This is one of the best gelato I ever tasted while in Italy so far. The Ricotta flavoured gelato is so unique; slight cheese in taste and rich in flavour. The Black Berry flavour too is out of this world... thanks to the owner for sharing his passion for gelato with tourist like me. Thank you Gelateria Vernazza.👍👍

I have been traveling through Italy for years.. and this is by far the best gelato I have ever had throughout Italy. We could not just eat here the once time! You must try the ricotta e fichi gelato!!!

We wanted to reward ourselves after hiking from Monterosso to Vernazza. We were able to get a sample of ricotta & fig and sweet wine cream. We have never seen those flavors and they were wonderful! Only 2.5 euro for 2 scoops and she even gave a small piece of waffle cake on top of the gelato!

The gelato was fresh and offered a wide variety. Staff was friendly. No sampling allowed, which can make it a bit of a gamble with some of the more exotic flavors

This gelateria in Vernazza was just the bottom floor of our rented apartment. We were in the 3rd floor and had to come down several steps and walk in an alley to reach the street level of Vernazza, to get to our favorite gelateria... There were a lot of choices for gelato flavors and the portion the nice lady gave... More

My Husband and I stopped in but actually left because the staff was so incredibly rude. A young girl with glasses was working, and when we asked about prices she was very sarcastic and talked down to us like we were stupid. Two weeks in Italy and this was the worst customer service we experienced.

Nice gelateria with delicious gelato and also good cannoli! If you like coffee, try the afogatto, a mix of the good italian expresso and vanila ice cream!

I've made a quest of seeking good gelato in Italy and today happened int Gelateria Vernazza, where I found a selection of gelatos (gelati?) unlike any others. Many combinations of syrups, nuts, and other toppings mixed in with unique flavors. I got the sense that they change the offerings so rathere than list what we had I'll just say all... More
