Went on advice of trip advisor, you won't be disappointed, between us we tried: lemon, pistachio, mango and passion fruit, all excellent!

For after dinner, this is the perfect spot. Living in the US, I have often been disappointed with places claiming to sell gelato, but producing something that's not quite right. At Manu, you can mix flavors even with the small cup, so I had lemon--which I feel is a test of the quality of gelato--and mango, and it was excellent.... More

Manu gelati is to die for! There's one in Pacquix and another in Augustines. I will get on the tram just for the gelati it is so good. In fact I won't bother with others cos they can't compare (excepting the amazing one in Carouge...). I suggest fig and also nocciola.

Artisanal ice cream with many flavours, tasty but delicate. My favourite ones are pistachio and strawberry. Friendly staff.

Newly opened in Geneva, this place is serving probably the best ice cream i have tried here. True Italian art in gelato making with some classic tastes but also a monthly special and other less ordinary combinations. Also a nice surprise were the portions which are close to +50% vs other gelato places, for the same price. This is not... More

We are regulars to Manu. I love the dark chocolate sorbet (only place I can find chocolate sorbet) and mango sorbet. The quality is consistent. The service is excellent. Highly recommend it.

The gelato was so good- we had to go here every night! I loved the Chocolotto and coconut -- my son loved the pistachio! There was always a line, we waited! Of note: no credit cards-- so have your Swiss francs ready!

They're a little out of the way and only sell one thing, but what they have is fabulous. A great selection, and every flavour we had was fresh, smooth, and sweet without being overpoweringly so. Fast, friendly service, but I've heard it's often crowded on weekends.

I love ice cream, I adore gelato and I am over the moon that Manu exists in Geneva! It is true delicious creamy gelato, with very generous portions and lots of flavours to choose from. Don't even try somewhere else, this place is the best!

My wife and I have been to Manu at least 5 times in the 6 days we have been in Geneva. Every night is just as amazing as the last. Tonight they were out of my FAVORITE Forestta Nera but was given advice by the lady behind the counter. She was spot on with recommendations that would be an amazing... More
