The ice creamis tasty and good quality, as it is usual in Bologna. What makes the difference is their special flavours (Giambologna, or something similar which I've tasted and really liked) and the small "exhibition" of ice cream machines. The service is nice and gentle as well, in this neighborhood probably this is the best gelateria.

The gelato was overly sweet with a gummy sticky texture. Have you ever chewed gum too long where it gets very elastic and sticky? That’s how this gelato was. It was so bad we threw it out after a few bites. So sad. :(. We walked by a couple days later and there were people in there! I wonder if we just got an old batch or picked the wrong flavor. This was the absolute worst gelato during our Italy trip. And we ate a lot!!

We have returned! Visited Bologna two years ago, I've been thinking about this gelato ever since. Of course our first stop in Bologna this year. Possibly the best gelato in Italy.

We had a great experience visiting this small, artisanal gelateria. We got to taste flavours before choosing and we were not disappointed. The black sesame ice cream in particular comes highly recommended, but all flavours have that special touch that only real passion can give them. This combined with a high level of service equals a five star rating.

Located off the main tourist roads, this gelateria is a hidden gem. Look out for their flavours of the day!
