I passed by several of these places early on in Rio and never thought to try them until one warm evening when I was contemplating ice-cream. I tried one of their grape (uva) popsicles and was sold. I stopped by for a different treat every night for the rest of my stay. My fave, besides the grape was the chocolate... More

The shop was easy to find and has a wonderful selection of delicious icecream! The staff were very attentive, offered samples to help us make the very difficult decision off what flavours to choose!

Great flavours mainly "tangerina", "manga" and "creme com biscoitos"(cream and cookies). However it's a bit expensive, but it total worth. It's my favourite brazilian ice cream!

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here, and will certainly be passing through again before leaving Rio. It's a 5 minute walk from Copacabana Beach and when we went there it was full of loud kids and a loud dog (maybe me and my buddy are being grumpy old men) but there is no distracting from the quality of the product...

I've bought quite a few ice creams of this brand and each time I'm suprised about the price level and the poor service. I very much look forward to more competition - I only recommend this place due to lack of decent alternatives!

This is a great ice cream store in Rio. I think all flavours are good but the ones I prefer are the fruit flavours.

It is ok but Rio de Janeiro has to offer some other types of icecream which are superior to Sorvete Italia... Howver it is far better than those produced in industrial scale.

Delicious ice cream, different flavors, good treatment. It's a bit expensive but it's worth it even when at this hot city.

Yummy ice cream, busy but never too busy, lots of flavors sorbets and even diet ice cream. Yes the ordering system is odd but that's Brazil.... Terrified of staff theft only 1 person allowed to handle money. Try going to a club here it's a joke to buy a drink.

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
