Different taste from other ice creams we tried. The consistency was a bit watery but the taste was very strong in a good way and you could tell it had a natural taste. A gelateria to recommend!

They have the red onion gelato, which you should try. Very special but not very good according to me. Pistachio is better.

We went here on an early Sunday morning and it was open. Very good cappuccino (I had two) and tasty and fresh from the oven pastry. It's a tipical italian bar, locals come here very early, chit-chat, have a quick coffee.

So hard to pick which flavour when they all looked great. Very good location and we were able to sit outside watching the world go by. This place was recommended so we were glad we went.

This is a place recommended by many tour guides, books and Magazines. Tonino makes icecream of things you didn't think you could make icecream from, like zucchini or red onion!
