A lovely place to get an amazing ice cream - nowhere else beats it in Sorrento! They don't get inundated with loads of people waiting and are all the better for it.

Bougainvillea became a daily haunt for us during our stay in Sorrento for our Gallato fix! Some amazing flavours im just sorry we weren't in Sorrento long enough to try them all! Highly recommend the cheesecake and Kinder Bueno flavours.
