Fantastic ice cream, okay prices (2,5€ for 2 flavours). Straciatella was my personal fav. Very creamy, eat fast. Must go.

I'm ashamed to say we visited here every evening during our stay on La Maddalena. The ice cream is freshly made on site, the cones are great (no cheap wafers here). I highly recommend a visit.

Great icecream. They don't serve too many tastes, because they present a few very well selected and prepared specialities. Delicious !!! I strongly recommend to taste it !!!

I chose the best-rated ice-cream vendor in La Maddalena and went there to taste it: the first thing that surprised me is that there was nobody and the feedbacks on TripAdvisor told it was alwazs crowded, secondly the choice of tastes was limited to 6 or 7 tastes like Nociola, Biscotti, Yogurt, Fragola, Cioccolato con Arancia and 2 or 3...

We went there nearly every evening for two week and tried almost every flavour all fantastic. Unfortunately because they are so busy and popular they have no time to smile!

I've had a lot of great Italian ice cream but this definitely one of the best. The pistachio and mascarpone was divine as was the hazelnut. The gluten free cones are great too. There are not piles of flavours but the ones they have are excellent.

I'm not a fan of icecream so the first time we went I didn't even order a cone. My husband insisted I tried some of his and it was so delicious that I practically ODed on the stuff after that - we went almost every evening. OMG the calories!

Went here a couple of times as the ice cream was delicious. All the cones were GF and there were dairy-free options too. Very friendly staff and great service.

The best ice cream in La Maddalena. We have traveled a lot in Italy and tasted many different types of Italian ice cream and I can surely say that this one is the best in La Maddalena. Try hazelnut, its delicious!
