The name of this establishment is misleading. What they are selling is not Italian gelato. We stopped by this past weekend and found the ice cream to be of very low quality. My daughter could not finish her one scoop of chocolate because, in her words, "It has a weird taste." Indeed, we found ice chips and a chemical aftertaste in sampling the vanilla, the "novità" and the sesame varieties. The texture is also rather unpleasant.

The employees seem uninterested in their jobs. A friend of one of the workers was standing in the door speaking very loudly to his buddy the whole time we were ordering. They seemed to regard us more as intruders than as customers.

As another reviewer noted, the space is small and the selection limited. Sorry to say I cannot recommend Arlecchino.

Must be the biggest frozen yoghurt and gelatto offering in Accra. Delightful treats any day.Just a nice way to conclude your visit to the street shops on Osu Oxford Street

It was good ice cream and pozza. They have a good atmosphere and I am not sure if they have kept it up. But when it first open everything was really excellent.
