“Lively geletaria & family friendly football cafe”
Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

The staff were excellent. Service was faultless. Children accommodated well. Plenty of high chairs & lovely toilets with baby change facilities. There's a large screen at the back playing pop videos to entertain the kids. On football days expect the local teams to be on & the locals to crowd in for a coffee whilst watching the game. All were very friendly despite our children giving good competition to the football commentators. The food was good but nothing special. The ice cream portion sizes are generous. Prices were reasonable given the sea front location.

“lively and with good service”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We had drinks here and watched the London Olympics on big television screens which were set up for clientele and passers by to watch. We enjoyed the vibe, the good service and the location is right on the water. A great place to stop off for a summer aperitif or an ice-cream when in Riva del Garda.

“Lovely ice cream and crepes”
Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Visited here five years ago and just had to go back. Not disappointed, great selection of ice cream dishes. Also tried the crepes which came with a lot of fresh fruit. Not badly priced so have an ice cream whilst waiting for the ferry to dock nearby.

“Good icecream”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

A good place to taste a good italian icecream. It's located about 10 meters from the Garda Lakeshore. From there you have a nice view to the lake and also you can go for a nice walk on the lakeshore
