Super Gelato not that expensive

“Delicious Gelato”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

This is my favourite gelato. The chocolate is rich and out of this world. Lemon and banana/kiwi is heaven. A must try in Vernazza

“Best Gelato in the Cinque Terre”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

Location: Vernaza, in the Cinque Terre.

Food: Strictly gelato and perfect for a pit stop, post trek. I tried the fragola (strawberry) and ambrogio (nuts, cream, chocolate). Both were delicious and refreshing. They offered a variety of flavours to suit pretty much anyone.

The place: It's tiny so the line up backs out into the street. This isn't a sit down place.

Service: Good. There's only one fellow serving and he's pretty efficient.

Price point: a bit more expensive than what you'd pay in Rome - about 1.50€ per scoop.

Check these guys out after your hike - their gelato is a tasty and refreshing way to cool you right down.

The cinnamon and chocolate were both very good and the coffee flavour was wonderful - I would definitely recommend you try them..

We got gelato everywhere we went and this place did not disappoint. It was so yummy. Plus a great view when you walk out with your gelato.
