla ice cream with caramel and chocolate specks, and the texture a pure pleasure.

An Italian friend, who has lived many years ago in Bologna.

Me and my family tasted various flavors.
All very good.
Okay, great.

We were looking for a gelato place that was recommended in trip advisor and could not find it. We asked two men on the street for a recommendation and they said to follow them. Near the center of Bologna was this place. The place was packed with locals and they had a huge amount of flavours. The price was average. The gelato was very creamy and wonderful. They had lots of chunks of goodies in them and we actually went back a second time. So if you are looking for gelato try this place.

Gelateria Gianni has a wide selection of the Italian-style gelato. Many flavors are rare to find in most other typical Gelateria.

If you're American, think of this as an Italian version of Coldstone's. Most of the flavors have cookies or candy bars or fudge mixed in, though there are some simple fruit flavors, too. This gelato is so creamy and sweet, it reminds me of American ice cream, not true Italian gelato. It makes for a heavy summer snack. The flavors are delicious and genuine tasting. Not sure I'd recommend this place if you're looking for gelato, but if you like ice cream, you'll like this place.
The people who work here are pretty patient, speak English, and will let you try before you buy!
