I come here whenever I can. I tried every single flavour of ice cream and still haven't regretted any! My favourite are pumpkin ("Zucca"), ginger ("Zenzero") and Cannolo (JUST TRY IT!). If you can, go to this vintage-looking pearl even if it's a bit out...More

This store is a bit out of the way but really worth it. Good selection and you can tell it's the real deal. No bright colors or overflowing containers here. This was one of the best gelatos we had all trip and it was on...More

Between four of us we spent a very happy hour eating ice cream and the home-made cakes, drinking coffee and thick chocolate. So much to see as well as taste, this place has lots of 'ice cream' related stuff, old photos and watercolours. Fabulous flavours...More

Without no doubts, Gelatauro serves the best ice cream in Bologna. I really love the atmosphere of the place which is very quite and peaceful. High quality ingredients mixed with high expertise. If you go to Bologna, you cannot simply miss it.

The place is very nice and the personnel very kind. Icecream is very good. I Took pistachoes and pumpkin with cinnamon and it was really good. Portion is a bit small But Price is lower compared to the Bologna standard (price/quantity/quality).

We visited il gelatauro on a gelato tour of Bologna. Very old fashioned, and on a not so nice street, but worth the visit. Pineapple-mint, cinnamon, cannoli, even pumpkin. Not the best in Bologna, but very good and would recommend.
