Always come here. Owner not very friendly but ice cream makes it worthwhile. Turned up as normal. Not one tub of ice cream. Not for another week. What a liberty.

Great ice cream. Opposite the marina. Lots of tables and chairs outside. Lots of choice. 2 euros an ice cream. Staff very friendly unlike the other branch in cariati.

Best ice cream you will ever eat with a magnificent view from the top of Cariati. You can take a stroll through the cobbled Street of old Cariati and reach view points from the castle over the blue sea..

Best Gelato I had in 4 weeks in Ialy and unbelievably cheap. Had 6 different flavours over two days. Chocolates- Nero and award winning are amazing, all others were fruits and they were to die to. If I am ever within two hours drive of...this place, I will be back. Location is also amazing in a small walled town overlooking the Ionian Sea. Just to die for.More

So the young man whose mama cooked at one of the local restaurants told us about this gelateria. Definitely worth it if you are staying in old town Cariati. Very good, very yummy. I ate the lemon and my husband had the fragola (strawberry). But...apparently the chocolate is what wins the awards. You decide!More
