We look forward to eating gelato here every night after dinner while we are on vacation! The owner is so nice and makes the best gelato on the island! You won't be disappointed!

What a treat to find a Bolognese making gelato in Isla Mujeres. Excellent, fresh... the straciatella and amarena were spot on and the prices lower than some other gelaterie. 110% recommended.

Dropped in for a milkshake, vanilla of course, and this was fine and filled the spot. I'd have liked it a little thicker but that's just my taste.

We have sampled a lot of ice cream/gelato on the island, this is by far, the best! Well priced, great flavors, very polite owner. Would recommend highly.

Got some delicious chocolate gelato here, exactly what I was looking for. Tiny place but it's more fun to roam and eat gelato anyway :)

my first visit was this past september when it was much more humid. I enjoyed the gelato and three cups of espresso back then and made it a point to return. here I am enjoying two cups of coffee and more italian ice cream. the owner is super friendly and very accommodating. the coffee is freshly brewed each order.

We stop at Stefano's gelateria every time were on Isla (actually multiple times during our trips). He is very friendly and his prices are incredibly reasonable. I think we paid like 5 or 6 USD for 3 scoops of gelato and a cappuccino. He is from Italy so he knows what he is doing and everything is amazing! My fiancé... More

We stopped here several times during our trip for a very refreshing treat. The gentleman was so nice and let us sample to decide what we wanted.

Our daughter lives on Isla Mujeres. When we visit, we always come her. Great gelato that's made on the premises. I've never been disappointed . Tiny shop, but pleasant. Owner is from Italy, a real gentleman. Nothing else comes close on this island when it comes to ice cream or gelato.
