Description: Panna Cioccolato is the first ice cream parlour with an open kitchen, so that our guests can see for themselves how our ice cream is made, the products we use and also how hygiene is first on our list.We also prepare pancakes, waffles, milkshakes and chocolate shakes.What is homemade Italian gelato?What is its quality?What is freshness?Italian gelato:Unlike other ice cream shops which use the "Italian gelato" name, an Italian flag or Italian name, our ice cream is Italian because it follows a 2000 year-old tradition with very strict rules on methodology and production, and above all on ingredients and quality of the product.To set up a true Italian homemade ice cream parlour, you need to have passed a course in a gelato school in Italy, know all about the Italian ice cream and best be of Italian nationality.Only with these characteristics we can offer our clients a true Italian gelato, homemade with all the care in the world.Otherwise, it will be a Spanish, German, French, English ice cream shop, with each their own features, but not Italian.Quality of the ice cream:Quality comes first and is based on the incorporation of fresh milk (Italian homemade Gelato can only be made with fresh milk), and even better if it is organic milk. We also need high quality sugar, but we go even further than that, because we only use pure brown raw cane sugar with treacle, exactly how gelato used to be made until the 1600. And obviously we add a lot of passion to it, too... These are the basic ingredients.The rest of the products do not contain added preservatives, no colouring or artificial flavours, and definitely no hydrogenated fats or GMO's. The result of these quality products is that our gelato is different, with a different taste and colour too.For fruit gelato we do not use fruit aroma but fresh fruit, almost all of it organic. That is why our passion fruit still has its seeds or the mango has tiny bits in it.The freshnessBecause there are no added aromas or preservatives, our gelato remains in perfect condition only 3 to 4 days. For this very reason we offer you "only" 16 flavours, which change daily.Our goal is to offer you homemade gelato made the same day. With more than 16 flavours this would be technically impossible, because the gelato would lose its essential features of freshness, taste and texture.

Wonderful home made Italian ice cream, great coffee and waffles run by the loveliest couple. We ended up visiting at least once a day on our recent holiday and will definitely be back!

I absolutely love their coffee, for me it's the best in the area of Los Cristianos. They have delicious ice cream as well.

The best ice cream in Tenerife! Italian of corso :-). Only 2,80 EUR for 2 big scoops. I also had a delicious cappuccino here. The crepes with fruit look delicious as well.

Soft, dark and very chocolately. What more could you want. This place makes the BEST ice cream and at very reasonable prices too. Much better that the mass produced stuff. My wife has long been a lover of Carte D'or but has abandoned it for Panna Cioccolato every time. A must visit when in Los Cristianos

I've have eaten a lot of ice cream and might even class myself as an expert. This place makes outstanding ice cream; if you like dark chocolate then try their extra dark chocolate ice cream and let it melt in your mouth if you can. It turns into a velvety, dark chocolate sauce that is almost like eating 70% chocolate. Addictive!!! You will return.
