The ice cream is made using natural ingredients and they have a lot of fun flavors using local specialties! The owner even gave us some insider tips, where to visit! The kids loved it and the view and location can't be beat!

Strongly recommend! High quality fresh Home made gelato with no artificial tastes or colors added. Great variety of natural tastes, also yogurt and sorbet. My favorites were Carpe Diem, pistachio and coconut. Very friendly and dedicated owner. Great location on the main square of Lerici, easy to find!
