Always very friendly and helpful, Run I think by a lovely young couple, airconditioned, so it was a lovely haven from the summer heat. I miss my evening limone and melone gelato.

Apart from some of the best ice-cream we've ever eaten (the lampone - raspberry - had the most amazing concentration of fruit flavour) the place is spotlessly clean and the service friendly (and remarkably patient with my attempts at Italian). There are a couple of tables inside, and the cool atmosphere was much appreciated on a scorching day in Turin. Not too far from the Egyptology Museum, it's worth seeking out!

Large Selection and Unique flavours. Very Good Service. During a long walk in hot and humid weather it was nice to sit down with some air conditioning. Close to the cities centre.

A great range of flavours, and generous scoop sizes. They had flavours ranging from mango, cherry, to coffee based ones. The gelato was smooth and the flavours were not overpowering. The prices were also very reasonable. It is walking distance from the main square in Turin, and the neighbourhood is reasonably quiet to walk around. I will definitely be visiting L'Essenza del Gelato again.

These flavors are so intense and fresh that it will be hard to beat anywhere in the world! Wonderful neighborhood to take a wander in and enjoy your gelato on a hot day....
