The yong lady selling ice cream touches the cones with her bare hand, the one she uses to take the money from the clients. Long nails, chipped manicure. I have asked her why doesn't she use gloves and she had no explanations to give.

Many flavours available, if you are one to try 'liquorice' and 'mirto' for example. We had a cone and a tub. By the time we had paid the ice cream had more or less totally melted. The cone was practically inedible and the tub left containing only liquid. This was in moderate Sept heat only, nothing north of 30 degrees. My main issue with this gelateria is the ATROCIOUS service we had to endure from the inexcusably rude woman. Snappy, ill tempered, refused to accept a 10 euro note without a 2 euro coin (of which we had none!) - we were advised by the server to beg for change form passers by. I asked if she had coconut flavour available, to which she scowled and asked me 'what is coconut' in perfect english. if you take offence easily at any other language other than Italian, don't work in the busiest tourist destination in Sardinia. There are plenty other ice cream parlours in Alghero that offer friendly service and even better ice cream, so head ANYWHERE but here. ANYWHERE.

Lots of gelato places, all are mostly good only some are disappointing. You want a really good - one where you can try lots of flavours and not upset the server? This the place. Try the Mirto - this is a Sardinian specialty and appears as a vivid sky blue colour.

The server here has a great sense of humour, a little sarcastic but in a really funny way and means to entertain you. She has tonnes of patience, is great with tourists and tries really hard to communicate in a few languages - English, French, German. The flavours of gelato here are exactly like eating its counterpart - the creamy ones were great but even the sorbets were amazing, like watermelon.

Fabulous choice of flavours - even for lactose-free. I had a scoop each of the lactose-free dark chocolate and strawberry flavours and they were gorgeous. For those less inhibited by dietary issues the choice is even greater, all similarly scrummy. Well worth a visit.

One of the best ice cream places in Alghero. Very good homemade ice cream. Well worth a visit - even in cooler weather.
