Bologna is truly a city of gelato. Out of all the cities I've visited in Italy...Bologna is at the top for number of great gelato shops. Grom was one of our favorites. We also bought Grom at the supermarkets. Don't miss a stop at Grom!!!!

Hi Alec and thank you for your review!

Yes, you can find us at the supermarket and this is a project we are very proud of. We've been dreaming for some time of making gelato as good as a gelateria's available outside a gelateria and we've actually done it. Consistent with the philosophy that has guided us since our first store opened, the flavours you find in tubs are made using naturally-sourced ingredients of the highest quality, without aromas, colouring agents or emulsifiers.

Hope to see you soon!
Valentina

We randomly stumbled upon this Gelateria and we were impressed by the quality of the gelato. We think it is one of our top picks in Italy so far.

The chocolate sorbet was excellent!

Hi! thank you for your comment,

we make gelato as it used to be made, with only naturally sourced ingredients We do not use colouring agents, emulsifiers or aromas and so our gelato gets its taste and colour from the raw materials alone.
You can find us all around Italy.

Hope to see you soon!

I had the lemon and egg gelato, which sadly my stomach did not agree with after, but there is many other places to eat gelato. This one being a chain, I feel makes it over produced and not real

Worth seeking out if you are in the mood for some delicious, rich artisanal gelato. Unhurried and friendly service. 2 x 2 scoops cost a little over 8 Euros.

The service was very quick and was not hurried into making a choice of flavours that I wanted. It was a very busy ice cream parlour, which appeared to be popular with the local children.
