A gelato shop reviewed, says a lot. Well hike in from Vernazza, totally wrecked felt like gelato so ventured into this homemade store and wow did it impress. I mean it's just gelato and there are thousands of these places in Italy most of which I wouldn't bother reviewing, but this one I was thinking as I consumed the lime... More

Alberto's lemon granita, which is like a slushy, was the perfect thing to start us out on our hike. They had basil gelato, which intrigued me, but it was too early in the morning to try it.

I never had a bad gelato in Italy. This place was cheap, friendly, delicious...the consensus favorite flavors, the dark chocolate and coffee... both good strong flavor.

It's a cute little place to enjoy your Gelato (which was pretty good). There is a small alley that leads to a courtyard with tables and chairs. We loved the flowers and decorations in the courtyard and the overall appeal of the place. Owner was nice and friendly and you can taste as many flavors as you like :)

Best Gelato I have tried in Italy, and this is my second visit to this fine country. The basil flavor is exceptional: fresh, intense, and natural.

We ate at several places in search of the best gelato, in Florence and Cinque Terre, and this by far surpassed them all! I had the honey and my husband had the basil and they were incredible!

They don't need or endorsement, the line out the door says it all. They move quick so don't want off to some second rate gelato shop, you'll be glad you edited for the best.

You need a good ice cream after the steps, and this place gives it. Great selection of ice creams, including the unusual and refreshing basilico. Highly recommend.
