Cosy little place near the Piazza della Unita. They have a wide variety of tastes as well as option for vegans. The highly recommended flavor i "Sacher" a combination of chocolate and apricot. It is good but my choice for the day was pink grape fruit and pomegranate. Refreshing on a hot day. The prices are reasonable and you get... More

The only agony is trying to choose between the 20+ flavors! Service fast and friendly. Fabulous gelato: I loved the cinnamon and ginger!

Couldn't believe all the options for vegans. Got the hazelnut and I think Madagascar vanilla. So creamy and delicious. What a find at such a great price! Too bad all gelato places didn't have more than just fruit flavours like this place does.

Best coffee gelato we've tasted in a long time (and we've come to Italy every year for the past ten years so we've eaten a lot of gelato!) Staff was friendly and efficient. Place was very busy...a sign of a good place!

Good choice for people with intolerance or allergy, the icecreams are signed with allergen chart... the place is tiny and always full of people, so there's a little to wait but it's worth

This was the best Gellatto I've ever had. Being vegan, I wasn't sure that I would find good flavors, but they had a perfect hazelnut, and a dark chocolate (and many others). It was perfectly smooth and delicious. It's open late, and Marco is very kind.

Besides quality there are various tastes. Very often you can find some new taste, and almost always it is the pleasant surprise. At least in my case, but long queue and many people in front is the sign that I'm not alone with this experience.

I lived in trieste for 6 years and i love Marco's icecream. Although is not the oldest or most popular place in town for ice cream is my favourite. Offers a wide range of flavours from the classics ones to more challenging tastes like chocolate -with-orange or after-eight. The icecream is prepared just behind the selling counter. Lactose free specials... More
