They make great home made Italian ice cream. Pretty authentic as well. Price is reasonable compared to similar places in Nairobi. If in Mombasa, at least one visit is a must. And if you get hooked, you'll keep going for more.

Not sure why people are so hard on this place? We were a group of 4 adults and 3 small children and we couldn't have been happier! Besides the fact that the place has air conditioning (a welcome reprieve from the hot and humid December weather), the ice cream was delicious. We all left happy! The staff were all very friendly and professional. We would definitley visit again next time we are in Diani.

Very nice selection of artisanal Italian icecream. In particular the mango icecream is great. However, at Ksh 200 per scoop the price is a little high.

Thankyou for your valuable feedback. We have reviewed the pricing structure and are happy to inform you that the prices are now as low as 120/- for a standard scoop of gelato. Enjoy your mango gelato; Sir. Karibu tena.

A far cry from what Europeans would expect from Good icecream however for the local crowd this is a popular joint. I have sampled a few of the flavours and found them just acceptable. An effort on improving quality would go a long way in making this brand a household name.

Dear Mr Azhar,
Our products are made of the highest quality and selected fresh ingredients and in accordance with Italian gelato standards. We are careful to constantly check on product quality and consistency. Our chefs are trained in Italy and regularly visit Italy and other parts of Europe with the aim of expanding their knowledge and bringing their gelato experience back home for the benefit of our patrons. We however regret that our product did not meet your expectation. We would appreciate if you could share with us in greater detail the fall backs that you have identified to assist us to improve.
Thanks.

They have a wide variety of decadent flavours of gelato slush and sorbet. Our weekend is not complete without a visit to temptations.
