Without no doubts, Gelatauro serves the best ice cream in Bologna. I really love the atmosphere of the place which is very quite and peaceful. High quality ingredients mixed with high expertise. If you go to Bologna, you cannot simply miss it.

The place is very nice and the personnel very kind. Icecream is very good. I Took pistachoes and pumpkin with cinnamon and it was really good. Portion is a bit small But Price is lower compared to the Bologna standard (price/quantity/quality).
