We had two ice creams in one day from this gelateria, they were that good! In particular, the cheesecake, which had sumptious quantities of real fruit in it, the panna cotta with chocolate wafers (my first choice) and most of all, the blackcurrant tart ice...More

My wife and I walked over a mile to get to this place that was highly recommended… Sadly they don’t have gluten-free cones for her so she had a cup. I had the large cone (mint crisp and vanilla). Long line. Worth the wait for...More

I love my gelato and icecream but the tiramisu mousse was terrible. I even had to throw it out which i hate throwing food away. We had 3 flavours and the other house speciality which i cant remember was not much better. Worst gelato I've...More

Poor pun for review title but don't let that put you off joining the queue for a gelato from here. Flavours are interesting and punchy. Texture is gloriously smooth and silky. A true symphony of taste on your palate. Prices are reasonable with plenty of...More

Delicious ice cream, 2 flavours for only 2 euros. There is a lot of choice, but I would for sure recommend the mousse ice cream for chocolate lovers. There id a chocolate and a tiramisu mousse option, and it is something I had never tasted...More

This gelato is definitely a classic and has the richest creamiest taste and texture. This (and GROM) won our votes for best gelato in town!

I've heard the queues can get pretty long, however when I went there were people waiting but moving along quickly. I tried the lemon and loved it! And at 1 euro for one flavour, you really can't go wrong!

I can really tell that this ice cream is good. The queue on a non-holiday was constantly way long and kept being long for the 30 minutes I was there during late afternoon. The price is very cheap 2 euro for a big ice cream...More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria

This is probably too late for you, but maybe someone else will come across it later. For finding the place in practice, an exact address will not be of much help to you. But you will easily spot it if you stand near the... More
