I "researched" pistachio gelato throughout the Cinque Terre and thought the pistachio gelato was so good here that I took the train back to Vernazza just to get another scoop.

We stopped here one afternoon and had some lovely gelato. I had the lemon and my husband had chocolate. Both were very good. I think if I had added a berry/raspberry with my lemon it would've been even better, will have to try that if/when...More

In a week spent in Italy inhaling gelato this provided the best I had for the entire time. They don't do samples which is a pity but the quality of the ice cream was outstanding. Not cheap, but then nothing in the Cinque Terra is....More

Decent place for gelato, no free samples offered though, which kinda irritates because who wants to try anything new if you don't know if you'll like it? It's not like they were packed with customers either- we came at a non busy time. The place...More
