We were recommended this gelateria by our air bnb host, and we were very glad we went! Incredible gelato with really interesting flavours that you may not find elsewhere.

We have returned! Visited Bologna two years ago, I've been thinking about this gelato ever since. Of course our first stop in Bologna this year. Possibly the best gelato in Italy.

We had a great experience visiting this small, artisanal gelateria. We got to taste flavours before choosing and we were not disappointed. The black sesame ice cream in particular comes highly recommended, but all flavours have that special touch that only real passion can give...More
