Out of turistic zone, it deserves the ten minute walk. Try the morroni cream, pinolli e mascarpone or any other... they’re gorgeous. Unfortunately there’s only one table inside with two chairs.

Cremeria Santo Stefano is the real deal: old school hand made and delicious gelato. It does cost a bit more than others but the quality is well worth it. I've been traveling to Italy for 22 years and this ranks among the best gelato anywhere!

Wonderful ice cream. I was lucky that there were no queues when I went. I had the chestnut ice cream and it was amazing. Also nice to go up the road and see the guy making ice cream

Very good and tasty ice cream. We all love it. The one with mascarpone cheese is my favorite. You should visit if you have time in Bologna.

I live in Bologna and I love ice creams. There are several places in town where you can taste good gelati. But Cremeria Santo Stefano is definitely the best choice! Each month they have a special flavour, which is always worth trying. You won't be...More

People say it is probably the best ice maker in the world, and maybe they are…. Fascinating little shop (a little off centre Bologna) and off course delicious ice cream!!
