Got lemon, raspberry, mango....all the best. Mango tastes like the fresh stuff. The caramel and choc chip were also worth it. Closes at 7:30 so don't miss it!

High quality gelato at a reasonable price.

When I arrived, a fellow customer said Rick Steves said it was the best gelato in Cinque Terra (all five villages), for whatever that is worth.

But the real deal is the variety of flavours. Prickly pear, kiwi and banana, and hazelnut are what I had (although they're know for cinnamon). Prickly pear was okay but the other two were amazing. Of the three dozen gelato ive had over the past few weeks, the hazelnut is by far the best.

I was excited to try the prickly pear flavour but the gentlemen told us he couldn't give us a sample. We were the only ones at the shop at the time, so I don't think it would've been much of an inconvenience. Such a shame as I'm sure the gelato would've been great. A little customer service goes a long way.

I think this place ranks at the top. While they have ample selections, we both had yogurt & honey and creme caramel and they were delicious. One of the recommendations in Rick Steves books on cinque terre and he’s on the money. Try it, busy place and area but worth it.
