I have been walking through one of the main roads in downtown when I come across Don Gelato.At first sight I thought this was the usual junk food place for budget tourists and couldn't be more wrong than that! In a nutshell I had "gelato" twice and so my wife and we were absolutely delighted.They put a counter there as... More

We stopped in here today and were pleasantly surprised with the pricing, the flavors and the cleanliness of the place. My friend had anguria which was very good and I had fior di latte. We will definitely be back if we have the time!

Great and accessible cafe which will feel familiar to tourists as a Commercial coffee bar. Lovely cakes (I recommend the cassatina). Friendly staff and free wifi!

Gelato at it's finest! The two guys working the counter in this place were earning their keep. We were served quickly and allowed to taste samples. The flavors were amazing.

Every time I go to "don Gelato" is an new experience. Everything is super!! You can eat ice creams, milkshake, donuts, biscuits and all is so sweet and perfect. The staff is also kind. Thus... You HAVE TO try Don Gelato !!

The granite and gelati in here are wonderful, really delicious. I saw one person eating the most enormous ice cream filled brioche but i had a fantastic ice cream( cherry, one of my favourites) a a delicious granita. Only managed one visit, but on arrival in palermo found they had a branch there top - with extremely good cofffee

We went to Don Gelato three times, each time for cannoli :) One of the best things we tried in Palermo! Ice creams are good and portions really generous, but I believe that there are better places to have an ice cream. Service was fast and friendly.

We had ice cream here couple of times. The ice cream is average for Palermo and nothing special. It's good if you want to sit down in the heat if the sun and it serves coffee, pastries, etc also. Personally, I'd eat else where for better taste.

The place is quite new, colourful and modern and invited you to come in. Unlikely traditional "gelateria(s)" where you have a beautiful display of all the ice cream tastes and actually see how they look and feel here they were hidden inside the fridge. You only got to read names. The guys serving were nice and smiley but that didn't... More
