With a queue of locals outside we had high hopes for this local ice cream parlour which did not disappoint. The best gelato I had in my three weeks in Italy. Well worth a visit.

We took our bikes to ride along the waterfront of Viareggio and figured we deserved a gelato before jumped back on the train for Lucca. After a serious review of TA we decided try this place. On approach we saw a firetruck blocking the street out front of the laboratory and immediately thought the worst. Damn them, couldn't they have... More

This was the best tip we were given. Just delightful, never tasted ice cream as good. Do not bother with other ice cream parlours, save your calories for here you will not be disappointed.

No matter where you are in Viareggio, this place is worth the trip. Helpful friendly staff will explain the flavours to you (in Italian or English) and they have a flavour of the moment too.

It was the best ice cream I had in my life. It was homemade fresh and you could see how they make it.

Finally we went to taste this fabulous gelato, but the portions are half of what we normally receive everywhere else. Come on!

A local lady recommended this place which is just the next street over from the main road beside the passeggio. It was easy to find and yes, they speak very good English. The place was beautiful and sparkling clean. I had the medium cup with 3 flavours. All natural and absolutely the best gelato I ate during my entire stay... More

Unique flavours, the "crema dimentica" a smooth and delicious lemon/vanilla almost as creamy as the unrivalled lemon gelato in Amalfi. Buonissimo!

Great tasting ice cream for only €1 a scoop, will definitely come back here again in the next couple of days, worth the walk from the boulevard!
