“Pistachio does not get better than this!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Just back from 4 th trip to Alghero- discovered this place about 5 years ago and it is a predominant reason for returning! I sampled ice cream from many other gelaterias initially but they were not comparable. I have also eaten pistachio in Florence and rome's reportedly best ice cream shops - this pistachio beats them all. You can tell by it's colour it is made with real sicilian pistachios and the taste totally supports this. It is delicious. Bruno is a fabulous guy and works so hard but still smiles. I am gutted to be home!! I can recommend evening eating in summer is best as melts to quick to get best flavour in the day- best to not eat pudding walk off your dinner on the way there. Other flavour tried all fantastic too- as well as pineapple granita- fabulous. I really don't know what anyone is talking about when they give a negative review for this place perhaps Bruno was on holiday. Thanks Bruno hope to be back soon xxx

“Delicious! Best ice cream in town”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

I'm not ashamed to say, in my 10 day visit to Sardinia, I visited the Gelateria at least 5 times. Irresistible! My personal favourite was the stracciatella & chocolatto (pardon the spelling), my boyfirend tried various flavours, each one as good as the other. I only wish we had Bruno in England!

“Best Ice Cream In Town!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We were enticed into this quirky little 'gelateria' by the promise of tasty home-made ice cream from the quirky home-made sign outside after trying a couple of the other ice cream shops around Alghero. It was by far and away the best ice cream we encountered and we went back for seconds the very next day! Although the selection is not as extensive as some of the other gelaterias there is enough choice and the quality far exceeds anything else we ate. In total we tried 5 of the flavours; chocolate, fruits of the forest, hazelnut, passion fruit and mango and all were exquisite. At €3 for 2 generous scoops you can't go wrong!

The gentleman who owns/runs the shop is very friendly and just a little bit eccentric! The place was always busy and now we understand why. Would thoroughly recommend and can't wait to go back!

“Best icecream”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Go here, order an icecream or drink and enjoy. Friendly, English speaking owner with a great sense of humour. Perhaps less flavours than some of the other gelaterias but all good.

“Beautiful ice creams”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Great selection of flavours, i had the nocciola and chocolate, the chocolate is very nice and definitely uses dark choc. Prices are very reasonable and the owner is very friendly.
