A couple dozen quite fancy flavours, sweeter than average still very pleasant. Nicer, more personal and attentive service than most. Will be back

Good gelateria in Centrale area with lots of unique flavors. Reasonable prices (about 2.50 euros for 2 flavors).

There was just so much to choose from! €4.40 and had 2 generous scoops of Baccio and something fruity with cherries. Delicious as our dessert! The locals can buy in larger take home quantities. Very friendly service. And lots of Sorbets to choose from too.

I stumbled upon this gelateria and seems to be a local place. Very friendly and really good gelato. I've tried the cumin (surprisingly very good) and the dark chocolate with ginger. I'll be coming here again!!

A couple dozen flavours including some original ones - "Judas' blood" is chocolate with sour cherries. Reasonable prices, a couple of seats on a bench outside in good weather.

Great choice of gelateria if you have time & are waiting for a train at Milano Centrale. Good selection of flavors and it looked like they were all handmade by the friendly gentleman serving them. It was refreshingly non-touristy as well.

If you find yourself by Centrale, do yourself a favor and visit Francesco at his family's gelato shop! While studying abroad in Milan, my friends and I were lucky enough to have found this place early in the semester and made a visit there at least once a week! Everyone we brought fell in love with Francesco's fresh gelato! He... More

Instead of having dessert at a restaurant, we decided to go for a stroll in search of a gelateria. In a small street near Central Station we found Paganelli; a small, traditional family-run shop. There are loads of flavors to choose from, but I stuck to my newly-discovered favorites: fig and tiramisu. The perfect end to a warm, busy day!

It was difficult to find this gelateria at first we thought it was supposed to be in the main road, but it is just down Via Adda. Nice neighbourhood shop, not too busy so you can spend some time choosing. The owner speaks english too so that helped. If you are an icecream fan then you will find your favourites... More

It is as good as the reviewers suggest I mean it is just ice cream so don't go massively out of your way - but it was the best I had on a recent visit - and I've sampled a few in my time

Neighbourhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
