A guidebook highly recommended this place for gelato, but we couldn't understand why. It was nothing special, especially after all the amazing gelato places we had visited during our 19 days in Italy. It's ok, but don't go out of your way for it. In...More

Sitting by the canal watching the sun set on a beautiful February evening eating delicious ice-cream. What else could you wish for? Fab flavours on offer. This was recommended to us by a local and definitely worth a visit.

It was average. Nothing more or less. Probably a place where the locals frequaint more than the tourists. Its location is excellent, and service is pretty decent. You need to be clear if you are eating in or out. The price is average for what...More

Gelateria was recommended by a local. It was crowded when we passed in both the afternoon and evening. We waited on line and glad we did. The chocolate and coffee was amazing. We even tried for a last scoop but arrived to late. We had...More
