If you like light, fruit-tasting ice cream then you will be not disappointed. There is great selection of fruit sorbet-type gelatos in this shop. I tasted several of them and all they were great.

I am a foodie who researches and goes out of my way to find the best food. I saw the reviews that this place has received and decided to try it. It wasn't hard to find. As you walk down the street you will see a small crowd of people outside this place. I tried 2 or three flavors and... More

It is ridiculous that such an ORDINARY ice cream shop is ranked at the top in a town like bergamo. Don't bother to try it. There is absolutely nothing special about it.

So many flavors to choose from - their mint chocolate chip was packed with dark chocolate pieces!! My husband had their "duplo" and was surprised at how many pieces of wafer and chocolate he received!

After reading all the positive reviews on Tripadvisor I simply had to go and check this place out. I was not disappointed! The best gelato I ever had in Italy. It was really perfect and the servings were indeed, like other said as well, very generous. I tried the tiramisu, chocolate and rum rasin. What a taste sensation! If you... More

Found this on TA and decided that we had to visit whilst in Bergamo as I am an ice cream fiend. As other reviewers have said it is quite a walk out of the city but even in 40 degree heat, it was worth the walk!. The staff were very friendly and happy to talk about their flavours. The panna...

Quite a bit out of the centre of Bergamo, but due to great TA reviews we walked there. Not a cafe, just a shop a few people can sit on a bench inside or on some chairs outside. The ice cream is really lovely with a huge choice of flavours and not too expensive. They should capitalise on their success... More
