“Very good icecream”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Perhaps the best ice cream in Rio.
The owner, Mario, is a very nice Italian guy.
You can only try and icecream without paying anything

“The BEST gelato in Rio !”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

I am a regular since this place opened, and I have to say, HANDS DOWN, this is the best gelato in Rio ! it is the only one that actually reminds me of the ones I had in ITALY. Actually, that`s what it feels like: it feels like you`re in italy when you`re in there, with the italian music, the ambiance and all...!

This is a family business, and the owners are very nice. The father of the family is Italian and has been living in Rio for ages.

That being said, the pricing is great. It is not CHEAP, but I would even dare to stay that it is underpriced for what it is...!!

“Excellent Italian Gelato!”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is where we go to for all our ice cream / gelato needs! Their Leblon branch is located two blocks from the beach and close by the shopping area on the Ataulfo de Paiva and Afranio de Melo Franco intersection. It is not a café with a proper sitting area, but rather a gelato counter. But do not fool yourself by appearances. There are so many overpriced ice cream parlors in Leblon... I believe Amarena is a fantastic alternative with great value and a wonderful selection of flavors. Their gelatos are really, really delicious! Do not miss out when you stroll by!
