Should be closed down! Scam! Price posted was 4 euros for 2 scoops but made up a reason why it should be 10 euros instead. Because some ice creams are more than others?!?! Stay away!

They play the oldest trick in the book - not list any prices for their gelatos and charge an exorbitant price. In our case, 10 Euros for two scoops. Indeed the portion was ginormous but at 10 Euros, it's by far the most expensive ice cream I've ever had and completely forgettable. DON'T GO HERE!

Having seen people walking around with waffles, I thought that I should treat myself with a sugary snack. Waffles are prepared in advance and reheated. They offer a selection of toppings, nutella, panna and syrups. The price is €6-€8. Despite all the negative reviews, I am satisfied with my purchase.

Asked for 4 regular ice creams. The ticket that we received was €35.50. Have to pay €36....... This is absolutely outrageous. Don't go here!

When I ask clearly for a small cone (I even said piccolo to be on the safe side) I don't expect to be given a medium one. Also why were there two different prices for the small ones? (Yes you guessed which one they charged.)

Nothing more to say - amazing flavours and fabulous choice Don't forget cash though as they have no card option (though they should as are not cheap) Ask for a few samples before making your final choice

As the other reviewers say, this place scams tourists. It's located right near the train station, where harried tourists are an easy target. My husband and I were on a walk back to our AirBnB and I decided too late that I wanted gelato. By that time, we were past all the good little places in the center. They pounced... More

My wife and I stopped in on our way home for the evening and before we knew it we had a €20 bill. We picked flavors and they stuffed their largest cup and cone, handed them to us and rang us up before we knew what happened. There are a TON of other places that don't intentionally rip you off....

You cannot miss the place which is well situated and looks attractive. I asked for a cone with one flavor (looking typical) and has the surprise to get a narrow cone with a large quantity of ice cream unbalanced on the top. The bad surprise was the price, 8 Euros, which is the normal price of a full dessert in... More
