I stumbled upon U Gelato du Caruggiu based on its tripadvisor ranking and it turned out to be the best Gelato of my trip to Italy. I couldnt more highly recommend eating here and especially trying the dark chocolate ice cream (dairy-free).

A good ice-cream: I had "violetta" and "arancia" (blood orange) and both were good. The owner let me try the flowers before I bought the ice cream, which was very kind.

It offers many flavours and uncommon ones as well. I've tried many gelateria places, but this is my favourite!

This gelateria is worth hunting for. We has some and then had to get more before we left because it was so good. Lots of great flavors.

I wanted excellent gelato and wasn’t disappointed with U Gelato. The gelato was wonderful! The owner Moreno was very friendly, and clearly proud of his product. It was so good I had to get another before I left.

We were very lucky (or unlucky) to visit this place for our first glimpse of the world-famous Gelato. Definitely try the dark chocolate as it is quite simply other-worldly. We would go to other Italian cities and for example tried Venchi numerous times but the...More
