Usually Monday nights are a non-event where I come from; especially at 10pm Not so in Trieste; and not so at Gelateria Zampolli. The place was crowded and very busy with a constantly new clientele presenting to their ice cream/gelati 'fix'. Delicious and well worth trying. YUM!!

This is not a restaurant, it is an ice cream sell only, but: I have been in many places around the world, never tasted better ice creams.

I love this gelateria, it's simply amazing. I tried maybe 10 flavors within 3 days, I especially recommend their mousse. Gelateria is always full and ambiance is really nice, happy people eating great ice cream, what else do you want? :)

We make it a point to go here several times during our five visits to Trieste over the past 20 years. Been all over Europe, enjoyed gelato in over 50 places-- this is the best. Apparently the locals think so as well as it's always been packed with people. A trip to Trieste would not be complete without several visits... More

Classic, historic, old school gelateria. A large selection of ice cream, my favourite is ricotta and pistachios. Simply the best ice cream i have ever tasted.

I came here I don't remember ho manyu times - sometimes two a week- for ice-cream, even in autumn/quite winter. It is simply the best ice cream in Trieste and also one of the best I have tasted. A huge variety of different flavours, all good. To be tried.
