Description: The ice cream shop Il Massimo del Gelato, was born in Milan in 2001. Unlike other ice cream shops that love to surprise and study extravagant tastes, tastes are without exaggeration, the attention is paid only to the quality. We like to show our customers the freshness of our raw materials by placing fruit boxes at the entrance. Every day we choose carefully the best ingredients and we create an ice cream able to rediscover the pleasure of a color, a perfume, a texture and a forgotten taste. The Maestro Gelatiere Massimo Travani offers a unique collection of chocolate ice cream in Milan: 100% cocoa, Criollo, Domori Venezuelan to 75%, with chili, with cinnamon, stuffed with candied orange and Grand Marnier and many other original creations made from chocolate . Products of the shop: homemade ice cream, granita (ice and pure fresh fruits), cakes and cold pastry.

“Devine Ice Cream”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

This is heaven on earth.

So many flavours of wonderfull flavours of ice cream and for the healthy folk out there frozen yoghurt, a little bit away from the city centre but worth the trip out, I took my wife and she loves her Ice cream,

We ended up going here 3 times in our week long break here, its so busy and you its obvious why. Great Ice cream, great service and great prices too.

“One of my favourite gelato in Italy”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

The shop is far from the city centre but it shouldnt put you off from making your trip to this place. In fact I quite love the neighborhood and the surrounding area, it is relatively quiet and there's plenty of restaurant nearby. Talking about the gelato itself, it's one of the best and certainly my favourite. There are so many varieties of chocolate based flavour so make sure you choose one of them. We went on a weekday night in April and there was no queue, we even managed to sit on the only sofa they have inside the store.

“Chilli Chocolate Ice Cream”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Very nice ice cream - particularly liked the chocolate 'Aztec' with chilli although one scoop was enough and it actually got a bit painful to eat by the end of the scoop. If you are going to try this then I would recommend having this one on top so you can follow it by something a bit cooler......

“My favourite ice cream.”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

This amazing place is next to my place and this is very bad because it is very hard not to go there everyday! Best Gianduja ice cream. Almond and pistachio tastes are very rich. I JUST LOVE THIS PLACE!
