Best ice cream in the world. Once we tried it, we became obsessed with it. Very large scoops, and they even have pots for take ice cream home. Prices are average for Switzerland.

If you want real Italian style gelato go to Italy - or to Manu in Geneva! Fresh ingredients. Delicious! The ice cream sandwiches are great too!

We visited the location on rue des Paquis. We first walked into a different Gelato place that seemed too commercial and not very authentic. We left and walked down to Manu II Gelato Italiano and were not disappointed. The had great flavors and we were sure to visit our second night in Geneva as well!

I didnt expect to find such a real italian gelato in Geneva. Wide assortment of flavours, and all natural made fresh every day. Personally i really liked the sorbetto cioccolato fondente and the pistacchio among all I strongly recommend to try it ! There are 2 location, one in rue des Paquis 15 just few meters from the right side... More
