The best ice cream in town with lots of fruit and not too much sugar. They also serve illy coffee which is delicious. Service is not always great though: one of the boys behind the counter gets grumpy sometimes.

We stopped off for a coffee and cake in this wonderful place and discovered a real taste of Italy! Fabulous home made cakes, biscuits, snacks and lunches. Plus amazing ice cream. Do visit. It's brilliant.

I had a quick dessert here as I heard a lot about this place. It was nice interior... Hot chocolate made of powder (you can purchase in Italy in the supermarket..) Ice cream nice, small cake, cannoli average. Service also average. I found better Italian gelateria in Bournemouth with friendlier staff.

STAFF TRAINING definitely needed here. This is a pity as the ice cream is delicious, if a bit expensive and the cakes look good. I looked down the reviews to see if I was the only person who had this saddening experience and found this review already here. "I've read on Echo and heard from my friends that Giggis has... More

I visited Giggis specifically as I had heard that they offered vegan ice cream, which is not something that is easy to find! There were 4-flavours of vegan ice cream available, as well as some sugar free and gluten free options. I opted for a chocolate ice cream and it was heavenly. I would highly recommend a visit to Giggis... More
