The ice cream is average good and the service is nice, but it is open in summer only with a limited time in the day, when it happens to be almost always too crowded, and it's not structured to give you the time to decide and feel all the good things an ice cream can give.

They have a great range of flavors and taste, with some really friendly staff. It's definitely a local favorite and worth a visit. The dark chocolate (72%) and raspberry are sure winners.
